Our Trip To The Pumpkin Patch


This year marks the 10th year that we have made our annual trip to the pumpkin patch (yes, we started when Jason was 10 months old! I will have to try to scan in some of the pictures as this was pre-digital camera days for me!)

Cox Farms does a wonderful job…it is huge and there is tons for all the kids to do, as well as free apples and apple cider (if you can brave the bees!) You never know what the weather will be like…this year it was hot. We met up with some homeschooled friends and they had blast.


Kyle got plenty of time on the rope swing (his favorite part). Once the school crowds clear away around 1pm we pretty much get the run of the place.



The slides are also big favorites. What kid wouldn’t enjoy sliding out of a volcano?


Feeding the goats was fun.


Even though Jason lost his cone to one very aggressive goat.


Didn’t this picture turn out gorgeous? I know that it is not one of my kids, but isn’t he sweet?


I did get some cute pictures of my boys.


How’s this for a pose?


But lest you think they are always cooperative about posing…


All in all, another successful trip to the pumpkin patch.


If you want to check out the other pictures I took, head on over to my Flickr account!


About throwingmarshmallows

I am a homeschooling mom to two sweet, energetic boys although I am probably not exactly what you would expect (definitely NOT your stereotypical homeschooler, if there is really such a thing). I support progressive political causes (yes, liberals can and do homeschool!) and I have found a spiritual home in the Unitarian Universalist Church. I have no real idea of how I want to use this blog, but will probably focus on homeschooling, things that I am learning from my boys, personal thoughts and opinions and maybe some liberal politics thrown in, who knows!
