A Visit to the Pumpkin Patch

The Pumpkin Farm and Nicole
It is the season of the Great Pumpkin and Halloween is just around the corner. That meant that the time for our annual trek to the pumpkin farm in Davidsonville, MD was upon us. 

Yesterday was the day. Clear blue skies and moderate temperatures combined to make an idyllic day on the farm with the pumpkins. 

Jax: I Like it but I Want a Moon Pumpkin
There were, of course, pumpkins everywhere, but there was an incredible amount of fun as we charged through the corn stalk maze launching corn kernels at each other while running sneak attacks across the rows of corn. I admit, I had never done that before and ensuring that the other non-family members in the maze were not inadvertently attached added a sense of realism and fun to the game. 
Ethan: Is it the Great Pumpkin?"

We were a bit disappointed in the quality of the pumpkins in the field. Many were broken and rotting already. In fact, we did not purchase any large pumping, settling for a few small ones and some gourds. 

The Corn Maze
There was the obligatory posing on the straw bales for the annual photos--but with it being such a beautiful day, the posing was not a problem.

A great afternoon and fun memory it just makes me want to say: Happy Halloween!
