Pumpkin Fun!

We had such a lovely day today! It started out looking a bit cloudy but luckily it cleared and there was plenty of sunshine for our trip to the pumpkin patch. It was our first time visiting a pumpkin patch since moving to Oregon, you aren't likely to find them in the south! And it was a lot of fun! The farm was gorgeous with not only fields of pumpkins but lovely flower gardens all around. Here are some of the sights to be had...





Even the little one enjoyed the day. He looked so darn cute in his pumpkin hat! I had been planning on making him one since before he was born and I figured a visit to the pumpkin patch was a good excuse to finally do it. I found the free pattern here. It was a pretty easy pattern and looks rather cute if I should say so myself!



Isn't he the cutest? We bought a HUGE pumpkin just for fun, they were cheap! We also got a couple of normal sized pumpkins for carving, as well as some gourds and mini pumpkins for display.  Did I mention gourds? Boy did they have gourds!!

This was just a small sampling of the different types that they had, it was pretty cool to see all the different shapes and colors and sizes these things come in.

After we left the patch we drove through the country side a bit, not totally on purpose, but it was so beautiful we didn't care and it was sooo relaxing! We finally stopped at a restaurant we've been wanting to try for awhile and we will definitley be back... the atmosphere was great and the food was better. So we had wonderful weather and new awesome experiences, can't beat a day like that!
