Pumpkin Patch 2011

So, we finally made it to the Pumpkin Patch this last weekend.  I week later than normal, but it worked out ok.  I had wondered if we were going to have a soggy mess since it had rained most of the week.  I was happily surprised when we got there and it wasn't too muddy (just enough that the boots got dirty!)

So, our morning started out with a train ride out to the patch:

Grandma and Lane on the Train

Easton on the Train.

Then we had to explore all the pumpkins and pick out the ones we liked best.  This was the boys favorite part of the day ... walking around in the pumpkins.

 There was also a hay maze for the boys to go through.  While they were in there Grandma snuck in through the exit and surprised them.

 We did face painting while we were there this year (something we forgot about last year).  Easton wanted a spider and Lane wanted a Bat on his forehead ... and they got what they wanted :)


Easton wanted to go see the animals so we did stop by and see the pigs, goats (momma with 2 babies), kitties, and rabbit.


Then it was time to ride the Caterpillar ride (Easton's first time).  The sit in the barrels and get pulled by a tractor through a corn field, pumpkins, and sunflowers.



 Then the picture that we take at the end of every trip to the pumpkin patch ... here is 2011 Lakeview Farms Pumpkin Patch picture.


The boys had a great time and so did my mom and myself.  We finished the afternoon by having lunch at Sonic (Easton's first time) and doing a little shopping at Kohls and Joann's.
