So we made a visit to the second pumpkin patch of the season. Paul asked how many Sophie was going to be visiting this fall...probably 5 total (which includes one that is more of a petting zoo and another that is a you-pick-it place). Today, though, we headed north to meet with our friends the Dyers to go to Pumpkins on the Prairie. We had so much fun, they have so many activities for families.
One of the newest things they added a couple of years ago is the pumpkin launching. You basically buy a small pumpkin, they get it set up and then you get to launch it into the field. We let all the kids have a chance as well as the daddies. Kindergartner Hope figured out that the smaller pumpkins would hit the ground and roll but larger pumpkins would actually crack and break upon impact.
