Vala's Pumpkin Patch

Here we are at Vala's Pumpkin Patch. Justin's work has their Fall party here. We love it! There never seems to be enough time to accomplish all of the many fun activities. This year we decided to do more than we ever have before. I guess the fact that our kids are older and more tolerable of multiple activies helped. And there were NO STROLLERS to push. This picture was taken after roasting Hot Dogs over the fire and several s'mores. YUMMY :)

The Kids drove tractors.

We took a train ride all around the farm. Jenna got to toot the horn when we were all done. She thought that was pretty cool.

This year we discovered a "Trampoline". It was so much fun. The kids would have stayed there longer if we would have had time. There were two separate tramps. One for kids 1-6 and one for the older kids. I think the parents had as much fun as the kids did. I am sure we'll head here first next year.

This was my favorite...The Peddle Cars. You could ride up to four on a car. Justin took the girls and Tyler and I drove one. Well, Tyler handled the steering and I was the speed. Since my steering wheel was only for show, I decided to speed us up and try to catch up to Justin and the girls. I guess I should have taken into account my 8 year olds inexperience with driving. We hit the retaining wall as we turned a corner...oops!! We had a blast!

The Hayrack Ride

We met up with some friends who invited us to go with them on the Hayrack ride. This was some ride. It took us way up in the pumpkin fields. After lots of dust and bumps, we made it to the top. Here people can get out and pick their own pumpkin from the field. We came home with three big pumkins and three itty bitty ones. You can guess who picked those out... Megan.

In this picture: Tyler, Cory, Megan, Jenna and Kaylie

Thanks for the "To Do's" at Valla's. We still haven't been, but will hopefully get there within the next few weeks. This is how I know what's going on with you. Isn't this sad though, because we live in the same city!

FYI: I opened up a new blog as well. The address is Check it out.

That looks like so much fun!! We went to a similar thing out at Thanksgiving Point with Lar for Brandon's birthday date. It was so much fun! I love your blog and check it all the time to see what you are up to. One of these days I will get up with the times and get one going!

I sure miss Vala's! My sister and her husband just moved to Lincoln and I told them about Vala's and they went a couple weeks ago and loved it. Fun times!
