Jumping on the Bandwagon (Or at Least, the Hayride)

The blogosphere has been overwhelmingly assaulted with pictures of Halloween festivities, and so I figured it was time to add my two-cents worth.  I do not have a cute tutorial for making fabulous wall decorations with crows and skulls and vinyl ghosts (Jason will tell you, we have absolutely no Halloween decorations...gasp!).  Our decorating is limited to placing a few pumpkins on the porch.  Granted, what Jason does to those pumpkins is nothing short of amazing, as you can  see here.

Normally the majority of our pumpkins come from our garden, but we had to rely wholly on the local pumpkin patch for produce this year. (Darn you, squash bugs!)   As it turned out, the local pumpkin patch has expanded and now offers more allergy-inducing amenities than ever before!  Now there is a petting zoo pen, a corn box, hayrides, and mazes and towers of hay bales.  Jason and Spencer were in hay fever heaven!

We went with extended family and had dinner at Two Jack's Pizza afterward with everyone. It really is an enjoyable tradition, and just one more reason why I love fall so much. So without further ado, here are the photos:

Sweet! Such fun photos! I recognize that place. We've never been there because I didn't think there was anything to do besides picking out a pumpkin. But now I know the truth about it!!!

We did the exact same thing last monday night. Took the sneezy, bumpy hay ride, marveled over the kangaroo in the petting zoo, and brought home corn in David's diaper. Also got us some great pumpkins. Such a fun place!

It really is so much fun! I love how they amped up the pumpkin patch experience this year with all the new fun things!
