Today we spent the day at the Louisburg Cider Mill and the KC Pumpkin Patch with family. I was in Squash Heaven, of course, and brought home way too many. We started in the morning with the Cider Mill. Adorable Baby Niece couldn't get over how they squished up the apples to make the cider, she kept making us go back into the building to watch the machine.
Emma found some pumpkins that were just her size.
After a tasty lunch (thanks Grandma!) we headed over to the KC Pumpkin Patch in Gardner. It was like, a little Pumpkin amusement park. They had a barrel train, lots of slides, a "haunted barn" (which was a little silly, but still fun in a kooky kind of way), a petting zoo--oh yeah, and there was a pumpkin patch too. The best part though, was the PUMPKIN CANNON.
Did I mention that I was in squash heaven? There were all kinds of gourds and different shapes and sizes of pumpkins. Some year when we have more space (and a big truck) I think we'll have to go back and get a giant pumpkin. But for now we settled on this one for a regular pumpkin.
