I think our "Pumpkin Patch" looks quite a bit different than a lot of yours and was thinking maybe you'd like to see how we do it here in Phoenix/Scottsdale. Last weekend we visited McDonalds Ranch. They have some ranch activities and you take a hayride out to the "pumpkin patch" (I use that term lightly lol!). The boys had a great time!
Happy Fall from Phoenix (where it's still in the 90's)!
