The Pumpkin Patch

This weekend was quite busy for us. One stop was the Pumpkin Patch. It is a beautiful place. All week I was giddy with excitement over how awesome this outing was going to be and how wonderful the pictures were going to be. It was an awesome outing and we did get some cute pictures. It's just that Ziva wasn't in a smiley mood so we didn't get a lot of "happy" pictures. She also decided that she was terrified of mums. So all the pictures I had planned for her in front of all that color didn't turn out. I do have a couple of her crying in front of the mums and trying to get away. She did take to the hay, of course, but she did not care about the pumpkins nor looking/smiling at us. She did enjoy us topping off this outing with fried chicken, butter beans, homemade mac-n-cheese and corn bread but more on that later.

Left alone in the pumpkin patch...playing with hay.


The only smile the whole day.
And her obsession with hay begins.
(Yes we stopped her from eating it.)
Hey there's hay here.
"Look Mom, down there is some hay."
Ziva is defiantly not comfortable about something in this picture.

Not so sure about the potato vines either.

The pumpkin patch is actually this farmers market/restaurant kind of place. It has been voted number one restaurant in this area. They serve fried chicken and the fixin's. It was awesome. Ziva even thought so. I know some of you are going to freak out. Ziva wanted to try the fried chicken and we let her. We were very careful. She loved it but wouldn't eat it the way we wanted her too. Still she managed to get enough to be happy. She also took to the butter beans and mac-n-cheese. But it was the corn bread that really suited her. She took one little bite then tried to shove the rest of it into her mouth (see picture below). Between eating hay, fried chicken and corn bread, we all got to stuff our tummies. It was a very nice afternoon.

Awww...she's sharing.


Ziva says southern food "rocks!"

Ziva loves animals! They make her so happy. I guess she did smile more than once.
