The Pumpkin Patch

These cute little guys were on our wristbands at the...

...Kansas City Pumpkin Patch

We drove to Kansas to visit Val, Shep and Jason and they took us to the Pumpkin Patch.  We had heard about it before but had never been there and it was a great thing to do on a fall day.  The first thing we did was wander around through a corn maze, but I couldn't fit the photos in.  Galen and  I had never been in a corn maze before and it was fun.   We didn't get a bit lost but we heard a few days later about some folks calling 911 because they were lost in one.  Turns out they were only 25' from the entrance.

Galen (and his infamous bunny ears), Shep, and Karen wearing her new Mountain View stick people shirt.  Note the dulcimer player on the left.  It's the reason she bought the shirt.  :-)

There were all kinds of fun things for kids to do at the Pumpkin Patch.

Wiping out was not one of them.

Time out for a bandage and we were ready for more fun.

Isn't Shep cute?

Shep playing in a corn box instead of a sand box.  We later found pieces of corn under that bandage.

Jason and Shep on the pumpkin slide.

We took a little ride on this train to the Land of Oz.  We were, after all, in Kansas.

These bouncy horses were pretty cute but hard to control for someone whose arms aren't long enough to reach around the horse's neck.

Jason trying out a larger horse.

Shep is in the caboose.

Boing Boing Boing!  They would let only kids under a certain height on this huge bouncy thing for a while and then would switch to only kids over a certain height.  It was fun watching the really small kids bounce around.

Another small kid.  :-)

Jason, Val and Shep each picked out a pumpkin to take home.  Shep liked this one.

The end of a great day at the Pumpkin Patch.
