The Great Pumpkin Patch

Yesterday we visited our local Pumpkin Patch. I took my son, youngest Niece and our two foreign exchange students from China. The sun was out but it was pretty windy and chilly, however that didn't stop us from having fun.

Colin and Taylor both picked out a pumpkin to carve. We had lots to chose from as you can see.

Vincent was quite a gentleman and wanted to pull the heavy wagon. I found out in China they eat a lot of pumpkin (all year) but they don't decorate with them at Halloween like we Americans do.

Some of the 2009 Pumpkin King and Queens.

And the other King and Queen. Vincent and Angela both thought this was pretty funny, to have a Pumpkin King and Queen.

Colin being the other man pulled the wagon of orange.

One of the all time favorites at The Patch is the hay maze. As Colin has gotten older he can find his way through the maze pretty quick. Not to mention, he can climb the maze to find his way out (which he is not supposed to do so I had to holler at him). Vincent and Angela found their way through it too.
These furry fellers were funny to watch. Colin and Taylor were trying to see if they would spit on them (not sure why, sounds a bit gross to me). Instead they just starred at Colin and Taylor like they were two wild kids making crazy faces, because they were! Notice the sign posted, YO....animals may bite!

We took lots of pictures of Vincent and Angela so they could send them home to their parents. Both are students at our University studying for their Master. Neither one of them have been to a pumpkin patch and they definitely have not seen so many pumpkins all together at one time in their lives. :)

Our trip to The Great Pumpkin Patch with our new friends was a wonderful time. Hopefully we gave them some memories they will remember for a very long time. We have other trips planned during the upcoming holidays, I'm sure we can show them some other crazy things Americans do.

Happy Spooktacular Weekend!
