Picture Pick FriYAY: Pumpkin Patch

Last week our family visited a local pumpkin patch. I’m amazed at how much there is to do at a pumpkin patch now. I remember going as a kid and there were normally animals and pumpkins and that was about it. Now there are slides, and duck races (rubber AND real ducks)! The corn mazes are huge and elaborate. Some scary, some educational. There are corn kernel pits and blow up jump toys. It’s wonderful that people have made pumpkin patches so trendy, they are the greatest thing to happen for local farmers since the novelty of Christmas tree farms.

Here are some pictures from our pumpkin patch adventure this year. Miles and I took turns with the camera so these pictures are a mix of our varying talent.

Picture Pick FriYAY: Lyden Fair, Washington

I know it’s early for fair season, but I was going through old pictures and had to share some of the photos that Miles took back in 2009 when we went to the Lynden Fair in Lynden, Wa.

I’m a sucker for all things fair. My inner-child comes squealing out during fair season.

I just love alpacas. They crack me up.

My dahlias are just starting to break through the soil. I can’t wait for them to bloom!

Happy FriYAY!
