Pumpkin Patch Time (Oct 2012)

Posted October 28, 2012 – 5:44 pm

With the arrival of fall, Annemarie started talking constantly about pumpkin patchs and Halloween.

In early October, Annemarie and Winston got to join the annual school trip to a pumpkin farm in Dixon.

Winston had his first try at bowling…


… while Annemarie practiced horseback riding!


Then, in late October, we took another family trip to a local pumpkin patch at the Impossible Acres with the Kleemans (Mike, Erin, Carson, and Bennett). Annemarie and Winston enjoyed a ride in the wheelbarrow.


Winston was fascinated with the baby goat (but called them “doggies!”).

The kids had fun playing hide and seek in the hay maze.



  Taking a break from the hay maze, a friendly wheelbarrow race between the Spillers and the Kleemans ensued:


Annemarie loved to pick up the small farm animals and pat them, while Winston was busy climbing up whatever he could get his hands & feet on.

 Of all the animals, Annemarie especially loved the kittens – she could have stayed there all day!



 Saying ‘hi’ and ‘bye’ to the alpacas.
