Let the Halloween Fun Begin!

The real reason we went to the botanical gardens on Saturday (see previous post) was for the pumpkin patch. We got to the patch via this hay ride pulled by these horses. It was fun!
There was one obstacle to the patch, though. You had to get through this hay maze.

Skye probably could have spent all day just playing in there! She had tons of fun running around and chasing after Daddy.
She finally came out, though, and found her pumpkin. (Kids under 12 got a free one.)
It was a little pumpkin, but heavy for our little girl! She loved picking it up, anyway.
Roaming through the patch...
An added bonus was the little petting zoo they had. I think Skye's favorite was this pig...
or maybe the soft, woolly sheep...
or then again, it might have been this pony!
Here we are trying to pose for a picture, but Skye (being her usual self) turned away. What can you do? We had a fun time, though, and this is only the beginning...ha ha ha ha ha!

How fun! I don't know how my kids would have done in a maze. I wish I didn't have to travel to get to a pumpkin patch!

It looks like you guys had fun! I love the pictures of her with animals. Are you going to paint or carve her little pumpkin?
