The Pumpkin Patch
This weekend we went to the pumpkin patch festival in Germantown with our friends Erika, Tommy and Ben. It was a lot of fun. Especially for the kids.
There is a hayride that takes you out to field where you can "pick" your own pumpkins. This great in theory, but we found with two toddlers and one of us pregnant. It's hard to carry very many pumpkins back with you!
There were also all kinds of animals to see: Bunnies, pigs, goats, turkeys, chickens. The turkey scared Gigi.
And Pony rides! Not normally my thing but these ponies looked well cared for so I figured it was ok. Gigi and Ben both liked the ponies.
It was chilly and windy and we had done a lot but we hadn't gone down the slide yet. So we waited in line and Gigi and I went down the slide. She wasn't so thrilled about the idea when it was our turn to go, but she liked it on the way down.
It was a good weekend. No work on the kitchen, which was a ncie break. I haven't posted the final pictures yet because, well it's not finished. Almost, just a little more paint. Then I will get them up here for everyone to see.
