The Pumpkinator!

We took the kids to the pumpkin patch at Harvest Farms today and had such a great time! Aidan declared, "This place is awesome! I want to live here forever!" Of course when I told him all the work everyone has to do on a farm he changed his mind. Nonetheless, it's a cool place to visit.

The boys loving the barrel train.

Highlight of the farm, The Pumpkinator, an air-compressed cannon for shooting pumpkins up to 1/2 mile away.

We picked out a big pumpkin to carve and will probably cut into that tomorrow. What a wonderful day!

P.S. I totally forgot to add a picture of Aidan's favorite part of the farm- the mini-pumpkin launcher! For $1 he got to try hitting various targets in the field with this min-cannon. He got 2 out of 3 and totally would of spent every last dollar we had on this game.

Also, I didn't mention that we had lunch there at their little cafe barn- the best Bierocks! Yummmmmm! The night before, Doug, Ella and I got to go out to dinner with Doug's parents while Uncle Curt and KJ watched the boys. We went to the supper club and pigged out on their Oktoberfest buffet. Soooo good. I even splurged and had a St Paulie Girl.
