Plumper Pumpkin Patch

For my birthday I wanted to go to a pumpkin patch.  I love that once you have children you can do things that you never really lost interest in upon becoming an adult without looking weird.

The weather report for Friday (my actual birthday) didn't look so great, so we went yesterday instead.  It was a balmy 74 degrees--perfect for a day outside.

We'd planned on getting hotdogs and bratwursts at the farm because it was, after all, a birthday outing.  However, we didn't realize that they only offer those on weekends.  So we ate kettle corn and apples for lunch.

Mercy loved the animal barn.  She got to feed an apple to a pig and hay to a calf as well as pet the calves and miniature horses and donkey.

Though she didn't do much in it, the corn jump apparently made a big impression, because she did lots of talking about it...

 There were also three giant slides made of that industrial black plastic pipe stuff.  One was 40 ft. long.  Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of that one.

Then, right before heading home, we took a wagon to the pumpkin patch and picked a pumpkin to keep.
