Trumpin' Through the Pumpkin Patch

Our trip to the pumpkin patch was kind of an epic fail in the end but one we will never forget. We went to Lattin Country Cider Mill and Farm yesterday morning with Poppi, MiMi, and GiGi. Amari was perfectly fine upon our arrival but threw a huge fit when we had to leave the goats to venture into the farm. We should have taken it as a sign but we didn't. I managed to snap one photo of him smiling while at the farm on our trip. We ate fresh apple fritters which were to die for and drank Lattin's famous hot apple cider while exploring the farmer's market and spending time together as a family. Eventually we made our way over to the petting zoo. Amari had a blast laughing at the pigs, and turkeys (which I cannot wait to eat on Thanksgiving), and feed the ducks. Our trip through the actually pumpkin patch was short lived due to Amari throwing the worlds biggest tantrum all because we said no to pumpkin kicking and pumpkin throwing. I don't know why my little boy found pumpkin kicking so amusing... Thankfully he didn't damage any pumpkins in the process. Trevor helped Amari pick out his pumpkin this year and Amari took it upon himself to pick out a mini pumpkin for his little brother even though he was a terror in the patch. We managed to miss the huge rain storm; thank goodness, but the stem from Amari's pumpkin smelled like straight "butt juice" according to Trevor Dear. =P The smell lingered in the car for a while too. Gross! We may have experienced tantrums and stinky pumpkin stems but we had a great time at Lattin Country Cider Mill and Farm this season and next year baby T will be with us!

In search of the perfect pumpkin... 
Found it with the help of Dad!
Not his pumpkin, Amari picked out a mini pumpkin for baby T. 
What a sweet older brother. =]
