Went to the Pumpkin Patch...

With Nana and Poppy in town this weekend we had to make our annual Pumpkin Patch trip. This is Nana and Poppy (my parents) with Lexi.
Here is my hubby, you all have never met him. Blog friends meet Alan. The picture is myself, Lexi and Alan for any newbies to the blog.
There are a bunch of neat photo places all throughout the patch.

Lexi is shooting corn cobs trying to hit the target.
This is Lexi and Nana racing the ducks in the water trough. Lexi was having a blast pumping that handle, racing her duck. We couldn't hardly get her away from there.
Here is Alan posing with Mr. Scarecrow.
I have a lot more pictures to come. Stop back by tomorrow for more.

Your folks look like loving parents/grandparents, and the pumpkin patch is a delight to visit.

You have a lovely family! And what a neat place to go! The pumpkin Patch here has a maze and a few small shops, and a hayride. But no fun games like that one!

I love "meeting your family." I know your parents must have had such a fun day at the patch with you--the duck races look pretty intense! It looks like there's lot to do there besides picking out pumpkins!

Great pictures I want to go to the pumpkin patch but I don't know if I can talk my family into it. You know when your a cool teenager its boring to look at pumpkins. I may just have to drag them anyway!

Morning Darlene-You have a great family. Don't you just love when everyone can get together and do something fun? Looks like it was perfect weather for it too.

HeathahLee said...

Okay, between you and Susie, you have officially made me want to head to a pumpkin patch! I guess we need to for Kiddo's sake...we're just so busy I don't know when we'll go! I might have to drag some of my homeschool buddies with me and make it a "field trip." Yeah, that's it!

Tammy said...

We're heading to one of the pumpkin patches today, too!

Your hubby is such a good sport to let you take pictures...mine gives me "the look" if I even aim the camera his way! I love that picture of Lexi sitting on the hay bale. What a darling photo!

I love going to the pumpkin patch every year too. There is something so small town about them. Everyone seems happy and has fun.

I take my great niece every year and take photos too. Nothing says Fall like pumpkins!

Hi Darlene~
Those pictures are great! You make a sweet family! I think that is so neat that your parents could go to the pumpkin patch with you. :) It looks like you had a fun time! :)

I hope your week is going well! :)

Ashlie said...

Nice to meet you, Alan!

I was so excited to see that Lexi calls her grandpa "Poppy!" That's what my sister and I called our grandpas, who have both gone to be with the Lord now. I'm so glad someone else uses that sweet name. How did it come about in your family?
