Fun At The Pumpkin Patch

Today was Ben's field trip to Triple B Pumpkin Patch! It was such a beautiful Fall day here in South Western PA. It was in the 60's and very sunny! It was very special because my husband and other son Alex came along too! We all had a great time! Here's the little pumpkin patch where all the kids are given a bag, and are allowed to pick one pumpkin to take home! The adults were allowed too! What fun! It's hard to find that perfect pumpkin! Most kids chose an orange pumpkin....only a kid or two out of the group picked a green one!
And here are even more pumpkins! They had tons and tons! I just love the color orange!

Here is Alex and Ben at a fun little sign! Don't you just love these? I know I do! It was a very rushed day....if we the time, I would have loved to get each of our heads inside this sign! That would have been cute! Oh and they had tons of these signs! Each one was creative and cute! Not very kid friendly though. Toddlers and even bigger kids were too short to stick their heads through the sign...they needed an adult to hold them up from behind (notice my husband's head)! lol Isn't this little white goat precious? I just wanted to take her home with me!
These goats are trained to pull a rope attached to the pulley in order to get treats! I never knew goats were this smart! Poor things....even when the crowds left, they were still trying to pull the rope....I guess they aren't that smart afterall!
Here is Ben and Alex on a huge haystack!
They had this cute little playground area for the kids. They have this barn that the kids can play in with stairs. The stairs led to this cool little slide! All the kids seemed to love this!
They also had this tractor that the kids were allowed to climb on! It never sat empty! All the kids loved this as well! Here is Ben (on the right) with a bunch of other kids!
Here are my boys on the hayride!

Time to pick the perfect pumpkin! Here are their choices!
Here is a bunch of the boys in our group with their pumpkins! Ben is first in the photo, and Alex is second. It was very very hard to get everyone's attention at the pumpkin patch. There was way too much excitement going on!
They also had a Farm Market there as well! It had all kinds of goodies inside, like farm grown apples, homemade pies, sweets, and ciders. Yummy!
Look at this cool slide! Looks like a lot of fun! Unfortunately, we didn't get to ride this. Maybe next time! Actually....definitely next time!
Here's Ben (in the third window) after a long and exhausting day at the pumpkin patch! It was his first trip on a school bus, and he and all the kids were very excited!
Also, one of the coolest things on this farm is the huge displays that they have of popular kid's movies and nursery rhymes. There are way too many to include in my blog post, so I decided to upload a slideshow so it doesn't bog down your computer with photo overload! lol Enjoy! And if you put your cursor over each photo in the slideshow it will tell you the particular pumpkin display! They were very very creative with this! Enjoy!

We never had anything like this when I was a kid. Looks like a lot of fun - and how great that everyone gets a pumpkin when they leave.

Great slide show, too, but you know I'm loving the Goat Bridge!
