The Pumpkin Patch

We headed to Smith Family Farms yesterday and visited the pumpkin patch with our oldest son and grandson. The weather cooperated and it was a lovely day. We checked out the animals and went to the "Hootin' Hoedown" where we sang silly songs and Christopher even played in the band. 

Two friendly scarecrows welcomed us.


 and peacocks......

 and ponies Oh My!

 And this little piglet was just adorable!

 I love the expression on Christopher's face!

 I found a unique one with lots of warts!

We had a great time and Christopher can't wait to "curve" the pumpkins!
