Tate Farms Pumpkin Patch

We took Josiah to the pumpkin patch for the first time this weekend.  His first word was "out" and he has now graduated to saying the two syllable "outside" so needless to say, he had a WONDERFUL time.  We went during for our church's family night and that definitely made it even better.

It was a beautiful fall day and the weather was perfect. Josiah got to jump with Daddy on the big inflatable.  He loved is as long as he was in Steven's arms.

Then we went to the petting area to see the animals.  Josiah loved to look and point.

He was really comfortable until they decided to look at him.  One look from this goat sent him over the edge and he created quite a scene.  As we were leaving the goat pen strangers were asking me if he got bit.  But no, he just got a little frightened by this little guy:

Next we went to his favorite thing: the corn crib.  He was a little leery at first because of the goat incident but he quickly warmed up to it.

This action shot captures the mood perfectly I think!

Steven and Josiah were brave enough to go down this giant slide.  It was very bumpy in side and everyone had shaky voices as they went down.  It was pretty funny.

By the second time I was able to get a picture with a smile!

We then snapped a few family pics, hoping for a framer.  Unfortunately, Josiah is in a stage where he doesn't look at the camera very often.  But we got a few good ones.

Next we went on the hayride to the pumpkin patch.  Josiah was thrilled at the fact that we were being driven by a tractor.  He loves those things, especially John Deere!  Please excuse my swollen preggers body!

Josiah picked the pumpkin right in front of him here.  So we had to get it.  He loves to look out our front window at our pumpkins.  He is still working on getting that word.

It was a great evening and the beautiful thing was Josiah was WORN OUT by the time we got home. 
Happy Fall to everyone!
