pumpkin patch playdate

In 2012 and 2013 we went to Owen's Farm.  Sadly, last year was their last year to be opened before they closed the farm down.  It was such a fun little pumpkin patch and was super close to our house.  I was ready to make it an annual tradition.  

Last week our MOPS group had a pumpkin patch playdate at Chesnut Square in Downtown McKinney.  We had to travel a little further to get to this pumpkin patch but as you can tell by the pictures, Pearson had a great time.  I don't know if we would drive the 40 minutes to go to this pumpkin patch next year, but if you live in the McKinney area, it was a cute little pumpkin patch.  It was very small and in a closed in area.  It was perfect for preschoolers and easy for me to keep an eye on Pearson while also having Nash with me.  There were so many great activities for Pearson including……

{a corn maze}
{petting a goat}
{making and eating homemade butter}
{face painting}
{decorating a pumpkin}
 While Pearson was enjoying all the activities, Nash was equally enjoying himself eating as many puffs as he possibly could!!
 They charged $8 for each child that could participate.  Adults and babies were FREE.  Price of admission included a pumpkin, all of the activities, and a little treat bag.  
 The treat bag included a little snack bag of pretzel (or princils as Pearson calls them).  It was the perfect little snack to munch on by the old house since Mommy forgot to pack a snack!
And of course, it wouldn't be a pumpkin patch trip without the obligatory pumpkin patch picture.  
I placed the boys where I wanted them then proceeded to tell Pearson to "put your arm around brother and smile"!  He obeyed and he took me quite literally!!
While these pictures might not be Pinterest perfect, I just absolutely adore them.  They reflect so perfect who my little boys are at this age.  Pearson is a litter stinker and Nash just goes with the flow and doesn't let anything upset him!!
 Looking forward to many more pumpkin patch visits in the future with these two crazy boys!!

These pictures are so cute. Wish I could have been there watching Pearson enjoy his Pumpkin Patch trip! Nash is a tough little dude to let big brother "head lock" him!
