Pumpkin Fest!

Last week we ventured out to the Pumpkin Fest at Wooden Shoe.  Typically we head to Wooden Shoe in the spring to see the beautiful tulip fields.  But last year was the first ever Pumpkin Fest, and since we're suckers for all things pumpkin and autumny, we were totally there!

There were bales of hay for climbing.

And Gramps came along to keep us company.

Cow trains to ride. 
The same cow train I rode back in April when I was 7 months pregnant with Tay. 
The one that almost sent me into labor ;)

But the cow train is a highlight for the girls, so they hopped right on!

Where y'all goin'?  The Pumpkin Fest, of course!

And we even got a quick photo before the rain started falling :)

Next week it's the Pumpkin Patch! 
{If the weather man is right about the sunshine.  The last four days were supposed to have been dry, ahem.  And it's been sprinkling non-stop.}

So . . . have any of y'all been to the pumpkin patch yet?  Harvest festivals?  Apple pickin'?  I want to hear about it!

I love the new header!!! I lovew how your girls look so similar, but so different at the same time. (Does that makes sense??) :o)

This looks like so much fun!!! I love the little train! We are going to a farm this coming Saturday to dig through the pumpkin patch and walk through the corn maze. I can't wait!!! :o)

How fun! I love the picture of all your girlies together! Ms. Taylor is getting so big! I am going with Grant's class to the Corn Maze tomorrow. They have a cow train that the kiddos love too:)

OK...that last picture is SO good. All of the girls looking right at the camera...priceless. Looks like you guys had a really great day. We went to a local farm for a hay ride & hot dog roasting last weekend. It was a lot of fun. And we did apple picking..always one of our favorites! This weekend we're heading south to our favorite farm store :)

That looks like so much fun!

We went to the pumpkin patch over the weekend. Except that it was just a patch of grass in the middle of town. Took 10 minutes.

I love the new pic of the girls! What a gorgeous family you have!

We went to the pumpkin patch on Friday. It was really sunny, so the kids have their eyes almost closed in all of the pics. LOL!

What a blast. This looks like a great pumpkin trip. I love the cow train and the pumpkin express is so cute. What great photo ops. We did make it to the pumpkin patch and I think our favorite thing was the hay maze.
I love the group photo, your girls are beautiful.
Have a great day!

Aww...love the pics! Nope. We haven't been anywhere. This town has NOTHING. No pumpkin patch. No apple picking opportunities. No NOTHING. Although I heard they are doing something for the kids Halloween weekend. Well, we wont be here. =( I hate my town. It's a big fat dud.

Oh my gosh, I am loving the picture of all 4 girls in your new header!!!!

What a fun place to go and the girls were all smiles, so I'm guessing it was a success.
