Pumpkin Patch Visit

We made a visit to a Pumpkin Patch this year again. We tried a different one...same crap, different place. They had a pumpkins, a jumpy castle, hayride, farm animals, face painting, etc. It was the perfect amount of entertainment for one morning with 3 preschoolers. Alice, Drew, and Jake joined us, and so did some friends of mine from work. We had a fun time!

After nearly 2 million attempts to get a picture with all 3 of them sitting on pumpkins, looking at the camera and smiling, we gave up. This was the best we could do. Screw it. I had already had a long morning by the time we got there because I have to beg Abby to wear gender appropriate clothing. I was thrilled when after nearly an hour of negotiations, she wore this dress. Never mind that I had a dress like Marie's but in black and white so they would coordinate, but she wouldn't have any part of that. Again, screw it.

They loved riding behind the tractor. Will wanted to drive the tractor, but he settled for taking in the scenery. Then, he proceeded to drown us in his questions the whole time. Who that is driving the tractor? Does a farmer drive a tractor? Can I drive a tractor when I get a little bit bigger? Does this tractor go around the farm? Does this tractor pick up pumpkins?
