Pumpkin Patch #1 -- nothing spells fun like f-r-e-e

Organizing to go to the pumpkin patch on a Friday in our family is apparently an Olympic sport. We can never just go to a pumpkin patch.

Seriously: We had to get sandwiches ready for lunch. Print off the pre-paid tickets at the library because our computer refuses to work. Grab some water at the store because we left the water at home on the counter. Drive to the pumpkin patch only to find that it was too packed (4 school buses + 2 school vans = NOOOO!). Turn around and drive 40 minutes to a free pumpkin patch with fewer school buses. FINALLY sit down to have lunch before running off into the pumpkin patch.

Yup. What should take us 15 minutes took us like an hour.

Thankfully, all the extra effort paid off in a great time!

Oh my how my kids have grown!!

Here they were in 2010...they have just sprouted!

That means that Jack would have just turned 5. Where did my babies go?!!

Picking pumpkins off the vines are fun, too:
