Fun at the Pumpkin Patch

Ahhh, the cliche pumpkin patch post. With lots and lots of pictures. 
I know you've been on the edge of your seat waiting for here ya go! You're welcome ;)

This was actually our third attempt at a trip to the pumpkin patch. We were going to go last Sunday, but it rained all day. Then, we tried Tuesday afternoon....there ended up being a tornado watch. Finally, on Friday, the weather was gorgeous, Trav was home from work early and all of the stars finally aligned for us to go to the pumpkin patch!

We went to Hall Family Farm, which is also where Ella and I picked strawberries (well, actually we bought a pint of already picked ones...minor details) back in May. They had tons of fun activities for older kids, as well as pumpkins to pick (duh) and hay rides (of course)! 

The sun was a little too bright for somebody... 

...and she also wasn't too sure of all these round, orange things on the ground. She just kept clapping her hands, she didn't know what to do! Bless. 

Please note that my husband is standing right next to the wagon, just outside of this picture. It's safer than it looks, promise!

In typical Ella form, of course she would try to climb out of the wagon! 

We managed to pick out a 30 pound pumpkin to scoop out and put Ella in. Stay tuned for those pics!

After exploring the pumpkins a little more...

...we went on a hay ride!

As usual, Ella was unsure about it. 

Still super fun though. Such a great family afternoon!! Yay for fall! 


  1. How cute!! Ella is so talented on top of that pumpkin. :)

  2. Ella looks super cute with all of the pumpkins and has great balance! Can't wait to see pictures of her in the pumpkin!
