Schaefer Pumpkin Patch

Today we went to the Schaefer Pumpkin Patch in Mayflower for Morgan's 6th birthday party. We had a busy morning of taking family photos so the kids were already getting pretty tired by the time we got out to Mayflower around noon. We rode a hayride out to the pumpkin patch to pick our pumpkins and Trip had no interest in picking a pumpkin. He HAD to get up on the giant tractor and the kind driver (who, by the way, looked just like Dale Earnhardt) was happy to oblige. Then we enjoyed lunch and birthday cake and let the kids ride the "train." Ruby had a full blown fit when she didn't get to ride in the 1st cart but had perked up by the time it was over. Trip, of course, loved every minute of it and was upset when it was over. We apparently were all worn out from the day because we all 4 went home and took a nearly 4 hour nap! ........... and, yes, I am getting as much wear as possible from their matching Halloween t's.
