Pumpkins, Pumpkins, Everywhere!

Like all of you, we've been very busy around here! With school in full-swing and all of the nightly activities and sports, we had to make sure that we 'carved-out' some time to go to the pumpkin patch! This year, we went to Grandma and Pop-Pop's house (Mark's parents) for a visit and took a trip to the pumpkin farm in their town. 

We had so much fun and the highlight for the girls was the corn maze. This wasn't just any corn was a few miles worth of twists and turns and hundreds of paths! The fun part — and unique idea — was that we were given a punch card and had to find all of the characters from the Wizard of Oz. Once you found someone or something, there was a hole punch there for you to mark it on your card. The girls thought that this was the coolest thing EVER and had me running around like a nut! 

While I was running around, sweatin' bullets, and lost with the girls in the maze, Grandma stayed behind and played with Grady in a corn box — it was literally a big shed filled with hardened corn to play in, instead of sand — which I thought was a really neat idea!
After a few hours of running through the maze, playing in the corn shed, and romping through the hay...we decided it was time to pick our pumpkins and head home.

Don't you just love fall?!?

Lat year, I stubbed my toe on this huge pumpkin. I really squashed it.

That maze sounds amazing. I would love to do something like that, but would probably get very lost!

Love the pictures! I have some of my favorite scrapbook pages throughout the years of the kids at the pumpkin patch. I even used them for Christmas cards one year!

Thanks so much for stopping by my open house; you had asked me who did my design and it was Amy at Designer Blogs. Highly recommend!
