Howell's Pumpkin Patch

This October weather we are having is amazing! What a perfect fall. As I look out the window of the office it looks like it is snowing leaves. Last year J and I racked for 5 hours one Saturday....and then more fell.

Kelli, Mike, and I took advantage of the beautiful day Sunday and took my nieces, Emmerson and Peyton, to
Howell's Pumpkin Patch near Cummings, Iowa. J stayed back in Iowa City to compete in a Cylcocross race (he got second, wahoo!)

There were sooo many activities for the kids...and grown ups...to enjoy

our little cowgirl

off to the pumpkin patch and corn maze

the Corn Indy 500!

lost in the corn maze...

you had to put colored chalk on a finger every time you got to a check point
by the end you had 5 colored fingers

Peyton insisted on her finger being chalked as well

We told the girls they could each pick out a pumpkin.

the search was on for the BEST one, Peyton dug into the depths
at last...found them!

wait..............never mind
If you haven't yet been to an apple orchard or pumpkin patch....what are you waiting for!? Great way to get local produce and goods.
Take advantage of the best season for weather, food, and fun!
Until next time...
look good, feel good, do good
