Pumpkin Patch-October 17


We stumbled all around the pumpkin patch this past weekend.  It was a super nice day, especially for mid October in Colorado.  Chris always has to find the perfect pumpkin (or 5) and we have made it a family tradition to search for them in the pumpkin patch at Rock Creek Farms.  It was rough walking for Em, so we didn’t spend our usual hour searching.   


Instead Em and I explored some other areas while TC searched and searched!


Chris found a couple of really nice pumpkins and we headed over to the kids area.  They have farm animals, a haystack maze, face painting, and a jumpy castle.  Em loved the animals and ran around crazy inside the maze.  It was so cute to see her little head bobbing around, she was just a tiny bit taller than the maze.


Then she saw some kids that had climbed up on top of the hay…and of course she had to try that too! 


We grabbed some yummy pumpkin bread and headed home.  We shall see how the carving goes!!



  1. Babies are one of the few people who can pull off the suspender look. Cute as always. Hope you have a fun Halloween.

  2. I just love “The Pumpkin Patch”. Warran and I went with you all last year when Miss Emily was too little to walk. It looks like it was even more fun now. Sam is quite correct about the suspenders/overall look. It is best on babies, although I do have a pair of overalls myself that I promise not to wear in the presence of my children (and grandchild). You all look so wonderful in the pictures! Grammy M
