Pumpkin Patch Pictures

Today we went to Granny Mae's Pumpkin Patch in Dorrence, Kansas with our friends, the Drapers. We rode a barrell train, went through a haunted forest, as well as a corn maze. The kids got to do a scavenger hunt in a fenced in area of hay. He also went on a hay ride and saw a land of scarecrows while being serenaded by a lady with a guitar. Popular hits were Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Home on the Range, and My Bonnie Lies over the Ocean.
The only thing we didn't do was go to the actual pumpkin patch because we already had our pumpkins--thanks to the Drapers who grew extras in their garden. Here are some pictures from our day. It was alot of fun!
Dedra and Liz posing with the poultry farm. I don't know if you can tell from this photo, but the gords are shapped like chickens, and the 2nd one from the right actually has little gords that look like eggs.
Dedra with another gord, what a pretty frame!
Colie with a scarecrow

Our family on top of hay bales that were about 5' tall.
Ken with one of their many scarecrows. The Cheneys & The Drapers getting ready for the hay ride.
Matthew trying to push a cart of pumpkins & gords.

The kids begging me to let this be the last picture so we can finally go and eat lunch.
