The Beginning of Pumpkin Madness

This weekend marked the start of pumpkin patch season in this area which also marks the start of Peanut's Pumpkin Patch Madness Season.  So we attended the preview weekend at one of the bigger (and more expensive) pumpkin patches in the area.  It had everything that Peanut looks for in the perfect pumpkin patch.  First, there were tractors that he could sit on and pretend to ride (for hours), there were massive and not so massive slides, free and plentiful apples, pretend horses, trains, and pirate ships to play on, more tractors and his favorite, a million pumpkins to choose from.

The weather was a little overcast and fall-like and our cast of characters were off.  It is is always interesting to be able to compare and contrast events over the years and while it is always hard to keep track of 3 kids in a massive amusement area with a ton of other people, this year marked another "easier" than before event.  At one point all 3 kids were running up a hill, going down the huge slide and running back up and Papa Bear and I actually sat next to each other (did you see that verb? sat!!) and chatted while we watched the kids play.  We didn't have to have anyone on our laps for the slides nor did we have to help anyone climb the massive hills to get back up. 

This is what 3 1/2 hours at the first pumpkin patch of the season looked like:

And this is what it looked like about 3 minutes after we drove off of the property:
