The Pumpkin Patch Post
So I realize this is probably the 45,087th post you've read about people going to the pumpkin patch, but you should read this one cause it has cute babies in it.
I don't really understand what is going on with pumpkin "patches" these days. It seems like every pumpkin patch I've seen over the last few years just has pumpkins that are cut from their vines and toted to a large area for you to search through. I don't know about you, but I prefer tromping out into the muddy fields and cutting the pumpkin off the vine like I did when I was little. I am determined to find one of these pumpkin patches for Bennett to visit next year!
Since we live in a high-rise downtown, we don't have anywhere to put pumpkins so we just ended up getting this cute little guy (thanks Cliffs!) who's home is on our kitchen counter:
We went the weekend before last and it couldn't have been a more perfect fall day:
Bennett with his lady friends Lucy and Avery:
Last year Bennett absolutely hated the pumpkin patch. It was the first time he had really been out in the sun plus he was trying to sleep so he was super fussy the whole time.
Case in point:
Speaking of last year, look at how teeny he was:
Doubled in size:
(that would be crazy if adults did this)
Chris being manly and wheelbarrowing (is that a word? I just made it one)
extremely heavy babies:
This baby cow was super cute but I think it was a little too relaxed and it didn't really feel like cleaning it's hindquarters, or getting up to "go" for that matter:
(if you enlarge the picture you can see that Bennett is pointing and the expression on his face says "sick mom I can't believe you're makingme take a picture with it)
This farm also had goats, chickens, cute baby chicks you could hold and these sweet baby piglets:
oh the things we make our babies do:
If you live in Portland and know of a real pumpkin patch let me know in the comments!
P.S. this is what the beginning of fall looks like from our living room window:
