The Punkin Patch

Yesterday our family went to Chester's Pumpkin Patch. I think we've only missed 1 year there since 2008. And since this was Jack's first time at a pumpkin patch it was an extra special occasion. It was a bit of a dreary day and was chilly but wasn't so cold that we were freezing and miserable. There are quite a few things to do at Chester's. JJ's first request was to ride the ponies. Jack wasn't too sure at first and even fussed a bit but he stayed on through the whole ride. He did have a pretty tight grip on my finger though!

After the pony ride we headed to the barn to see the goats, cows, chickens, llamas, and peacocks.  photo 5f8f0e17-7e96-41e0-ac72-a6d691a1a3b7_zps84c2f670.jpg  photo 9fd464e9-abf4-4cde-a1a5-0a048d238c39_zps003d5d69.jpg  photo 0603c6fa-333c-4383-a864-fe7c7084a133_zps61506bf0.jpg

The hay ride took us to a hay maze and a giant slide. I'm pretty sure these were 2 of JJ's favorite things of the day. And as a photographer it was pretty great for me, too. Lots of cute photo opportunities!

At one point, Mom and JJ ran ahead to hide from us. It was so funny how excited he was to "scare" us when we walked up to them. This boy of mine is always so full of joy and laughter. How I adore him!

We took the hay ride back to the pumpkin patch where we took a couple family photos and picked out our pumpkins to take home. It was such a great family day. I look forward to doing it all again next year!
