Pumpkin pickin' time!

Friday afternoon I took the kids pumpkin picking at a local farm.
We usually visit Hunter Farms at least twice a year.

Once in the summer for strawberries, and then once again in the fall to pick our pumpkins.
This afternoon, we surprised "the big kids" and picked them up a little early from school.
We ran home quickly and I let "A" and Cor change clothes.
Then it was off to the farm!

The weather could not have been more perfect for pumpkin pickin',
and the kids and I had so much fun!

The kids loved running in and out of this little maze made up of haystacks.
They would race through it to see who could make it to the end the quickest.

Then it was time to jump on a wagon for a hayride.
The wagon took us down to the barn to visit the animals.

"A" and Ri

The kids listened intently as they were taught all about milking "Sissy" the cow!
This cow produces 12 gallons of milk a day...oh my!

They also got to feed a few of the animals in the barn.

Sophie LOVED feeding the goats.

Ri thought these hungry goats were fun too!

Checkin' out the sweet ducks!

After feeding the animals, it was off to "the patch" to find our PERFECT pumpkin!

Sophie thinks she found it!!!

"A" was on the hunt for the perfect pumpkin too!

I love this cute lil' pumpkin!

Hudson found the one he wanted to take home.
He insisted on carrying it all the way to the car too!
Bless his heart!

I got to go home with all five of these sweet little pumpkins!

Ahh...I just HEART FALL!!!
