Pumpkin patch

We went to Old Baker’s Farm on Saturday. We had a lot of fun despite the puddles, mud, and drizzle. Peyton’s new boots are covered in mud, but it was still totally worth it.

Last year we went to the same pumpkin patch with Hillary, Steph and Aimee, but we never made it through the entrance. Paying $10 for a hayride, corn maze, petting zoo, and pumpkin that couldn’t fly back with our friends didn’t seem worth it… especially with a 2 month old in tow. We did stop in front of the corn fields to take pictures though. I’m so glad we did take those pictures because it’s so fun to compare them to this year.

::sigh:: How fast a year comes and goes…

We are loving this age though! I love watching Peyton explore the world around here.

First we stopped for a ride on the little tractors.

Can you see the white specks all over the picture? It’s rain, but just little baby rain, not enough to ruin our fun.

Then we stopped to pet the horses, though i think this one is a mule.

Then we headed to the barn to pet some bunnies, and chickens… or so we thought. Peyton was not a fan. Is it weird that I think it’s great that Peyton doesn’t like to touch or have animals touch her? ha.

The geese were so loud, and made Peyton cry. I don’t blame her for being freaked out, geese are nuts and will jack your food in the park.

Can you tell how much she loved the pig? Ha. She humored us though, and made the sound that the pig made when we asked her.

Waiting for the hay ride.

A perfect little set up to take pictures while you wait for the hayride. Too bad she wouldn’t look at me. There were too many people for me to jump around acting like a fool.

This is probably my favorite picture from the day. I love them.

A real patch.

Such a good daddy, wiping of the dirt.

Peyton doesn’t approve, she still sees mud on her hands. ha.

IMG_3075

I bet you all wish you could have sloshed through this.

IMG_3078

So proud that she took her clip out of her hair.

Next stop was climbing a huge haystack.

This farm was seriously amazing. There were so many great places to take pictures. It’s so hard for me to balance enjoying the time with my family, and trying to have a photo shoot. I never got the picture I was hoping to get in front of this barn. There’s always next year…

Another look at the horses.

A horse swing that was made out of a tire, so cool!

IMG_3121

Doesn’t she look so bored?

IMG_3122

Apparently she was having a lot of fun…let it out…

IMG_3134

Look at that lip.

IMG_3135

All is right in the world again when water is involved.

IMG_3137

So freaking cute! They had just finished bottle feeding the calves. Do you see the milk on his snout?

IMG_3143

The dog took care of cleaning the milk off their faces.

On our way out we stopped at the little tractors again.

Then we stopped at the big tractor.

Lastly, a water break before getting in the car.

  1. great pictures! how fun! we haven’t gone to the pumpkin patch yet this year but i think we will next week. that one looks like a lot of fun!

  2. She looks adorable as usual, and I love the one with her tongue sticking out. I love the family picture of you three this year, and also, I love the new header for the blog. It makes me laugh.

    Also, I love that you are her are both wearing the same outfits you were going to wear when I was out there! Sad that it’s already been a week since I left. 😦

    • I knew you would appreciate our outfits, Krista. Peyton is wearing different jeans and shoes though. That top screams, “pumpkin patch farm”.

  3. Love the pictures. I also love the ones of Cory and Peyton on the ride. Looks like some good times!

  4. i love the one where she is falling off the pumpkin, before she has the dirt on her hands, and the one where she is sticking her tongue out, and i love her jeans in the boots. so cute. and mostly i love that she hates touching the animals, i was scared of geese too as a child/adult. those birds is nasty.

    • They sure is, and they definitely don’t bring tears of joy, those be tears of fear.
