Pumpkin Picking and Painting

Over the weekend we headed to our local pumpkin patch, MacDonald's Ranch, to pick out some pumpkins and enjoy some fall fun (even though it was still like 80 degrees).
It's a really fun little place. I actually was just there the week before for a work event that included a sunset horseback ride through the desert and a campfire dinner.

The horses were the big draw for the kiddos too. They couldn't wait to go horseback riding.
Then there was panning for gold...
A petting zoo...
A hay bale maze (forgot to get a picture) and lots of games.
Finally, we headed to the pumpkin patch. They had a cute train to take us out there, and then we took a hay ride back.
The kids actually ended up picking really little pumpkins this year, so we decided to just let them paint them instead of trying to carve them.
We did pick out one larger pumpkin to actually carve. Bill cleaned it out, the kids designed the face, and I carved.
So much fun!
