Pumpkin Patch

This weekend we went to a pumpkin patch for the first time with the boys.
It's something that we've been meaning to do for a couple of years now but it just never happened; so this year I put my foot down and made sure we had the time to go.
The boys had a great time. 
We didn't realize until we arrived but there was an event going on, "Pumpkin Fest", at the patch which made for a bit of extra excitement and a few additional entertainment features that wouldn't normally be around.
We saw animals in the petting zoo, enjoyed some face painting excitement, went on a wagon ride, had a hot dog and wandered through a bunch of pumpkins!

We also got to see a hot pepper eating contest (the winner ate 39!! yuck!), and a pie eating contest. There were games for the kids to play and win prizes (seed spitting and "Toss the Gourd" [into a hollowed out pumpkin]) and a bouncy castle.
The line ups were pretty long as it was busier then usual so we weren't able to do the corn maze, which was a bit of a bummer, but next year for sure!
Do you have your pumpkin for carving yet?
