Pumpking Picking

Even though October is almost over, the pumpkin picking continues. Our first adventure in a pumpkin patch this year occurred in the middle of the month, at the Dixie Corn Maze. On the way out there, we stopped in a nearby cotton field so that Toddler could see how cotton grows.
Once we arrived, he had fun with some crafts and then the outdoor fun began.

There were chickens to talk to,
pig races (which were hysterical, by the way)
and a pony to ride.
There was even a cow train!!  How cool is that!
While the real pony was fun, I think he had just as much (if not more) fun riding the sawhorse and roping the cow.
Everyone thought that was pretty fun!
We rode out to the pumpkin fields to pick out the perfect pumpkin.
As it turns out ToddlerD is quite picky about his pumpkins. "It needs to be little so I can carry it." "It needs to be smooth." "It needs to be all orange; no yellow or green on it."
And did I mention how tricky it is to walk in a pumpkin patch!

There was a beautiful field of zinnias, too, that we were allowed to cut flowers from. I loved that!
(Hay is kind of prickly on bare legs.)

Last, but certainly not least, was the corn maze itself! We wandered through the trails with ToddlerD leading the way most of the time---until it was time to actually find our way out, that is. We let Papaw take over at that point.
What a fun Sunday afternoon!
