Vampire on the loose!

It was another busy weekend in our household. We visited the pumpkin patch, felted our pumpkins, made yummy Spooktacular Cupcakes and watched the scary movie, Drag Me to Hell.

We visited the Smith Family Farm and for $9 you got to do the following:

1) Visit the Petting zoo. Only there were signs up that said, please do not pet the animals, they bite. HMMMMMM
2) Visit and learn about the Indians
3) Barnyard Ho Down (You sit in a barn and sing songs, we skipped this one. It was way to hot and muggy to be in a small crowded barn.)
4) Corn Maze (We skipped this one, It was way too muddy.) We did do the kiddy hay maze though.
5) Hay Ride out to the pumpkin patch
6) Pick a pumpkin of your choosing. It can be any size, but you have to carry it yourself

Our first stop after taking a picture at the entrance, was the so called petting zoo.

I wanna ride the pony!

There was a Vampire on the loose. He was first spotted running on top of the Hay Barrels used to make the kiddy hay maze.


He tried to scare me, but he was just to cute. So during the Hay ride out to the pumpkin patch I asked him to take a picture with me.

He Happily obliged.



There were rows upon rows, upon rows and rows of Pumpkins. We even saw some of these beauties!


Out of the corner of my eye, I spotted the Vampire. Looks like he found himself a big one!


It was a really great fun day at the Pumpkin Patch. The Vampire decided he wanted to go home with us, so The BF and I figured, sure, why not!

That is one scary dude!! How much fun!!

Kimi said...

If Edward has taught us one thing it is that not all vamps are evil-gonna-rip-you-to-shreds creatures. Give peace a chance. Way to go Lisa!

Alice in Wonderland said...

WOW! This looked like a FANGTASTIC day out! I just adore little Vampires! I hope that you brought one home too along with the Pumpkin!

Ashley T said...

I LOVE the pictures and your son is soo cute as the vampire! We need to find a pumpkin patch that does all that.

And i didn't even know that Katherine had taken a episode hiatus. I thought she was gone for good! I'm glad i have you around to tell me these things! LOL. I am super ready for the new episode that I can't even sit still!

Emmy said...

Well since he didn't bite you during your trip you knew he was a friendly vampire :)
Cute pictures! We are going to try and go to a pumpkin patch this weekend. I am so excited!

TwentySomethingMomma said...

How many people can say they spotted a real live vampire in broad daylight?! ;)

Frugal Vicki said...

sounds like a perfect family weekend! I am glad you had fun

Melissa said...

Oh how fun... I wish we had something like that around here... and I wish even more that the weather would get cool enough to feel like going to a pumpkin patch!!

MiMi said...

That is so cute! What a great way to get in the spirit of things! :)

Melissa said...

BTW- how was that movie, drag me to hell? Scary, gory, crepy...?

~~Mel~~ said...

Busy weekend at our house too...we got our pumpkin yesterday and will have to make time to carve it some time this week!

What a scary vampire your little guy makes! Love it!

Hi Lisa,

Thanks for you lovely comment on my blog. Believe it or not I'm am working on moving to WP so my design will be changing again. (It's torture sometimes being a creative person. We're never satisfied are we?) I'm hoping to be moving over around Thanksgiving but I'll give everyone a heads up so that if they aren't already following they'll need to bookmark it. I like your new redesign as well. Cool background.

Lisa, post the felted pumpkins. I want to see what they look like.

Look at that darling vamp!!! Was it 9 bucks a person or for the whole crew? Or pumpkin patches are very high.

thatgirlblogs said...

how weird is this: my kindergartner is there RIGHT NOW on a class field trip!

Love that last photo.

Lisa Anne said...

$9 per person. I wish all 3 of us got in for $9 total. LOL

Felted pumpkins will be posted for WED Halloween Spooktacular.

You are just going to have to be patient and wait! LOL

TwoHeartsTogether said...

I love how he wore his costume! What a great way to get more use out of it :)

BTW I love the new design

Enjoy your Monday

Kimi said...

PS...There is a little something waiting for you here So Many Kids So Little Time

kys said...

Looks like a great time! I love his costume.

shortmama said...

Looks like a fun time! They closed down the nearby farm that used to do a pumpkin patch and corn maize...sigh now I have to get pumpkins at Walmart, its just not the same!

Amy said...

I am so jealous! The pumpkin patch I went to was a complete gyp compared to yours! We didn't even get to take a pumpkin. That would have been an extra $10.

What a handsome vampire you found! It sounds like you had a ton of fun, so glad. Can't wait for the actual holiday to get here, can you?

Nikki said...

Mighty M said...

We were hoping to go to the pumpkin patch on Saturday but it was raining cats and dogs...hoping for better weather this weekend. I love the "petting zoo", how funny. Bet there were lots of disappointed kids!

Small House said...

HOW CUTE IS HE?!!!! I think he picked the perfect pumpkin!!
If I met a cute vampire like that, I'd take him home to. HAHAHAHAHAHAH WELL....only if we could skip 8th and 9th grade. AUGH!
Looks like you had fun.
