The Pumpkin Patch

by Josée

We don’t have any real pumpkin patches back home. Our summer is too short. We have a mock pumpkin field and most little kids probably wouldn’t know the difference between the fake and real version. After today, I’m convinced that Monkey would know the difference. Real pumpkin patches have an abundance of M-U-D!

Today we went with our friends to Aldor Acres pumpkin patch, which is close to Fort Langley. They have farm animals, hay rides, pumpkins and mud of course!

When we arrived at the pumpkin patch Sweetpea was giving us the “pirate eye”. Monkey has been trying to master this look for a few months now.
Monkey wasn’t bothered by his “pirate eye” defeat for long. We made it halfway from the car to the toll both when he found the first puddle.
Here is the pumpkin diameter price calculator. You slide your pumpkin in to figure out how much it’s going to cost. 

Monkey enjoyed petting terrorizing the animals and sitting in the green tractor.

And when the rain started to pour Monkey found a few piles of wet leaves to jump into.

The hayride was fun.

But not as fun as the pumpkin field mud puddles.

Especially deep and sticky mud puddles.

Monkey was having so much fun and then… he tripped dived into the mud!

And came out saying “Oooo I’m wet!…brrrr cold!”

A happy muddy boy!

The clean-up was intense.
What a glorious and victorious day!

Killer! SO good! He is the most fearless little man I've ever encountered. And the most mud-resistant.
