My First Pumpkin Patch

 Yes, today I had my very own first time experience at a 'pumpkin patch'.  I don't know why I have never been to one before and I don't know why I am just now getting around to one.  However, I went today with the kiddos.  

It was a bit hectic if you ask me.  It probably wasn't the best idea to go on a weekend, but then again there are pros and cons to going and not going on the weekend.  Pro is that you have activities there for the kids (snow cones, music, bounce house, pumpkin painting etc).  However, it is nearly impossible to get a clear picture of the kids without people in the background of your photos and all of the distractions (that would be the con).  Hunter had a great time playing with the other kids.  Morgan on the other hand was not happy that mommy woke her up from her nap to take her to this place of craziness.  

At first I gave up with trying to take pictures and said that I would just come back during the week.  So I walked around, let Hunter play and tried to keep Morgan from getting too fussy.  I attempted a couple of times putting Morgan down near some pumpkins for pictures, but all she wanted to do was eat the pumpkins, fuss about the grass she was sitting on and not look up at the camera at any cost.

I think I got enough cute shots though considering and decided this will do without having to go back during the week.  It was our first experience and we will know how to better prepare ourselves next year.  Take a look at the pics (click on collage to zoom).
