Running from the Law: Pumpkin Patch

Pumpkin Patch

I feel like the powers-that-be might revoke my blogging card if I don't post the obligatory pumpkin patch pictures.  I'm sure you've seen this exact same post from every single blogger you read, so I'll skip a lot of the commentary and just get right to it.    

We went to Rombach's Farm early Sunday morning.  The place was much less crowded than we thought it'd be (score!).  Probably because everyone else was at church, while us heathens were the only ones out and about.  Nothing like waiting until the last possible minute.  You gotta do what you gotta do.  
Mac was less than impressed with all the big orange "balls" lying around.  
Mac and I took a train ride, but he cried for daddy the whole time. 
His first pony ride was slightly traumatic.  
He liked looking at the ponies much more than sitting on one.  
Was not ready to leave them.  I think he wants a pony for Christmas now.
The slide was a big hit (surprise surprise).
The tunnel was not.  Daddy had to escort him through.
The antique fire truck was ok...but too many other kids wanted to drive, which lead to frustration and anger.
We had to leave before he punched a child.  
The bubbles were exciting for about 10 seconds, then he was over them.
The actual pumpkin patch was beautiful.
He had fun with daddy trying to roll the balls.
But of course, wouldn't you know, the highlight of the whole trip were the tractors.
He could have sat on this tractor, happy as a clam, all the live long day.
Before we left, we took a hayride around the farm.  
He was pretty over it by this point and was pissed that he was in the trailer and not in the tractor.  
Overall, it was a successful trip, but I think Ryan and I had a lot more fun than the little guy did.  I'm pretty sure we could have sat him on the lawn mower in our garage and called it a day.  Oh well.  Such is life with a toddler.  :)  He didn't smile for a single photo, but I think they turned out cute nonetheless.  At least we can check that one off the fall bucket list.  


  1. He is so stinking cute! Looks like such a fun day!

  2. He is all boy! :) That looks like a beautiful patch!

  3. A. I'm buying him a pony.
    B. You're the cutest family ever.
    C. Is he wearing baby Citizens?!
    D. It's pretty much cuteness overload

  4. Aww, these pictures are all so great!! Jackson doesn't like smiling for pictures these days either! Its almost impossible to get him to sit still long enough for a picture. :-( I have to just take what I can get.

  5. There is so much to do at your pumpkin patch! Looks so fun! I've had to accompany Max to his new love of slides at chickfilas and Mc D's and let me just say that it is a work out. There is no way I'm letting him climb up and go himself yet (even though the husband says it's going to be tough to find a college dorm room big enough for both of us lol). Fun times ahead for you :)

  6. Adorable pictures!!! Where did you get his hat and sweater??

    1. Thanks Jess! The hat's from Etsy and the sweat is from Gap Kids.

  7. That place looks awesome, so many fun things to do! He looks adorable in his perfect lil fall outfit, too cute!!!

  8. Does it make you feel better we still haven't visited the Pumpkin patch? That's our plan today..haha.
    Great photos - Ryan sure takes some nice shots, too! True blogger husband ;)

  9. I love all the tractors they had there! The pumpkin patch we went to was great but no where near as cool at the one you went to... ahh making me homesick for the mid west! :)

  10. Love the pictures. Especially the one where he looks terrified in the tunnel haha! Those are better than the smiling ones anyway :)

    Love your boots too!

  11. I can't help but laugh at the pony riding pictures! But the family picture in the pumpkin patch turned out so good...even without a smile from little man. And you got so many good pictures of the two of you must have a REALLY good husband ;)

  12. Love your photos! Fun family times.

  13. I've fully admitted the pumpkin patch was more for me than for M this year. Hopefully next year it's a joyous event for all of us (and not just camera-happy Mommy).
    Your photos turned out gorgeous! And, how the hell did you get Mac to keep his cute little hat on?!!

  14. Gorgeous photos and beautiful family! Looks like a family fun day :)

  15. Great pics and looks like you had a ton fun! So much to do at the patch too!

  16. Wow I didn't know pumpkins grew on trees?! =) What a handsome little guy, even without a smile. Aria has decided she doesn't feel like smiling for pictures anymore. That was so 2 months ago.

  17. First off Mac's outfit is sooo cute! Where do you get Seven jeans for babies?!?! I'm dying!! I also love that hat and sweater... I mean who said boys clothes aren't cute?! It looks like you had such a great day- I love that train ride!!

  18. I hope you took that GIANT pumpkin home! And that pumpkin patch (farm? Pumpkin-land? I mean it had EVERYTHING) looks like so much fun. I think I would have had way more fun than the babes too!

  19. I love how real you are about this experience! haha (and in general!) I'll admit, our trip was more for us/to take pictures for the blog. It was Noah's nap time and he could have cared less about all of it. I'm glad Mac at least had fun with the tractors! And you got some beautiful pictures!

  20. who cares if other people posted patch pics??? this little picture montage was worth reading and Mac looks OH SO HANDSOME in his dapper little duds....such a happy, gorgeous day doing something together as a family!! i love it ;)

  21. what a fun looking place. love Mac's hat!
