We love our Fall traditions...even if we have to pull 3 of our 4 children out of school to make it happen! We timed it perfectly and ended up at the patch right around lunch time. All of the field trippers were heading home, leaving us lots of space to roam and play.
We have been coming to Bishop's Pumpkin farm for 10 years. We visited the very first fall we lived in Roseville and haven't missed a trip since.
Up first, a  hayride out to the field to pick our pumpkins...right off the vine!

Up next, a visit to see the farm animals. The boys were kind of bummed that you can no longer go in to feed and pet the goats. You have to stay outside of the pen.

We have entered a new era in life/parenting. Brody was the only one who wanted to ride the train this year. Say what??? The boys felt like they were too old to ride the train. Brody convinced Tanner to ride it with him. It was so cute to see our oldest and youngest, side by side ready to ride the train. As the train began to chug away, I become teary eyed. We won't have very many more years with our whole family together for family trips to the pumpkin farm.

After you ride the train, you have to get a treat. 4 of us had a slice of homemade apple pie with ice cream and two had ice cream cones. I am ready to go back just so I can have another slice of pie!
A few more tradition photos before we headed home! It was a beautiful day at the patch and we were super excited to keep the tradition alive for another year.
