over the weekend we finally made it to a pumpkin patch--along with the whole rest of the world it seems, and why not, it was a pretty wonderful thing to do this weekend! we chose a farm that was low-key on the activities list but so picturesque it was killer. there was this whole outside plant nursery part that i could have spent a whole bunch more time in, pretending it was my garden on an english countryside estate;) i am really loving plants these days. too bad i can't keep any of them alive for long!
papa woke wilder up saturday morning telling him we were going to go see goats on a farm and for the whole drive (and rest of the day), all we heard from him was how he wanted a goat (at least that's what we think: "Oahna goak" meant;). the animals were his favorite part, of course. he especially loves to see cats these days.
all the pumpkins and gourds were really beautiful, too. sadly, we didn't get to take a tractor ride because it got too late and crowded, but next year! it was a good day.
boiled peanuts. i will never understand the fuss.
and more pumpkins...
i just love this.
how do these pumpkins even exist?
pulling all the gourds out of their bin...
spying on the goats.
some mean geese.
a very suspicious cow.
really more like a viewing barn.
all the plants!
these flowers are just dying to be planted in an english garden. by me.
cute little wagons to pull kiddos and pumpkins around.
um, and a tepee?
we tried them again. still not really a fan.
wilder gives this pumpkin butter on his waffles two thumbs up.
