The Pumpkin Farm

We made our annual trip to Rock Creek Farm in Broomfield. We've been going there since Justin was a tiny thing! He is now 12. :)

Even though it was very windy and cold, the kids had a fun time picking pumpkins. Anabelle can hardly be seen in the background! We got 6 pumpkins, the kids and I each picked out two.

Except for a couple of school buses and cars, we seemed to be the only ones there! We are used to going on a weekend where it's more busy. This year we had to do it on a weekday since hubby works on the weekends now.

After wandering the pumpkin field, we went to the family fun area to take pictures and see the farm animals.

Justin with his head on the plate. Love his "dead" face!

Me, Justin, and Anabelle.

Hubby's hat blew off into the turkey pen!

Hello pretty white turkey.

Next we saw the piggies.

And then we visited the ducks...

and a very curious goose. This was the only animal there that was interested in people.

It seems we came at lunchtime. Anabelle loved that one of the goats was on it's knees eating.

Even the sheep cared less about smiling for the camera. I ♥ sheep!

Anabelle loves farm animals!

The cows were the last of the farm animals. Hubby named the one laying down Ground Beef. Get it? LOL.


The kids had to do all of the painted scenes. I think they were all new this year. I don't remember them being around previous years. Whoever made them did a great job! I know I can't paint this well.

Anabelle playing on the hay maze. This is the first year Justin decided not to play on it. I guess he thinks he's too old for that now.

And lastly, a picture of the view of the Rockies from the farm. So beautiful! Yes there is snow on the mountains.

Happy pumpkin time!
