At the Pumpkin Patch

IMG_2197IMG_2075Last week, we met up with auntie C at Aldor Acres. After a few years at another pumpkin patch, it was fun to try something new. There was so much going on there that we really didn’t spend a lot of time in the pumpkin patch, and instead spent time checking out and feeding the farm animals.

IMG_2183IMG_2200When we first arrived, this field was full of dense fog, and crows were circling around. Talk about a real life haunted house!

And just for kicks, here’s one of my favourite throwbacks – a face-off between the pumpkin princess and toddler J.

  2. Isn’t that a wonderful pumpkin patch ? I often took the classes there for field trips and it is one of my favourites. We also went to the Steveston Highway one in Richmond but it is a little more commercial and busy. Great photos as always and 3 beautiful girls.
