The boys have a lot of "Firsts" coming up! We took them to the pumpkin patch for the first time yesterday with our best friends, Cindy & Andrew and their kiddos. We all had a great time and enjoyed a beautiful fall day. The boys love watching the trees rustle around in the wind and while they napped in the stroller we boarded a 2.5 mile train ride through the (empty) fields at the Kirtlan's Silverbend Pumpkin Patch in Clarksburg, CA. As far as pumpkin patches go, I was pretty disappointed in this one as far as kids' activities but it was gorgeous outside, they had country music playing, live blacksmiths (working on iron crafts) and employees dressed in western wear. The best part of this pumpkin patch was their real, full sized, functioning train that circled one of the farm's fields which was included with the $7/person admission fee. With that said, everything else still cost money: pumpkins, balloon clown creations and drinks. I think everyone had a nice time overall though and afterwards we all went to a delicious chinese restaurant for an early dinner. YUM.
Here are the boys' first pumpkin patch pictures ...
