perfect day for a pumpkin patch!

we had a very busy weekend, between a visit from meme, a duck game, spending the night in salem and dinner with grams...but the highlight of the weekend for me was our family visit to the pumpkin patch on sauvie island. aa and i had been looking forward to taking the boy to his first pumpkin patch and sunday was THE perfect day! it was sunny and warm without a cloud in sight! since my mom was in town...we all decided to go - my mom, three sisters, two dads, our six kids and one exchange student.

kellen wasn't so sure about the hay ride and all in all, i can't say that he was overy impressed with the whole experience (although he did have some fun pounding on a pumpkin in the field!). while he may not have gotten a lot out of the visit this year, we are excited about making this a family tradition...there is nothing better than a beautiful, fall day, a hay ride, fresh corn on the cob, the smell of kettle corn in the air and going home with the perfect pumpkin and a bag full of farm fresh produce! here are some pics from our day:

SO damn cute! I love the black and white one with the touch of color. What is kellen going to be for Halloween?

The Pumpkin Patch was a definite Highlight to my trip, too bad you missed the Voodoo Doughnut visit on the way. Although, I doubt the lad would have been overly impressed with that either. I had a FANTASTIC long weekend. Love mom!!
