Schaake's Pumpkin Patch

On Saturday we spent the day with my sister-n-law and her family along with two other couples and their families. We all had such a nice time. It was so nice to be with family and friends! We started the day off with lunch then we all headed over to the pumpkin patch. When we got there we took a hay rack ride out to the pumpkin patch. We all jumped off and started the search for the perfect pumpkins. This was our first experience at a pumpkin patch-so we were not as rehearsed at picking them, but we did pretty good. Lauryn found a small one that was just her size though she insisted on calling it an apple! There were several activities to do there, like a maze and a pumpkin sling shot. They also have a little barn full of crafts and homemade goodies. They had several booths set up selling roasting ears, kettle corn, and slushies (which were really good and only $.75). Lots of fun!!! After that, we all went back to relax, watch football and eat dinner. It was long overdue for us to get together and we had such a good time!
For some reason, blogger is not letting me label the pictures. You probably recognize our girls and the two other beautiful girls are Jordan and Rachelle, our nieces. My sister-n-law Kim is in the red shirt holding Lauryn and the little boy is Tim and Holly's little guy, Ethan. I think that covers all the pics on here! Thanks for checking in!
