Grandma and Grandpa and the pumpkin patch

Yes.  It is almost Christmas.

But it's time for some serious catch-up.

This fall we were excited to have Grandma and Grandpa Wagner visit, and we tried to soak them in as much as possible since they were about to leave on another mission.  This time around Grandpa is going to be second counselor in the Paraguay Temple Presidency. 

So we visited our pumpkin patch for a small and "homey" experience picking pumpkins. 

The kids enjoyed a good old fashioned tractor ride out to the fields. 
They scoured the fields for the perfect pumpkin. 

And did some serious posing.  She is a pro.  Seriously.  (Heaven help us through the teenage years).

And to finish it off, the kids had some other activities they were interested in participating in at this "small" pumpkin patch:  Swings, jump houses, corn maze, hay bale maze, paying a small fortune for some homemade donut holes, and....

bull riding.  I think Linc lasted 2.3 seconds??
Nothing like a small hometown visit to a local pumpkin patch, eh?
