Mike's Farm Pumpkin Patch

Yesterday Summer and I went on a field trip with the little people to Mike's Farm. They are actually a tree farm for Christmas Trees and they have a HUGE Christmas shop there and restaurant. Mom, you'd love all the Santa stuff! During Halloween they have a Pumpkin Patch and Hayride so we thought...
What the hay!
(pun intended)
Let's take the kids!
Miah didn't wanna get off this tractor, he was in LOVE with it.

Penny was mesmerized by all the animals. Especially the dirty chickens and this vapid sheep (I love my new word I learned yesterday!) This sheep was seriously all about itself, flaunting it's fuzz all over the field.


Can you tell by their faces how much they loved the animals?

At the pumpkin patch we each got to pick one and take it home. Penny chose one the size of his head. It was perfectly round just like his own.

Miah wasn't too into the mud and dirt. He found a pumpkin quickly and then jumped back on the trailer to get out of the mud. He's such a clean freak.

The ride was super fun. I had hay sticking sharply in my butt and there was just enough rain in the air to make my hair fuzz up like the vapid sheep's. Penny was nervous at first but he soon warmed up. It was his favorite part of the whole day.



He felt so big sitting with all the bigger boys.
I sure love this man, look at those yummy hands!

The whole day was a success, even the hundreds of flies that ate the whites of our eyeballs (like the kids on TV in Africa) while we ate our lunches. Good times, good friends, good conversation!

So exciting. We are going there Saturday. Can't wait.

They have a "haunted hayride" on the 29th, 30th, and 31st for the big kids of course. I can't wait for that one either.

So what you are telling me in this post is that my grandchildren will not have whites of the eyeballs when I get there to "see" them???
What kind of mother lets the whites be eaten from her child's eyeballs. Hahahahaha...glad you had fun and I love that hat on my Izey. Love you and see you in 6 days. Mutha

Great pics! I can't wait to go to the pumpkin patch! It's been WAY too rainy and muddy here lately, but I think we might be able to go this weekend!
