Pumpkin Patch #2: Appleworks

A couple of weekends ago we made a last minute decision to go to another pumpkin patch since the weather was so beautiful! So after one of Elin’s T-ball games, we went Appleworks in Trafalgar. We had such a great time. The weather was absolutely perfect. Sunny with bright blue skies but crisp enough to wear long sleeves. The perfect fall weather!

Elin wanted to immediately start looking for the perfect pumpkin. I limited her to only once since we already had quite a few pumpkins from the last patch visit.

Grayson was all smiles and enjoying the bumpy ride in his stroller as we walked him along in the patch. He loves to be constantly moving!

After picking out the perfect pumpkin, we took non-hay filled wagon up to the kids area. We had to wait quite a long time to get on the wagon, but once we were on it, the ride was so nice because it was a little longer than your typical ride. Elin loved going around the large pond on the property.

Once we got up to the kids area, Elin quickly spotted a train and pony rides. I told her she could do both so we got in line for the ponies first.

Elin loves the ponies and I had a hard time getting her to hold on with two hands because she wanted to pet the pony with one hand the whole time. She could have ridden them all afternoon if they would have let her.

Then she eagerly waited for the train to come back and it never did! Apparently it ran out of gas and so they had to stop the train rides. What a bummer!

I just love this pic of Grayson smiling up at Elin. He loves it when she comes over to his stroller to be silly which she does a lot!  They had so much fun at the patch that we decided to hit up a different patch the next day. I’ll share those pics soon!

  1. Such cute kids and great photos! Our pumpkin patch experience was less than stellar this year – I’m hoping we get another shot at it this weekend and actually get to pick out pumpkins and go on a hayride. Fingers crossed!

  2. That picture of the two of them cracking up is just the sweetest! I love that perfect fall weather. We currently have gloomy wind.
