the BIG orange pumpkin patch

We took the family up to The Big Orange Pumpkin Patch this weekend! It’s always extra fun when we get to bring daddy along with us since we normally do lots of things like this during the weekday. Cole has been dying to see “aminals” lately so we thought this would be the perfect outing! The entire drive up to the farm he kept telling us that he was going to pet the elephant and the zebra….hmmm, good thing he wasn’t too disappointed when we got there and all that was around was a few cows, some goats, sheep and chickens.IMG_8023 copy nonetheless he was so excited to get to feed the animals! The cow was a little intimidating for him so he stuck to the smaller animals.IMG_7920 copy I couldn’t believe that he let the goats eat out of his hand!! He thought it was hilarious!IMG_7969 copyIMG_7990 copy 2IMG_7927 copy Next up on the days activities was the hay ride! Cole doesn’t do too well in the patience department so waiting in line was a little slow for him. He kept wanting to go back and see the animals again, but when he saw that we were going to ride in the back of a tractor he forgot all about those animals!    IMG_7938IMG_7957 copy Cole hung out in dad’s lap the entire ride since it was so crowded. We rode out around a little lake and they had giant bales of hay painted as different animals. He thought that was fun and loved shouting out which animal it was.

At least he will oblige me and hold on to his little brother. He is giving me the look of “ok, hurry up and take the picture so I can get back to the animals” look.IMG_8000 copyIMG_8003 copy IMG_8006 copy   Our best attempt at a family picture.IMG_8013 copyIMG_8021 copy

We found a quiet little place to sit down and eat some lunch while Cole ran around. It was the perfect day to go to the pumpkin patch…too bad the rest of Dallas had the same idea.
