Autumn Fun

So last Thursday Keith, Erin, the kids, and I made the trip up to Flower Mound to the Pumpkin Patch. We have never taken the kids to one before and it has been years since any of us grownups had been to one. We heard it was a lot of fun so we checked the Internet for directions and off we went. When we got up there we made sure to go in the right entrance and it led us to a Photo Op wonderland. The first thing we did was take pictures with all of the fun character cutouts they had.

Here are two of my favorites. They had a million of these wooden characters. You could tell they make new ones every year because some of them were new, like these Backyardigans ones, and other had seen better days like the Pocahontas ones. We all had a good time seeing who we could find in the sea of cartoons.
We only stayed for a little while but we all had a fun time. There was a tiny hay maze, a hay ride, bounce houses, the pumpkins (of course), and a bunch of little kid sized buildings for the kids to play in. Of course the most important part of the pumkin patch was the pictures! And boy did we take pictures. Here are a few of the best ones. We are going to have to go back next year, it isn't often you find something that is that fun and free!

On the hayride.


Talking to Ryan


I will post more pictures when I can, but our old computer that I upload the images to is slooooow because we have a wireless card on there and of course we couldn't get the super fast one so it doesn't hold the signla very well. So it consistently kicks me off the internet.

What adorable pictures and what a fun place! The kids looked like they were having fun except no smile on Brady. How come no pictures of you or Erin?

Shannon said...

I have a few of me and I will post those when I can, but we completley forgot to get pics of Erin! She was the photographer for the trip, you can see her shadow in some of the pictures though! LOL

I looove that place. It is very nice and cheap. Free everything and cheap food. Cute pics!

Kelli said...

Cute pictures. I love the hayride and the jail ones. I'm glad ya'll had fun.

Danielle said...

Looks like you had fun. Jake loved looking at the picture of Natalie and Brady with the pumpkins.

Did you get any kettle corn while you were there? YUM! It's a cool pumpkin patch, but who would have thought SO many people would want to go to a pumpkin patch? It was so crazy the day we were there, but still fun!

Julie said...

That looks like so much fun! We ran out of time to go this year but I will definately have to make time to go next year. All the pictures are adorable!

Ashley said...

So many people go because it's FREE! As soon as some people hear the word free, it's like a stampede.

Shannon said...

Yeah, luckuly it wasn't too bad because we went on a Thurday afternoon, but it was still pretty crowded! You just can't beat free!

Melanie said...

Did you say free? I am jealous. We went up to Green Bluff and I probably spent close to $100. Granted I had 5 kids with me, but still. They charged us 6.50 for each child to go through the corn maze. What a rip off! Your children are adorable by the way. Take care!!!!
