Pumpkin Patch 2016

Sadly, this was the first year in the past 4 that we didn't make it out to Bates Nut Farm for our pumpkin patch visit.  With Skylar being in school all day and so many after school activities we just couldn't find the time to drive out there.  With Halloween creeping up and us not having a pumpkin at the house yet I decided to take the kids to the Carlsbad pumpkin patch down the road.  

This pumpkin patch is off the freeway so the kids have seen it several times and really wanted to go into the corn maze they had.  Skylar was a fearless leader and was able to find the exit.

Skylar and Madden celebrating the maze run.

Madden was the king of the haystacks.

They painted mini pumpkins and then while they dried we picked out pumpkins for the family to carve.

Madden got a little grumpy at the end.  

It wasn't Bates Nut Farm and they didn't have the awesome array of pumpkins Bates has, but it was still a fun afternoon for the three of us.

  1. I love the picture of Skylar and Madden as the farmer and his wife in front of the tractor. Great picture of them jumping off the hay stacks. Maybe it wasn't Bates but it still looked like they had a good time!
