The Pumpkins Keep Coming!

This year’s pumpkin patch visit found us at Hall’s Pumpkin Farm in Grapevine. It’s my sister-in-law’s favorite so far, so we wanted to be sure to try it out. What a fun time we had! The trip started a little rough, with raindrops landing on our windshield as soon as we pulled into the parking lot. Yikes. We quickly sought shelter near some gourds for sale and hung out the fam a while. Good news? The short, quick rain scared off much of the crowd!


When the wild wind and brief rain offered a reprieve, we escaped and headed for the animals. Who knew how much time we’d have before more crazy weather?! (Turns out, the rest of the evening was lovely)


Bridget LOVES these photo op spots right now, so I take full advantage:


The animals were still seeking cover, so we talked to them from afar:

She was way into this Hay House…pretty sure its because she loves through handfuls of debris into the air. Sigh.

Many an adorable family pic was taken at this stop, I’m sure! If only my photo subject would comply, I too could enjoy such a pic. Alas.

Then it was time for the cows. They were a HOOT!




Love this shot! Such a brave girl!


Getting silly at the end now, people…the time to bail is drawing nigh!


A little bit more time for craziness in the play area:


Had I seen the sign that 3 and under enter for free, I would have probably given it a try! Oh well…next year!


Though a meltdown occurred moments before this shot, we were still smiles upon our exit. Such a nice night with family and a fun chance to celebrate Mommy’s favorite season of the year. Ah, Fall. Love ya!
