Going to the pumpkin patch

Today, we went to the pumpkin patch. This hasn't been an annual tradition for us, but we've been to a variety of patches over the years. A few of the trips were before digital cameras, so the photos are not too easy to find. Here are some memories from a few years ago...

For some reason, when Nicholas was one I ended up taking the two little ones to the pumpkin patch on my own--not sure what Mike and Chris were doing.

Then we had another gap, until Kieran went to the pumpkin patch as a field trip in first grade.

Nicholas hadn't been to a pumpkin patch since he was a little tyke, so when our friends asked if we'd like to accompany them, we were all over it.

And goats (Nick was not too anxious to get near them)
