Pumpkin patch (second verse, same as the first, a little bit louder...)

Last weekend we went to Hill Ridge Farm for some October pumpkin patch fun with a bunch of friends and Oma (who is graciously here for 2 weeks to help as Will tracks out and Nate studies feverishly for the professional engineering exam). It was a bit warm out (where is autumn???) so Will had a tough time, though we did our best to keep him cool and entertained. There were certainly more people there on the weekend than were there during the week when we went with Will's class!! Matt slept almost the whole time, so the photos we took are definitely Luke-centric. Thats ok, Luke hasn't had his own blog post in a while...

Luke and Oma feed some seriously over-fed goats and sheep.

Luke and Tyler scoping out chicks in the hay jump... they start so young these days.

The literal response to "Luke, show me your pumpkin!" I guess 3 year olds don't understand enough about unspoken language to know that those words actually mean "Luke, smile, show me your face, and hold your pumpkin at an appropriate height so that I can get a photo of both!"

Perhaps Luke's favorite part of the whole afternoon... washing his hands outside of the bathroom and getting to play with the extremely fast hand dryer!

Luke's class heads to the pumpkin patch (a different one) just a couple days before Halloween. Definitely stop by our house on Halloween... we're gonna have like 15 jack-0-lanterns after all these trips to the pumpkin patch! Maybe I should learn to make completely-from-scratch pumpkin pie instead?

It looks like you guys had fun too. We were there 10:30 to 1:30 - we must have just missed crossing paths.
By the way, you can make pumpkin muffins, cupcakes, and bread too. Lots and lots with 15 pumpkins. : )
