Visit to the Pumpkin Patch

Last Wednesday afternoon was a sunny 60 degree day, and Frank took off work a few hours early (cue the angels singing) so we could make our annual visit to Rader Family Farms.   Rader's is so so much fun, but always SO busy; I highly, highly recommend going during the week when there are fewer people.

They have a spot at the entrance set up specifically for photos.

I tried really hard to get some good photos.

Really, really hard.  (Notice Carter trying to run away in both shots...)

The kids just wanted to play, so we did. There were some old favorites like the big slide, jumping pillow, and caterpillar train.

This year there were also some new activities, like gigantic field tiles that you run inside like a hamster wheel

and the runaway hit:  the Duck Races!

Jacob got to sit in a tractor

while Carter played in a grain bin.  (which sounds scary as I am typing it, but it was really safe.)

After that, Carter had a little accident resulting in a huge bruise on his cheekbone.  You can see his cheek starting to turn purple in the picture below.

So we made our way towards the exit, pausing to check out all the awesome pumpkins and gourds.

Minus Carter's nasty bruise, it was a fun afternoon at one of our favorite places!
