October is the time to visit a pumpkin patch. Sadly, it hardly feels like Fall in Texas since we've still been having 80 degree weather. But that doesn't stop me from wanting to start and continue family traditions. Since we live in the city we would have to drive a ways to visit a real pumpkin patch. Thanks to one of my friends, I found out there is a pumpkin patch in town that is only about 20 minutes from our house.
I have been wanting to take Blue Rock to a pumpkin patch all year. We went several times in Germany to a farm and it was always fun.
The pumpkin patch in the city is actually at a stone yard. They had a lot of pumpkins and a big bounce house with a big slide. It only cost $1 per person to get in, you can take as many pictures as you want, and the pumpkins are pretty reasonably priced. The entrance fee is donated to the local food bank. Blue Rock enjoyed finding the perfect pumpkin and playing on the big slide on the bounce house. I had fun on it too. Here are a few pictures from our city pumpkin patch. I think we'll plan on going there next year too.
