Pumpkin Patch

Thank goodness fall is here! Even better, Mother Nature seems to have finally gotten the word by bestowing us with chilly days, suitable for the fall season.

We decided to take advantage of our free Saturday morning and head out to the pumpkin patch. Last year we stumbled upon a patch close to the Louisburg Cider Mill called Powell Pumpkin Patch. It's definitely a low thrill patch (not a lot of extras for the kids), which is part of why we adore it. We don't need much for Jonas to do and both times we have visited they haven't been overwhelmingly busy, so you can take your time strolling through the pumpkin patch choosing just the right one to take home. In our case, we got it narrowed down to five lovlies. They did have a couple of play areas for the kids made out of hay bales, but my finicky guy didn't want anything to do with the scratchy hay (hence, no pics of cute J sitting on a hay bale).
