We took Noah to a local pumpkin patch/farm yesterday and froze our behinds off! Neither Ray or I thought that it would be as cold as it actually was… in fact, Ray thought I had dressed Noah to warm when I put his heavy winter coat on him. It was only just above 30 degrees though and that coat was the perfect one (it was a steal when we bought it too – only $10!!! what a great end of season clearance find!)… Noah was the only one of us three that wasn’t freezing by the time we left.
The farm had much more to offer than just pumpkins… there were your typical farm animals to be seen, fed and petted as well as exotic animals like giraffe, kangaroos, and even baby tigers!! Noah wasn’t too sure about being in the tent that housed all of those animals though, since there was one cow that kept mooing very loudly (Ray got a picture of it). Noah wasn’t too sure about any of the animals actually – the only exception was the little piglets in the pig race. He really started smiling when he saw them!
We ended our time at the farm by going on a tracker ride to the pumpkin patch and we picked our own to take back home with us. Noah had a blast sitting on the hay bales in the back of the wagon and watching the tractor pull us along over the muddy fields.
