Pumpkin Patch 2008

I love the fall!! Cooler weather, beautiful leaves, caramel and spice smells and pumpkins everywhere! One of our favorite things to do in the fall is head to a pumpkin patch. This year we headed down to MS again and spent a fun-filled morning at Cedar Hill Farms.

We prepped Luke the night before by telling him we were going for a hayride to find pumpkins and he was SO excited! However, once we got off the wagon and went to the middle of the pumpkin patch, Luke was obsessed with looking for squash!! One of his dear little friends gave him a book called The Ugly Pumpkin. Turns out, at the end of the book, the pumpkin discovers he was a squash all along and exclaims, "Oh my gosh! I'm a squash!" Luke thinks the book is awesome and now has a HUGE interest in squash. So, back to the pumpkin patch---he's running along finding "squash" and squealing with delight. Honestly, we have no idea the difference between a gourd and a squash, so we just called them all squash! He how has 3 of his own and carries them all around the house calling them his toys. Yep---not looking forward to when his toys have to disappear because they rot! Yikes. As for Charlie--he was all smiles--as usual. We bundled him up since it was a little windy, but he was a trooper! I can't wait to see what his reactions to pumpkins are.

Anyway, the day was a blast---including the one hour wait for 1 hot dog and the 20 minute delay in leaving due to us being stuck in the mud. We are big fans of Cedar Hill farms. If you live in the area and didn't go this year, make plans to head there next fall!

Okay, so Luke was excited about the pumpkins too!
