We visited a local pumpkin patch with Grandma and Grandpa. It was the first time the Sugar Snaps really understood that we were getting pumpkins for Halloween. It was so much fun to see them enjoy the sights and sounds of the pumpkin patch.
They crawled into a large jack-o-lantern and touched the hay.
They compared large pumpkins
to small pumpkins
and enjoyed seeing the scarecrow driving the tractor.
Ryder loved petting the goats and sheep in the petting zoo.
Capri was not sure which car to pick
and then opted to drive the taxi
while Xayden enjoyed the beetle car.
The cars were one of the surprise hits of the pumpkin patch.
Grandma and Grandpa enjoyed watching them ride around.
Finally, it was time to pick some pumpkins and head home.
Have you been to the pumpkin patch this year? When did your children begin to understand that Halloween was approaching? I’d love to hear from you. As always, comments are welcome.
