The Cutest Pumpkin in the Patch!

Welcome to Thies Farm!
Daddy had the morning off on Friday, so we decided to hit up the pumpkin patch! It is the cutest little place, Thies Farm, and we had such a good time! It was a really chilly day, but we still had a great time. We saw all the animals, went down the slide, climbed on the spider web, and picked out a big pumpkin! Connor really enjoyed the whole day - he was just laughing at all the pumpkins like they were the funniest things he had ever seen!
We picked out the cutest small pumpkin at the patch!
He loved his new friends, Betty and Billy, and they loved him! They kept coming over, I think they wanted to nibble on his fingers, but they were good and just smelled him :)
Connor and Granny were such brave explorers going through the dark tunnels!
Connor found his pumpkin and we were ready to hit the road! He picked out the perfect pumpkin and it looks great on the front step next to the pumpkin from The Rice's!
We had such a nice afternoon at the pumpkin patch - it is so fun to take Connor all these places and see his reaction. We kept saying he was going to be in seventh heaven next year running around to all the great things to do! Petting the animals, going down the slide, riding on the pirate ship and going through the corn maze! All in all a great first trip to the pumpkin patch!
