Happy Halloween

We went to Bishops Pumpkin Farm in Wheatland this weekend. We usually go up to Apple Hill but thought we'd try something new this year. It was so much fun, really fun for the kids.
We decided to just get one really big pumpkin for our family this year. We all got on the hayride which drove us out to the pumpkin field.
There were pumpkins everywhere. It was fun hunting for just the right pumpkin. Jack kept tripping over the pumpkins though and so he was crying a majority of the time.
The petting zoo was fun and smelly. As much as I like all the cute little animals in the petting zoo I always feel like I need to take a shower and scrub myself down afterwards. The goats like jumping up on people like they were little dogs. They were really cute though.
The highlight of Jack's day was the ride on the train. We went through a big tunnel, he loved that, I think he would have stayed on that train all day if he could have. All and all the day was a blast. We ate apple pie and nachos for lunch, strolled around, and went on a giant tree house slide. There was a huge corn field maze, we didn't go in though, I kept having thoughts of us walking around in there, the sun beating down on us, stuck for hours with Jack and Stella both crying...That thought was enough to keep us away. Tonight we are going Trick or Treating!!! yippeee candy here we come.

How fun! I'll never forget the first time Britton saw a pumpkin field. He saw all the round orange pumpkins laying in the dirt, his eyes got really big, and he yelled "Balls!"
