Pumpkin Patch

This morning we went to a pumpkin patch in Brandon, MS. We had so much fun. There was a hayride through the farm where we got to see animals, and then it took us to a pumpkin patch where Louisa was able to pick out 2 pumpkins for the front porch. She loved the hayride, but didn't quite catch the concept of picking out the pumpkins. She loved to look at them though. We went with some friends that have little ones too. We tried to get a photo with all of them together, Louisa, Ella and Chapman, but it is so difficult to get them to stay all in one place, plus the pumpkin patch was getting in the way of Chapman's nap. He was a champ though. After the hayride, we got to look at a small petting zoo that they had at the farm. Louisa was fascinated by the big turkeys - I don't think they shared her love because they kept poking out their feathers and shaking and making funny noises - being the city girl that I am, I was scared, but Byron said that is what they do when they aren't too sure of things. Whatever, those things are huge and scary - hope they remember their behavior towards us in the end of November. Hehe.

Here are some pictures.

These were taken on the hayride:

For those that may read this in Jackson - we went to the Nichols-Boyd Pumpkin Patch on Hwy 43 in Brandon. I highly recommend it, it was great family fun. We were also excited to find out that they also have a Christmas Tree farm in December, so we will pull a Chevy Chase Christmas Vacation picking out a real tree. Hopefully, we wont suffer the same fate as they did in the movie!
