A Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

Saturday, we took a trip to Huber's Farm, about 50 minutes away in Indiana. It's a really popular place to visit during the fall, particularly to visit the pumpkin patch and to eat some Pumpkin Ice Cream. We met Audrey, Olivia, Audrey's mom, aunt, and sister there. We all rode out to the pumpkin patch on a wagon pulled by a tractor, and spent about 30 minutes walking around choosing the perfect pumpkins. Joe and the girls and I had a goal of finding one really big pumpkin and two smaller pumpkins. We already had one bigger one at home, so that would make one for each of us. Let's just say, we accomplished our goal, if you consider a 35 lb. pumpkin really big :) No pictures of them yet, but I'm sure I'll take some when we carve them!

After the pumpkin patch, we walked around a bit and had some ice cream. There really is nothing better than eating Pumpkin Ice Cream in October. It's fresh and delicious and has a perfect flavor... and yes, I would choose it over a Pumpkin Spice Latte.

The girls got to get up close and personal with some ducks. They threw them some corn and laughed at how they were sleeping in the water.

The icing on the cake (cool whip on the pumpkin pie?) was getting some of the Huber's restaurant food to go and taking it home for a nice meal. Their fried chicken is better than KFC's!

Today was a boring day. Lots of sitting around and watching TV. Tomorrow I'll be baby-sitting Bella... Hopefully the weather is nice and we can get out of the house a bit.

I hope y'all had a great weekend! Make sure you check out Simply Femme in the morning and answer our Question of the Week: If you could look like any female celebrity, except Megan Fox, who would it be and why?

Great pictures. We went to a pumpkin patch on Sunday. I will post pictures soon. Not so happy with the hubby that day, he wasn't paying attention to Zoe and she fell off backwards off of a pumpkin. She was fine and it was a small pumpkin but man did he get the "death stare". I bit my tongue, barely.

We are headed to the pumpkin patch soon. Still makes me laugh that they have pumpkin patches in FL. I don't know why I find it funny, I just do.

I love the pictures, the girls are so cute! I've GOT to see this 35lb pumpkin!
