Thistledown Pumpkin Patch 2011

We went to Thistledown Farm for our annual family pumpkin patch visit. The kids are getting bigger, but they are still willing to sit on the pumpkins for our traditional picture.
We were supposed to meet Grandma and Grandpa Bevans to ride the wagon out to the pumpkin patch, but they were a bit late, so the kids played in the hay maze while we waited.
This pose of Leilani's just looked funny to me with her feet up like that.
The kids had a good time playing while we waited. They liked being "eaten" by the monster as the went down the slide.
We rode on an open wagon this year instead of the covered wagon we have ridden in years past.
Grandma and Grandpa made it in time to ride with us...
They brought Jeff's kids with them too. The boys had a good time together. Although, I have decided that if you get a group of boys together, you are just asking for all sorts of things that girls wouldn't do. For instance, what girl has ever wanted to go to the bathroom in a field of pumpkins?! I guess boys want to mark their territory? :)

The kids picked bigger pumpkins this year.
Benjamin couldn't even carry his own pumpkin, and Leilani was having a hard time too!
While the pumpkins were being weighed and paid for, I took the kids to the corn maze. They did it pretty fast this year, runnning through it in under 10 minutes I would guess.

We had a good time as always. It was nice weather this year too! It is getting harder and harder to fit this trip into our schedule each year, but we are always glad we do it!
