When we did not make it to the pumpkin patch back in Michigan and then returned to the northwest clouded in rain I thought dreams of this years pumpkin patch visit had ended. So last week when I woke up to what appeared to be a dry day I jumped on the opportunity! It turned out to be a beautiful day and Ava had SO much fun! We walked through the patch where she picked out her very own pumpkin. She was VERY sure of her choice! She got to see all the farm animals, laughed at the noisy pigs (and made pig noises of her own) and petted the kittens and bunnies. The kittens were her favorite. She kept going back saying, “mama they are so cutie!” “LOOK!” One of the most exciting adventurers however, was a room with 2 feet of corn cornels for children to play in. She had a blast! And just when you thought there could not be any more pictures of Ava here are more….
