We've officially checked off two of the fall outings I posted about earlier this month which makes me feel like supermom! Yesterday, we headed to Bates Nut Farm to check out their famous pumpkin patch and take some photos of Parker because we all know he doesn't take enough photos. My friend Christina had told me that the place would be a "total fucking mess" if we didn't get there right when they open so we arrived around 9:30 AM to beat the crowds. Bates did not disappoint! The fields of Big Macs was amazing and Parker had a great time patting the pumpkins. We didn't buy a pumpkin this year because none of them were the right size/shape for the giant squid design I'll be doing but we had a lot of fun taking photos, eating kettle corn, checking out the animals and people watching. We will definitely be back next year, probably even earlier than this year because Bates was a total zoo by the time we left. It was hard to get good photos once it got crowded and the traffic was horrendous and backed up all the way to the main road (about 3 miles). Don't say I didn't warn you!
