I kept seeing all our friends posting pumpkin patch pictures of their kids on Facebook so I figured I needed to get Trey to one. Elliot Farms is just a few miles down the road from us and has an annual pumpkin patch, hay rides and corn maze.
Unfortunately, I’m a bit behind the times and the patch was looking pretty patchy. Nonetheless, Trey had a great time riding & pushing around a toy tractor to see all the animals on their farm. Goats, turkeys, peacocks, chickens, cows, guinea fowl, and longhorn cattle.
After looking at what was left of the pumpkins (many of which were smashed or cracked at this point), we went over to the neighboring field of zinnias which were all in bloom. I gave Trey a nice little lesson on why the bees and butterflies go around to all the flowers. He was pretty fascinated by it all until he stepped in a fire ant hill.
