Pumpkin Patch 2009

***Author's note: In an effort to actually catch up on the fun things we did last year I made a list of all I want to blog about. I am going to try and go in order, we shall see how it goes.......Here is item one on the chronological list.

As I am quite anxious to actually figure out Photoshop for digital scrapbooking, I have gone ahead and made the scrapbook pages for the event. Prepare to see many of these in future postings. I figure that since I have limited time I will combine both and hopefully catch up on everything. Here's hoping......

The Pumpkin Patch is one of the kid's favorite things to do each year. Now, In Las Vegas the pumpkin patch is a little different than pumpkin patches in other states. First off, it is located in the parking lot of a casino, yep, it doesn't get more "Vegas" than that (it does have hay for ambiance and picked pumpkins to purchase, therefore making it a "Pumpkin Patch" of sorts).

Second, there are rides for the kids--go figure. It has a huge slide, a pirate ship, buckets that spin (similar to the teacups at Disneyland), swings, a "train" that goes around the pumpkin patch, a trampoline for the older kids and a petting zoo. The kids love it and it really is fun for everyone.

We have discovered that if you make reservations to go before 2 pm and get at least 10 paying kids together it is only $5 per kid for an hour unlimited. We took Madison one year at night so she could go with her daddy and we spent $20 in about 20 minutes, so needless to say, we love going with other mom's and kids.

***I think if you click on the picture it will go to full screen so you can see the pictures better and read the text. Who knows if it will work correctly though.....when I tested it I couldn't get it to, but honestly, nothing technological works for me. There is a reason I did not graduate in Computer Sciences, or engineering, or anything technologically related. It has worked in the past though, so good luck!
