I feel like most bloggers out there with kids have the obligatory blog post about going to the Pumpkin Patch… or whatever it’s called in your neck of the woods. Well, J.C. and I don’t have kids, unless the dogs count, but we love kids. So, guess what? We went to the Pumpkin Patch and here’s a whole post dedicated to it. YAY!! If you don’t like really cute pictures of kids and animals, you might want to stop here… said nobody… EVER!
Every year, I go to the pumpkin patch, which happens to be called Old Milo Farms, with a group from the church. Since graduating high school in 2007, I’ve served in the children’s department as a Sunday School teacher. In the years past, it has been FRIGID and on a Saturday morning and J.C. was always working or hunting. This year, they decided to have it on a Wednesday night and the weather was perfect.
Basically we just did all the things the kids do… because we are just big kids at heart. And now for a picture overload.
That’s my bro and my little niece. They are pretty awesome.
That’s my BFF, the one I talked about here, and her little girl. They are pretty awesome too. And look at this awesome picture I captured of my brother and his little girl. You can’t really tell it’s them, but I LOVE it!
After we watched the “babies” ride the horse, we migrated on over to the other horses and cows in the stables. So sweet and pretty.
And this is how tall we were this fall…
FYI, J.C. just got off of work when we went out there… he doesn’t normally wear dirty jeans in public. Well, actually he does but he’s still fine so who cares? Not me 🙂
This is when we really felt like kids. These swings are the coolest things. They are made of telephone poles, black pipe, and ropes. One person gets on one end, another person on the other, and you could basically swing all day. Lots of fun to be had… even if you are 25 and 28!
Next up was the goats. Ya know, goats are such silly little animals. They make me laugh. They are just so dang goofy.
Who wouldn’t laught at that?!
And then there was a really sweet little donkey. That I played a prank on.
Obviously I’m still a kid because adults aren’t supposed to be doing rabbit ears on folks… or animals… right?! After the animals, we walked through the pumpkin patch to find all different shapes and sizes. I like the little guys.
And this here is the cutest child know to man displaying her corn cob and a little bitty pumpkin… I actually think it might have been a kumquat but I may be wrong. Either way, she loved it… and that’s all that matters!
And as the evening was winding down, so were the little ones. And my friends little girl was just plum worn out. The little thing laid her head right on his shoulder.
Isn’t that the sweetest picture?! I love it just a little. Okay, I lied. I love it a LOT! So, did you go to the Pumpkin Patch this year? Particulary Old Milo Farms? I would definitely suggest it. Even as adults, it’s a really good time. They also have a Christmas tree farm there as well. I hope that we can go pick a live tree this year as we celebrate Christmas in our new-to-us house. Won’t that be something?
