Halloween Part 1: Pumpkin Patch

I didn't think it could get much cuter than last year's trip to the pumpkin patch, but I was wrong (And I never admit that, just ask my husband!).  This year, we hit up Phillips Farms in Cary with the Munns and our besties, and we had a blast!  


There were so many things to do, it was the perfect spot to take the kids.  The only thing we didn't get to do that I wanted to do was ride the little train that looked like a cow, but by the time I remembered it was there we had already stayed long past nap time and the line was too long.  Maybe next year!  Anyway, if you live in the Raleigh area and have kids (Or even if you don't, there's still plenty to do and I actually think it would make a great place for a date), I would highly recommend checking this place out!

It's late and I'm tired so I'm going to attempt to let the photos do most of the talking...we'll see how that goes.

There was a gigantic John Deere, which Lills thought her PawPaw might appreciate.
Also, there were baby goats!  You could pay a quarter or something to feed them.  Unfortunately, I didn't get any good photos of the actual feeding, but Lilly loved them.

"Tractor racing" with Daddy

Duck races (sorry you can't actually see the rubber duckies!)

This slide was enormous.  They would not let Dan accompany Lilly down the slide and it was HUGE so I wasn't sure how she'd like it, but she LOVED it and went back multiple times.  In fact, she briefly got upset when we moved onto the next activity.

There was lots of playing...

...and also quite a few hugs that were maybe a little unwanted.  Ha!  Poor Jack and Hadley!

Sweet Hadley.  Check out those boots, I die!

L had a blast chasing her shadow.

We took a hayride to the pumpkin patch where we got to pick our very own smallest-pumpkin-ever straight from the vine!

I love, love, LOVE how much these two love their girls.

The BEST Daddies!

Lilly had a blast in the pumpkin patch.  She just kept walking around picking up pumpkins and putting them back down.  I like to think she was testing them all until she found the perfect one to bring home!

The winning pumpkin.

It would later be painted...more to come on that in another post.

More pumpkin testing...

Sweet Hadley, part 2!

Mommy's girl.

Photo shoot in the pumpkin patch (with lots of fake cheesin' I might add!).


Besties and babies (2 each, even though Steph is a skinny bia and BB2.0 looks like he ate Baby Stephen!).

There was a gigantic sandbox full of corn, and I'm pretty sure L would have spent the entire day in there if we let her.  I was very surprised when we got home to find that there wasn't any corn in her diaper.  Shocked, actually.

Gigantic bouncy pillow.  Hands down L's favorite part of the day.  I was worried she would freak out because she kept falling while all of the big kids were jumping, but she just giggled and squealed and giggled some more.  It was so cute!


Daddy's girls!
We topped off our trip with some delicious kettle corn before heading home for the shortest nap ever.  We had so much fun, and I hope we get to go back next year!  I'll try to do a "part 2" tomorrow night of all of the other Halloween activities that occurred this year.  At the rate I'm going, if I can wrap up Halloween posts prior to Thanksgiving, it will be a miracle!

Tomorrow is Thursday, wahoo!
