Fall Fun

A couple weekends ago we took a trip to Arthur, IL...right in the heart of Amish "The Great Pumpkin Patch" to get some good ole pumpkins for carving.  This was seriously the greatest pumpkin patch ever! 
Of course they had your typical huge, ginormous pumpkins like all pumpkin patches...
 ...but they also had this huge wall 'o squash...yes squash...
...and these characters

 ...and a sunflower maze (we were a little late...not much sunflower left in that maze)
 ...and pumpkins as far as the eye could see

 Brielle had a great time in the hay maze...Bryce...slightly confused by what was going on
...and again Bryce slighty confused as to why his parents plopped him on this giant seat

The biggest hit of the day?  Was it the pumpkins or the mazes or the squash...of course was the popcorn!  This was the scene you find during the majority of our afternoon...the kids chomping on popcorn.
 Hey Bryce...why aren't you in the pics with Brielle by this friendly little hay bale guy...
...or running through this giant wall of something with Dad?
 "Too busy Mom...stuffing my face...leave me alone please...nows my chance to get as much in my mouth as possible until Brielle comes back!"
 We had a great time, found our pumpkins, and will be sure to be back again next year!
