I get a little psychotic around this time of year where family type events are concerned. I am normally a pretty laid back mom, but come October I start really trolling for the family friendly activities.
We went on the Pumpkin Patch Express and loved every minute of it. As far as family events goes, it is a bit pricey, but it is sooooo worth it.
The trip includes a 45 minute trip to a pumpkin patch by train, an hour at the farm (complete with petting zoo and pumpkin picking), and then the ride back. It was a great afternoon, made better by the company. We went with another family and had a little picnic while we were there in celebration of our friend's little man's birthday.
The kids got really muddy and worn out. We came home with at least three pies worth of pumpkin and a lovely pumpkin grown by the amazing Kira, who not only has a green thumb, but 9 other green digits as well.
(Isn't it loverly?)
( He is going to be embarrassed, but I love a Daddy-Daughter pic. Look at how much he loves her. Makes me happy. My husband will be glad that for once I am not posting a picture of him!)
