The Great Pumpkin Patch

Out here in good old Nebraska there are farms and ranches everywhere you look. Its pretty obvious if you have driven across I-80. Corn and soybeans are pretty typical of what you will see, but there is a special farm just south of Lincoln. In a little town called Roca is a farm that grows alot of strawberries and pumpkins. Twice a year they open to the public. In the spring it's strawberry season, and in the fall it's (you guessed it) pumpkin season.

So last week we headed down south to the pumpkin patch. They really put a good show on. I have only been to the Roca farm in the spring and was very suprised at their fall setup. There is plenty to do for everyone. It is built as a small town for kids to explore and have fun. They have a few haunted houses, to fit the needs of all age groups. A petting zoo, slides and bikes to ride, a life sized game of Candyland, and lets not forget the hayrack ride. This picture of Karli and Teagan was from the hay ride, I think they had fun.

Teagan was so excited when she got home from school with Karli. The first thing she told me, as she jumped around the kitchen, was that we were going to the pumpkin patch. She could hardly wait to get going. Once we were there she wanted to see and do everything. Except the monster mash band, I think the mummy and skeleton freaked her out a little bit.

Her Grammy Schmidt gave her a pair of Halloween pajamas, she loves the shirt so much that she has to wear it every chance she gets.

Happy Halloween everyone.
