On Columbus Day, the kids and I were off of work. Brian was unfortunately out of state at work, so he was unable to come spend the day with us.
I had a doctors appointment and a legal appointment, but I wanted to do something fun with the kids as well. We had planned on the zoo, but one of the magazines in the doctor's office was talking about best pumpkin patches in the DFW area. So plans soon changed with the excitement of returning home with a pumpkin.
We went the Blase Family pumpkin patch in Rockwall.
The kids had an opportunity to feed some farm animals. Some hesitated a bit with the longhorn, but eventually everyone made sure to feed her.
And of course the goats too.
There was a haystack maze of sorts which helped the kids get some of their energy out.
We missed the hayrack ride but we did get to inspect the tractor.
There were lots of opportunities for pictures. The problem was getting all 4 children to look at me and smile. And apparently someone introduced my children to the idea of taking "silly face pictures". I'm not amused. They will sit still for a silly face picture, but when I want a nice picture- good luck.
All of the children had an opportunity to take home a small pumpkin from the patch. Even little Colin.
The kids had an amazing time. But you know what was my favorite part?
