Our Annual Pumpkin Picking Trip

We plan an annual pumpkin picking trip out near Nannie and Grandpa’s house every year, and this year we lucked out! Even though we have had this date on the calendar for over a year, it turned out to be a warm, sunny fall day with temperatures in the 70s! We had a great time showing our cousin Liam around the farm, as it was his very first year celebrating with us! We went on a fun hayride, pony rides, corn maze & picked our pumpkins! We had a great time together!

Ben was feeling great after his surgery, and he had a fun time too!

The sing-along hayride was a blast this year!

Maybe the singing was a little too much for Abby…

Ben decided that he didn’t care how muddy the pumpkin patch was.. He was determined to crawl around and find the perfect pumpkin all by himself…

… and he did!

… but she was excited when daddy said she could throw it all at Uncle Kevin!

Abby wanted a “ghost” pumpkin this year, and Uncle Kevin went with a cool “bat” design. Emily and Ben are going to paint theirs instead!

We had a great time, and LOVE celebrating fall with our family!
