Laity Pumpkin Patch

Sometimes everything comes together to make a new and happy memory. Friday the rain stopped for a couple of hours just after school let out. DGS wanted more pumpkins. The Laity Pumpkin Patch is a great pumpkin venue. What could be better.

The Pumpkin Patch has a treed multiple paths area with great large kid size vignettes that match not only the season but also favorite characters.

The little fairy gardens remind me of my blogging friend Brenda who creates them in her garden.

The pumpkin fields invite carful scrutiny of so many sizes, shapes and weights of pumpkins. This part of the afternoon took about 20 minutes and lugging the 'big one' back to the car took two of us, one on each handle of the cloth grocery bag (best carrying solution for us from the field).

When it came to the really 'big ones' it took DGS and a helper to load and move these beauties to the car and then drop them off at Mom's for weekend carving.

Panning for gold, petting the calves, pony, donkey, sheep, goats, rabbits, checking out the turkeys, hens, pigeons, chicks, budgies and more rabbits was also part of the fun. 

Pumpkins came home and were carved for Wednesday's Trick or Treat Visitors. Check these Halloween Pumpkin faces.

  8. oh JOY ... what fun you must have had. I have never been to a pumpkin patch to pick pumpkins. Just 'pick' mine at the grocery store or Walmart. No big adventure, but would love it. Your carved faces are fun.
    Happy days.
