Pumpkin Patching

We went to the TGR Exotics pumpkin patch again for the third year in a row. This year they added hay rides and camel rides in addition to the pumpkins, crafts, and assortment of friendly critters. Trinh got to pet a baby kangaroo and play with some ponies and pot bellied pigs.
It was down right impossible to get photos of the kids together in the pumpkin patch. Though we did manage to capture a picture (albeit blurry) of them both protesting at having to have their picture taken!!
We went with her bestest friend Olivia. These two girls met at school and they play so sweetly together.
Trinhity painted a total of 5 pumpkins. All of them were COVERED in glitter!
Trinhity had her first camel ride. She was pretty nervous and was glad Daddy was there.
We also went to the nighttime pumpkin patch this year as well. A super special thanks to BaBa for taking care of Tai so that we could go to this event. She got to meet all of the animals again at the ranch. This year, they had a new albino baby joey! Below is Trinhity petting an anteater.
This is a striped hyena. Yes, they keep her in the backyard. Fortunately, she is a vegetarian!
This is one of many sloths who live at the ranch. Did you know sloths need to eat upside down in order to digest their food?
Dinner was catered by The Goode Company BBQ and afterwards, we roasted marshmallows and had s'mores. Mama got to come along this year and discovered the wonders of chocolate marshmallows. They made the experience such a kid-friendly one. The table was decked-out with fabulous Halloween decor and there were toys, candy, popcorn and just general good-fun for all.
