Pumpkin Patch!

Today we went to Petersen Family Farm to visit the pumpkin patch. We met Casey at the farm a little after 5:00. It was so so cold! It was such a cute little farm. They had chickens running around, a corn maze, a petting zoo, and a shop to buy produce. 
We went through the corn maze first. It was a little run down, but the kids still liked it. The kids could see the petting zoo area after they finished the corn maze and so they knew they wanted to go there next! There were a few goats, a big pig with sign that said "I bite", and they had some bunnies. You couldn't really pet the animals, but the kids had fun giving them some little food pellets.
After looking at the animals we walked through the corn maze and headed over to the hay bales. The kids had a lot of fun playing on them. We would have let them stay a little longer, but it was freezing, so we told them it was time to pick their pumpkins!
We picked our pumpkins and put them in the wheelbarrow and took them over to the scale to weigh them in. We then went into the little shop to pay for them. They had lots of good looking produce...I'll have to go back there in the spring and summer to get some food!
I think next year we'll try to come a little earlier so we can get first pick of the pumpkins...and maybe it won't be so cold! :)

Getting ready to venture out in the cold!
