Arizona Pumpkin Patch---MacDonalds Ranch

This past weekend we went to a Pumpkin patch in Scottsdale. It was at the MacDonalds Ranch which is a pretty big ranch with lots of horses. They had a petting area for the kids to get up close with lots of different animals. There was a hay ride that took us out to get our pumpkins that only cost $6. Which isn't too bad for a pumpkin. Also both of my cute kiddos got to ride a pony for the first time. There were sack races and a hay maze that the kids were involved in but I didn't get pictures of them. Over all, we had a fun time.

Here are Justin and Sariah petting the horses. Justin really is a great big brother, he loves to get Sariah to smile when ever he is near. They are so lucky to have each other!

Justin was not afraid to pick up the bunny rabbits at all. He went right in the pen and picked one up.

Sariah didn't know what to think about all the animals.

She got up close to with the bunnies and Justin.

Mr Gentle loved the bunnies!

They both loved them actually...I think we might have to get one.

I thought this baby pig and it's mama were so cute...

Shetland Pony

Laurel got to feed the pony some hay.

Now when they said pony rides I thought they would be riding a little horse but she is on a big one. Can you tell she barely fits on the saddle...her poor little legs. She kept slipping off the saddle. Thank goodness for Pops standing next to her the whole ride so I could get pictures.

Here is a front shot of little Miss and her horse.

Justin on his horse. He looks like a natural.

The helmets were a precaution....and I don't know why they just took a very slow stroll around the yard. But you never know so you got to be careful.

Little Miss Laurel on her ride.

Miss Menleigh as well.

The whole clan ready to go out to the patch to find a good pumpkin.

Justin found her this little one and she fell in love with it.

It is the perfect size.

Here they are with the perfect pumpkins! They are the cutest kiddos!!

Happy Halloween from our family to you!
