Our Trip to the Pumpkin Patch...

Jared was put on assignment to go check out a local corn maze to see if it was something the youth in our ward would enjoy doing for a joint activity. While we decided that it probably wouldn't be a lot of fun for a bunch of teenagers it was perfect for little kids! Landon and Tori loved looking at all the pumpkins and wandering around the patch. Landon and I also had a blast trying to hunt down Jared and the girls in the corn maze (Jared thought he was being tricky running from us but we ended up finding our way through the maze before him). Though all of this was super fun, nothing compared to the excitement that exuded from Landon as he got to pay the man working at the pumpkin patch coins for his and Tori's pumpkins ( the pumpkins were cheap too, the ones we got were 2 for $1.00!). I am not kidding this was the highlight of Landon's afternoon, oh to be young and easily pleased by such simple things. Here are some pictures from our fun afternoon. I apologize in advance for so many pictures but I got a lot of good shots!
Ella was not very impressed with the Pumpkin patch. So young and yet so hard to please.
Making our way through the maze. This picture is just before the kids picked out their pumpkins Landon kept holding up his pumpkin and telling it to say cheese As an added bonus the kids got free "baby pumpkins"

Never be sorry for so many pictures, can there be to many pictures of the most beautiful grandchildren in the world? I love the baby pumpkins so cute to see them carrying those around

HAHA! That's the best.

I remember going to the pumpkin patch for a field trip in elementary school. I thought it was THE BEST.

And I dunno--I'd probably still enjoy it today. :) I'll have to request it for a youth activity.

I think you'd be surprised at some of the youth actually enjoying a trip to the pumpkin patch. take me for example,... I don't think I have ever been to a corn maze,... I bet they'd come up with ways to make it fun for each other.

Love the pics,.. they are so adoreable,.. I love Landon's and tori's expressions! :)

It isn't so much that we think they wouldn't enjoy a trip to a corn maze, just not this particular one. It was really small and since these kids have grown up in the land of corn they have been to a lot of big impressive corn mazes (last year they went to a really cool one but it is pretty pricey and they don't have the money in their budget to go to it this year).

Theresa said...

yeah that was the only thing I was going to say where they might not enjoy it. :) if they were used to more grand mazes.
