Pumpkin Patch

We made a family trip to the pumpkin patch at Dickey Farms a few weeks ago and had so much fun! We weren't sure how much fun a 6 month old would have at a pumpkin patch, he loves being outside so we thought we would give it a try... I thought we would at least get some good pictures for Owen's scrapbook that I have yet to start..Ha! But to our surprise, Owen seemed to really enjoy the pumpkin patch. He spent the whole time patting the pumpkins, trying to eat the pumpkins, and grabbing for the stems.

Owen really liked the huge pumpkins, they were almost as tall as he is and he loved crawling all over them!

DISCLAIMER: Owen is not really standing on his own. Josh would lean him against the pumpkin and move for a few seconds so I could snap a quick pic.

Here's our attempt at family photos. Owen was so worn out from all the pumpkin patch activities that he crashed for the first couple of pictures. It was a beautiful day with great fall scenery so we couldn't resist having a family photo op.

Owen also got to go on his first wagon ride while we were at the pumpkin patch. We weren't sure how well he would do sitting up, so we piled a lot of pumpkins around him and were on our way. The bumpy terrain made for a short and slow wagon ride. Owen was so distracted by all the pumpkins in his wagon...I'm not even sure he realized he was moving.
