Tate's Farm | Pumpkin Patch

My sister, brother-in-law, and I recently took our kiddos for their annual visit to the local pumpkin patch at Tate's Farm.  I couldn't help but look back at last year's visit, only to laugh seeing that they were still enjoying the same things -- together at all times -- only "older" now.  Here are some pictures from our fun afternoon...

There wasn't anything that these three did 
apart from each other...so sweet!

Okay, well -- maybe one thing -- 
Sydney did not want to touch a pig with Katie & Austin!

The kids absolutely loved the petting farm area
(but that doesn't at all surprise me, does it you?)

Katie looked down to realize that the goat was
gnawing on her shirt!  She thought that was hilarious!

This is Katie's "Daddy, I really want a bunny" picture :-)

Austin was not as certain as his sister... {grins}

And here's the group "following the leader" again...

And, who would have guessed that Austin
would have loved climbing on those "big tire wheels"!?

Gotta love these faces!  
They must have been really concentrating on this one...

The cotton jump...

And their all-time favorite, the corn crib!
I think they would have stayed here all day long...

Although the sun was harsh and directly in their faces, 
we did attempt a few "group" pictures while at the farm...

They also loved the old red fire engine near the pumpkin patch!
It was opened for the kids to explore, and explore did they ever!

Following the leader, again, through the pumpkin patch...

Their goal...to find the largest pumpkin in the patch...
here's the one they found!

I didn't get a picture of the "big black slide," which Austin still asks to go back to.  But Sydney followed behind Katie and Austin all the way to the top of the slide, about to do it on her own.  (For those of you who know Sydney, she does not like slides).  SO, Aunt Marsha wiggled her way to Sydney and asked to go with her.  We went and she didn't make a whimper, until it was over {grins}.  Needless to say, that's one thing that she no longer followed Katie and Austin to...

We all had a great time, great fall weather, and great fun!  We were all excited to add another year to our memories at Tate's Farm.
