Pumpkin Patch pics - proceed at your own risk {very pic heavy!}

{Paige, in front of a shed they decorated to look rustic. I loved it so much,
I decided to do a design by fire technique on it to punch up the contrast}

We spent Sunday afternoon at Sweetberry Farm in Marble Falls. They have a pumpkin patch each year and we thought it would be fun to take the kids and see what all the fuss was about. We had a great time and the kids really enjoyed the hayride, feeding the animals, going through the kids maze, homemade ice cream and, of course, picking out pumpkins!

what should we do first?

ah, let's pose with everyone who's willing...

yup, everyone likes a sullen scarecrow. thumbs up, kiddo!

that's more like it! give it some spunk!!

Paige feeds her first kid. Ok, not including Drew.

Neil, Jonathan and Paige wait for the hayride.

Ashley feeds the goat.

And is immediately grossed out because *that* animal is licking her hand!

Paige feeds another kid.

Then the kid gets a little greedy, lunging for more.

Jonathan's turn to feed the kid!

I couldn't help posting this photo since those goats are all but saying
'enough with the pleasantries, give us some food ALREADY!!'

Now, it's his turn to be grossed out!!!

Paige and Jonathan are the first portrait victims.

I love this picture of Jonathan!

First, the girls cooperate.

Now the boys cooperate!

Paige and the tractor.

Paige is making sure those tiny pumpkins are 'OK' to sell.

Ashley and Drew look over this one very carefully.

Paige sitting next to a new friend, Mr. Pumpkin. Yeah, I'm just that original. ;)
