|Great Pumpkin Patch, 2011.|
This year, one new person took part in the fall fun -- our new little girl, Anderson. Since the Great Pumpkin Patch is so special to JC and I we wanted to make sure to take Anderson this year to celebrate our new, expanded family.

Our new little person has completely changed every aspect of our lives. Because of this, I have a new-found appreciation for "family friendly" things. Here are a few of those things at the Great Pumpkin Patch:
-Animals! Anderson will be a "city" girl, unlike her Mom and Dad. She won't have horses, or other animals, living across the street from her house. Pigs, llamas, and chickens are just some of the farm animals that children get to see.
-Children have their own designated play areas with mazes, small trails and other displays to stimulate their interests.
-Food and drink! Once Anderson starts eating adult food, she will be able to taste some fall treats that are especially good at the Great Pumpkin Patch. Pumpkin ice cream and apple cider slushies' are just a few that will fulfill the sweet tooth.
-Sitting areas to rest and visit with family.
-Already picked pumpkins.
-Plenty of cut-out displays and other great photo locations to capture family memories. Below is some pictures from a new display, "How Tall this Fall." Miss Anderson doesn't measure up to much this year -- but I know next year will be another story.
