Pumpkin Patch #2

This was Addy's second trip to the pumpkin patch but because I can't remember Linda's snapfish login I'm going to post them out of chronological order. Since I post everything weeks late anyway it's not like anyone is going to notice!

We drove out to the rich people's part of Nashville and went to the good pumpkin patch. It really was a neat set up, they had two barns the kids could run around in, tire swings, little log cabins, hay rides and all kinds of other activities.

One of the barns had a hay bale maze set up inside. Addy ran right in and kept up with the bigger kids.

Her favorite part BY FAR, were the corn bins. She could have poured and sifted corn for 3 hours. And trust me, she wanted to.

In fact every time we tried to move on she would break out in heartbroken tears, weeping for the corn. Of course as a typical toddler she was fine once we were out of sight.

Addy really wanted to pet the goats but I guess that's a pretty big insurance liability.

Case in point!

Not crazy about the chickens and turkey. They were pretty mean too, squawking and nipping at the chicken wire. Could it be hundreds of kids running around screaming and throwing feed at their heads upset them? Surely not

Ah corn, much better.

Yes, we're horrible dragging her away from the corn again . As Nate put it $12 is a lot to spend for 3 hours of corn fun.

Seriously, I don't care about a corn field maze in the shape of a giant cow, or a nature walk. I just want to play in the corn.

She really did enjoy the corn maze though. No lasting scars. Although we did have trouble with the concept of a path. She kept fording right through the corn like she was on a Lewis and Clark expedition

A pumpkin just her size. Although at this point of the afternoon the nap is calling.

That's all Folks!
