who has time for pumpkin pickin

So after reading Three Times the Giggles 2-3 weeks ago, I got really jealous of their pumpkin farm where they picked their own. 

So I went online, in search of my own farm, and found this great site that is a directory for the whole US plus the UK, New Zealand, South Africa, Australia and Canada. Just pick your location.

I found this GREAT one in our area.  It has a 10'cow, a pumpkin slingshot, ice cream parlor, petting zoo and a tractor bus that takes you to pick your own pumpkin - which is the point! I was so excited to find a pumpkin patch - especially after buying them off the side of the road for a couple of years (which isn't a bad thing and totally supports the local farmer).  I thought it would be great to take all my boys to, and even little man would have a good time.

But then of course we got busy, you know how it is. Sports and the hubby working weekends and at some point I have to do laundry and clean the house.  So we didn't make it last weekend or the weekend before.  But we ARE GOING THIS WEEKEND!!!  Just me and the boys (hubby still working) It may be late - but better late than never!  And I'll post pics of the 10' cow that you are all dying to see.  Wanna guess which kid tries to climb it?

So is there anything that you really want to do, but are having to wait until the last minute?

If it weren't for the last minute, I wouldn't get anything done. ~Author Unknown


  1. I soooo wish that Australia was more into Halloween - I want to go pick pumpkins!!!

  2. There is NEVER enough time. Moms need to unite for the 25 hour day!


  3. I love pumpkin patches! I hope you have fun this weekend! Your kids will have a blast!

    We're supposed to go to a Halloween party this Saturday and we have to wear costumes. I have still not figured out what we're wearing. Eveyrtime I think about it, I get caught up doing something else and then I completely forget. I may just go as a very stressed out mother.

  4. It always takes us AGES to get our Christmas tree. Dunno why, but it does.

  5. These days I wait till the last minute for everything. The project that is bothering me now is the calendar I'm supposed to be making for the grandparents.
