Pumpkin Patch

Despite the cold we bundled up this morning and drive out to the Flower Mound pumpkin patch (the original one).  Allison wore her panda suit - she calls the pants her 'lamby' pants, so cute.  We got there at 9:30 and it was fantastic - almost no crowd.  I think most people were waiting for it to warm up a little, it was about 40 degrees.  We explored the pumpkins and Allison would not sit still for a picture!  Kevin and Allison climbed the big hay pile - Allison fell and was very distressed that hay stuck to her outfit.  Allison got to bounce in a bounce house, and went down a bouncy slide at least half a dozen times since there was no line. We rode a little train around part of the property and ran into Allison's pediatrician picking out a pumpkin with her husband.  One of the things we really enjoyed was all the cardboard cut-outs.  Allison loved the 101 Dalmations, Little Mermaid, Elmo, and Winnie the Pooh.  She hugged several of them, which was just too precious.  Scroll all the way to the bottom for Star Wars photos.  We are already making plans to go back to this location for their Christmas tree farm and activities.
