Pumpkin Patch

We had such a fun time at the pumpkin patch! We went to Green Level Gourd Pumpkin Patch last Friday afternoon and had the place basically to ourselves! They had chickens, pigs, donkeys, goats, a horse, lots of things for Ellie to play with/on, and pumpkins of course!

First we picked out a pumpkin, and then decorated it. Ellie got to choose her pumpkin.We then looked at all the animals (not going to post the pics of the animals, just of us).

Then we played in the spider tunnel, and mom & dad played cornhole against each other (I won, of course).

Then to prepare for the donkey ride (which we saved for one of the last things to do to make sure she had warmed up to the place), we rode some practice horses.

Mom & dad goofed off with the camera a little while Ellie played (just one of many, didn't want to bore you).

Finally it was time for the donkey ride. I had the camera in the wrong setting, so didn't get any good pictures (all blurred). Not like I really missed any shots though, because Ellie did not want to touch that donkey! It was pretty funny, but she definitely wouldn't get on donkey Sally. So sad...

We finished our time by going through the teensy corn maze. It was just Ellie's size!
So much fun you get to have with kids! We would've never done this without her in our life :)
