The Pumpkin Patch

Last year we went to the pumpkin patch with my parents when Stella was only two weeks old. We picked out two pumpkins and then carved them the night before Wes left for a business trip. Two days later they were completely rotted out and in my rush to get them off the front path I threw them in the garbage can without putting them in a bag first. When Wes got back home he had to clean and bleach the garbage can to get rid of all the mold and pumpkin guts, and the flies that were attracted to that. This year, we decided to go to the pumpkin patch but skip the pumpkins since Stella’s still so young. DSCN1068 DSCN1063

We put a hat on her and popped her in the ergo. She managed to keep the hat on until just before we got into the pumpkin patch, and was quickly out of the ergo to walk around and explore.

We probably could have stayed with those mini pumpkins for an hour, but decided to head into the pumpkin patch itself and meet our friends.DSCN1077DSCN1079 DSCN1081 DSCN1084

Stella enjoyed walking back and forth through the paths. I tried to steer her clear of all the rotting pumpkins (and there were a lot of them) but she still got plenty dirty with all that red dirt. DSCN1086 DSCN1092 DSCN1095

She’s still in transition from two naps to one nap so she was pretty tired by the time we got out there. Don’t let those clouds fool you, it was still ridiculously hot and humid while we were out there. We decided to check out the petting zoo but once we got to it we realized that it might be a little to intense for a one-year old.

So instead we got a family photo, surrounded by many rotting pumpkins.DSCN1098 DSCN1099 DSCN1100On the way out we got a few more pictures  of Stella with the mini pumpkins before heading out. There were a lot more activities for older kids but right now it’s all a little over Stella’s head. But at least it got us out of the house and stretching our legs!
