It was amazing to watch this guy carve these pumpkins!
We took a hay ride down to the big pumpkin patch. Jackson didn't like the hay ride - I think the tractor was too noisy for him. He was very glad to get off! The hay ride took us to this great big pumpkin patch that you could walk through to find the perfect pumpkins. Adam, of course found a mud puddle to play in as soon as we got off the hay ride! (You can see the corn field in the background. There was a big corn maze, and Adam wanted to go in so bad!! He kept begging to go through the maze. When Scott went to check it out, they told him it was over 2 miles long from beginning to end, so we decided not to try it out. Adam was not very happy!)
Jackson loved the pumpkins! He still isn't quite walking yet, but we took him out of the stroller since there wasn't much mud. He crawled over to this pumpkin and didn't want to leave!
Adam found a great big pumpkin that he thought was the perfect one. It was too big and heavy, so Grandpa helped him carry it over to the wheelbarrow.
After more looking around, Adam decided he wanted this little bitty one instead. He could carry this one all by himself!
We pried Jackson away from the big pumpkin (kicking and screaming!), but soon put him down next to another one. While we searched for the perfect pumpkins, Jackson enjoyed stripping the leaves off of the plants and banging on the pumpkins closest to him.
Here we are with our pumpkins.
We decided to walk back to the farm instead of listening to Jackson scream on the hayride. Over at the farm they had a fun playground and a bunch of other things for kids. Adam got a pumpkin painted on his cheek.
He also enjoyed a pony ride.
And we all enjoyed some delicious roasted corn! It was so yummy! I think Jackson enjoyed it the corn more than any of us. He didn't want to give it up!
It was the perfect way to spend a beautiful October afternoon!
