Zillions of Pumpkins!

Every year, since Annabelle was just wee tot, we would head over to the Great Pumpkin Farm in Clarence.  There are literally thousands of pumpkins there, along with gourds and corn stalks, a petting zoo, hay maze and a shop that sells cider and cookies and all types of Halloween decorations.  If you head over there on weekends, they have all kinds of amusement park-type rides and concession stands, plus a haunted house and a pumpkin catapult.  Except we don't go on weekends because they charge you to get in and Annabelle would beg for some $5 rides and that's just ridiculous to me.  So we went on a chilly Tuesday evening and still had a great time.

She fell asleep in the car on the way over.  I couldn't help snap a quick picture of her in her new big girl booster seat.

We take a picture of her in the mums every year.  It makes me a little sad to see her so big.  The first year the mums were almost taller than her!

She wanted a photo in front of the pumpkins.

This is another picture we take every year.  Annabelle and Daddy up on the pumpkin steps.

How much do I weigh?

Annabelle took a shot of me next to one of the 1000 pound carved pumpkins.

Annabelle in the wheel barrow with our purchase, three rather large pumpkins.  These were the smallest ones we could find, it must have been a good pumpkin season this year.
 We have already gutted our pumpkins and carved them.  We couldn't wait any longer for some yummy pumpkin seeds.  Now we'll have to wait a whole year until we can have some again:(


  1. The visit to the "great pumpkin patch" is always so fun. Loved the pictures, your Annabelle is such a cutie!

  2. Looks like she had a great time! I love the last one of her in the wheel barrel. :)

  3. We always end up having a great time. It's so fun now that Annabelle is remembering that we come every year.
