Pumpkin Patch

Today we took Sawyer to the Pumpkin Patch in Clanton. We started out the day meeting Meme and Dede at Backyard Burger for lunch and then we all loaded up in our car and headed there. It was such a fun experience! Sawyer is obsessed with tractors right now so he was in Heaven! They had every kind of yummy food you can imagine, pony rides, petting zoo, Indian tee pees, and huge bounce houses. A lot of these things were not in the age range for Sawyer but he sure did love checking them out. We did get to ride the "Twactor Twain" which was a John Deere tractor pulling some cars. Sawyer loved it and smiled the whole time! After all the festivities, we rode the covered wagon hay ride to the Pumpkin Patch to pick out our Pumpkins. We opted for the green and orange ones. They were unique and had a Fall touch to them and since we got two, the other one should last until Thanksgiving. We definitely started a new family tradition and we can't wait to go back next year!
