Pumpkin Patch Time!!

Theis Farm Pumpkin Patch - FamilyPicture

We didn’t dawdle this year, we ran straight for the pumpkin patch before a baby was born and we missed it.

Pumpkin patches are one of our absolute favorite part of Fall. It’s tricky though, you want to wait till it’s cool enough to wear fall-ish clothes, not so warm you show up in shorts, ruining that whole Autumn-y feeling that goes along with pictures of families sitting on giant pumpkins.

This day was pretty perfect.

Theis Farm Pumpkin Patch - Ethan

The screaming and tears were worth getting that hat on Ethan’s head. After the fit Ethan told us, “I’m not going to be a pill about wearing hats anymore.” Awesome.

Along with feeling great remorse after throwing his rare tantrums (at least a hour of frequent “I’m sorry” and “I won’t do that again” follows each time), he’s become quite the dare devil. He was going down every slide, walking across rope bridges, and jumping into tire swings without batting an eye.

The faster the better!

A year ago, no way he’d go down this slide 10 times in a row.

And this obstacle course was adorable.

And even though my motivation is severely dwindling these days, I couldn’t resist putting together this super quick video compilation of pumpkin patch cuteness…

There was even a hayride! I sat that one out, didn’t want a bumpy ride to push my luck, but the rest of our group had a great ride.

If you are looking for some fall fun, this all went down at Theis Farms Pumpkin Land in Maryland Heights. Awesome place.

We also spent a morning at the Botanical Gardens for their annual Best of Missouri Market. We meandered through the tents stuffed with vendors before heading toward the children’s area—Ethan couldn’t wait to milk the cow again…but this year he was determined NOT to get milk on his finger.

He may look timid here, but he milked that cow like a pro!

There were at least 20 events on my calendar for this past weekend, so I’m thrilled that I actually made it to a few. I have hours of high energy and also those of very low energy, but whatever the case, Peanut #2 seems to be content, allowing me to enjoy a little of my favorite time of year.

I’ve been loading up the STL events calendar with fun things to do so check it out! And send me more stuff if you want.

    Looks like a great time. Can’t believe how much he has changed since we went to the pumpkin patch last year. Fall is the best!
