Trip to Oregon in Photos: Part 1, The Pumpkin Patch

This weekend we went to see B's sister, her husband and their children in Oregon. It was a whirlwind visit, but we had such a blast. On Saturday we went to a great pumpkin patch/farm.

Our first stop was the pumpkin launch. With each paid admission, you get to launch two pumpkins.

My nephew Oscar, 3, very seriously watching how it's done while waiting his turn:

Next we went to the pony rides.

Next we had a yummy lunch while listening to live blue grass music. Then on to the petting farm which included goats, a sheep, chickens, rabbits, turkeys, pigs, donkeys and a llama.

The next stop was the hay pyramid. If you look closely, you can see B, N, Chris and Oscar. J was up there somewhere but can't be seen in the picture:
One of our many attempts to get a good picture of all four cousins:

Next we did the pyramid maze and then took a hayride out to the pumpkin patch.

Each paid admission includes one pumpkin of any size.

So much fall farm fun!
