pumpkin patch

Two weekends ago, we went to Froberg's Farm to do our annual pumpkin patch visit.  We've been going to a big one in Spring, but it wasn't going to work out this year so we found a new, closer one.  We had no idea what to expect - all I knew is that it's a strawberry farm in the Spring.

It poured on the way there and we almost turned around.  Tyson was pretty upset with that idea so we decided to tough it out and see - luckily the rain hadn't gotten to the farm yet.  We started out on a hay ride and got a really cool tour of the farm.  It's family owned and the son-in-law did the tour.  Here's some of the strawberry fields that have just recently been planted.

As soon as the hayride was done, it started raining.  We hurried inside to the store, which is also where they had the pumpkins.  This part was different than what we're used to - they had already hand-picked the best looking pumpkins so it was pretty easy to make a decision.  We're used to piles and piles of pumpkins, which make cute pics but not great pumpkins.

The same guy who did the tour built this tractor - pretty cute.  The kids all loved it of course.


We got some fruit and veggies from their store also - loved it.


It was a really cute place - if you're around Alvin you should check it out!  We're definitely going back in the Spring to pick strawberries!

I hope Daddy carved a good jack-o-lantern for Halloween. The grandkids look great. Hope to see them for Thanksgiving. Love, Grandpa T
