Pumpkin Patch 2007

I will have the poll going until Friday, so you can still vote in the previous post.

Last year we went to the Roloff's Farm, you know the family farm from Little People Big World
on TLC. We saw everything they had and quickly realized that the tree house, and the pirate ship weren't meant to hold the amount of visitor's they had at the farm. We did have a fun time, but this year we decided to find a place a little closer, and we found Bauman Farms.
This is the place where Reagan went on her field trip with her preschool class.

Lincoln loves animals, if it were up to Lincoln we would have stayed in the stinky barn the whole day.

We found a calf and when it mooed Lincoln's face lit up like Christmas morning, and then Lincoln mooed as if he was talking to the calf, and then the calf came over to us....its like he was Dr. Doolittle.

At this farm they had this zipline swing thing that is a lot of fun, so we got in line and waited our turn. Tim took Lincoln to walk around until it was our turn...it was a popular ride. Just so you get the idea you climb up to this platform that is somewhere between 30 to 50 feet above the ground. Attached to the zipline are swing set seats, you sit down and they let go and weeeeeeeeeeeee. I got a little nervous when the teenage professional who asked me right before Reagan got on, "is she old enough to go by herself?" I said yes, but then wondered why there wasn't any height requirement or age requirement? As you can see she did great and thought is was the best thing ever. I guess its up to the discretion of the parents to decide if their child can go or not.

Mommies turn.....weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Then it was off on the hay ride to the pumpkin patch, we had one simple family rule, you had to be able to pick up the pumpkin you wanted to bring home. We brought home some nice small pumpkins, this rule is mainly to help out Tim, because he is the one who ends up carrying all the pumpkins anyway.
