Pumpkin Places

We decided to try a new Pumpkin Patch this year. A bit further afield (so to speak), this farm had a boat to ride, a pumpkin patch, horsey rides, a hay maze, a slide, free face painting, and a train ride with a spooky tunnel. You could not think of more things to please a two and a half and four year old if you tried. With so much excitement, it was almost possible to ignore that the pumpkin patch was a true mud pit. I'm just glad we were able to fit in a visit to this place between days and weeks of rain. 

The girls wore homemade dresses. The details on Penny's is in this post. I can't remember the name of the fabric from Lulu's dress, though I used Simplicity 1208 (without all the fancy parts) for a basic gathered waist dress. I bought it a yard and a half of the fabric off a clearance table at the craft store, as it reminded me of vintage sheets in both it's pattern and softness. I think it's by Michael Miller? I wish I had more, though I have no idea what I'd make with it.

Previous trips to the pumpkin patch include 2015, 2014, 2013, and 2012. Wow, we've come a long way.

Both dresses are lovely and they look like they had a ball!
