Pumpkin Patch

Friday night we found ourselves with nothing to do. We had been wanting to take the kids to a pumpkin patch that was in Santa Clara. It turned out that it was the Johnson family farm... this is a family that I have known since way back in my early childhood in Santa Clara. My friend had a migraine, so we took her kids and headed over. The pumpkin patch was free... then you bought tickets to go on the rides and do the activities.
The barrel trains are always a blast!
They had real horses to ride...
and fake horses... and bulls.... Everyone kept telling me how cute Zoe was... ahhh to have a girl for a few minutes:)
The boys liked digging for the "needle" in the haystack... they had placed nails in there and if you found one, you could win a prize.
Farmyard toys are the best!
They had dinner to buy as well and we ended up staying until it was dark. It's nice to have fun stuff like this around... and close to home... I've been trying to figure out how we could do this at our farm..... something to ponder:)

Anisa, just bite the bullet and try for that little girl. I really think you are to have one more child...and she will be a girl. I just know it!!!! Isn't it great I can receive inspiration for you. ;) Looks like a lot of fun at the pumpkin patch. Glad you found one.
