The American Tradition- Trip to the Punkin' Patch

We, like almost every other American family, made our annual trip to the pumpkin patch.  Which really wasn't a patch at all but it was the closest thing to it without having to hike to timbuktu for a pumpkin, that quite honestly I could have bought at Walmart for $3.74...but that's besides the point.  The whole point is to take Caleb and let him have some fun.  It was quite crowded and we tried to make the most of the morning...and we actually did end up having lots of fun, even though Caleb was determined to do his own thing the whole time (gotta love his new love of independence!) 
We got some good pictures and bought Caleb his own, Caleb-size pumpkin.  He had a blast trampsing around the "patch" pointing at pumpkins and picking up all the mini pumpkins.  I hope to find an actual "patch" next year.  I want to pull that bad boy off the vine and take him home to be carved...or painted...or to just sit at the front door and welcome our trick or treaters. 

 Here are a few pictures of our pumpkin patch experience:

 Somebody wasn't ready to leave...wonder who it was...
Although he started whistlin' a different tune when we pulled into the Steak n' Shake a few minutes after this picture was taken :)  We are as American as they come: Pumpkin Patch followed up with lunch at the Steak n' Shake!

You got some great pictures! I love Caleb's boots! I took Rylie to the same place last year and I got stung by a wasp (and ended up needing a shot and an epi-pen prescription) so I'm afraid to go back. It's SUCH a cute little place though! If you find an actual patch nearby, let me know!
