Playing In The Pumpkin Patch

Dad doing the cuting
We decided to do our official first fall activity this past weekend and we went to a farm that had a crazy amount of farmy things to do.  I was amazed at all of the activities that people could come up with that involved things on farms.  From pumpkin sling shots and panning for gems to a corn maze and hill slides (50+ activities to be more precise).  We had sooo much fun.  Of course I took what seemed to be a thousand pictures of Evie, and made out with some really awesome fall shots.

Besides this being our first fall activity, we also picked pumpkins for the first time.  As soon as we went into the pumpkin patch the first thing Evie said was "I need to pick the perfect pumpkin" (emphasis on perfect).  So we looked all around that pumpkin patch to make sure she found her perfect pumpkin.  The perfect pumpkin had to be round and couldn't have ANY dirt on it.  Which do you know how hard it is to find a pumpking that doesn't have ANY dirt on it?  FYI - we were successful and found not one, but two perfect pumpkins.

We also haaadddd to pan for gems.  Evie really enjoyed doing this - but I think mommy and daddy seem to enjoy it maybe just a little bit more, for some reason.  Never panned before this fall but we really dig it.  Hopefully we're sitting on a goldmine that will make our whole family rich.  I know this is doubtful, but I'm still holding out.
