A Little Shout Out for the Pumpkin Patch

I ♥ LOVE the Pumpkin Patch.
Have I mentioned that before?
Visiting the Pumpkin Patch is one of my favorite yearly traditions.
What fun we have tromping through the grounds,
gazing at the beautiful colors of leaves on the trees,
getting lost in the hay maze,
swinging, sliding, and admiring the animals,
sipping on cider {mmmmm, cider},
and, most importantly, picking our pumpkins!
This year was no disappointment.
We had a fabulous trip to Bauman Farms on Monday.
Our first stop was checking out some mighty BIG Pumpkins!

What is it about cornstalks that just scream FALL?
I think they're beautiful.

My little Apple ;)

Kam's first trip pumpkin pickin'

BOO!

Did we scare ya?

Mmmmm, look at these delicious apples.
Bauman Farms makes the.most.delicious.cider.period.
{We grabbed a few jugs on the way out}

Anyone else have a soft spot for these little guys? Oh, their little grunts and snorts are so cute!

This one was just snoozin' away the entire time.

Are these about the cutest little animals you've ever seen?
{Note to self: Get out of the way! Nothing ruins a cute picture of the littles like mama's big head peekin' over the top!}

And with that, I'll leave you with a little trivia we came across at the farm . . .

1.How many apples does it take to make 1 gallon of cider?

2.How many glasses of milk can a cow produce in one day?

3.What percentage of a pumpkin is water?

4. How many stomachs does a cow have?

5. How long does it take a pumpkin to grow?

Pumpkin patches are the best! Great for fun, for pictures, for memories! I love Kam's little lips and chubby cheeks. That is how Audrey is too!

And by the way, you commented on my blog about missing pregnancy after seeing my photo- TOTALLY AGREE. And the funny part is, I felt pretty miserable that late into pregnancy, but I miss it. Yes, I have the baby bug!

I also love your hair. How do you get the volume and have it be kind of straight still? I have blonde long hair...and lots if it. I am always looking for new things to do with it. :)

Can anyone recommend the best Script Deployment program for a small IT service company like mine? Does anyone use Kaseya.com or GFI.com? How do they compare to these guys I found recently: N-able N-central software remote access
? What is your best take in cost vs performance among those three? I need a good advice please... Thanks in advance!
