Pumpkin Patch

It was the perfect day to go to a pumpkin patch so we headed out to Canby to try the pumpkin patch out there with the Walkers.

They had goats that would climb onto the platforms in the trees so you can shimmy a little can of food up to them. Everson was a little confused about why there were goats in the tree. Both boys also loved seeing the llama, chickens, and smelly pigs.
I think we had a little too much fun taking pictures of the kids with the wooden cut outs.
There was a little farm trail hike that we ventured down. Surprisingly, Everson, who is usually a very timid child, voluntarily led the way.
We are so glad Todd was able to hold this tree up so we can all pass! Jonah wasn't buying it but Eli was a little hesitant to pass under it.

We had a fun little time on our small hike!
Pumpkin picking didn't go as quickly as we thought. Canon found his very quickly and then proceeded to try and eat it, and wouldn't put it down. Everson on the other hand searched and searched for the right pumpkin. He told us he wanted an oval pumpkin that he could carry but still pretty big. Everson got a little frustrated when he couldn't find the pumpkin he wanted, but then ended up being happy with one Todd found for him.

The boys and their pumpkins!

We were so happy to spend the day outside with friends at a fun place!
