Our day at Vala's in NUMEROUS pictures, backwards. If you REALLY care (but why would you, really? I mean, I don't) you can go down and work your way up.
Trying for a good shot...did not succeed.
This is the best picture I've ever captured of one of my kids with a pumpkin and I try EVERY year.
Little babies on a BIG chair.
The big kids on the BIGGER rocking chair.
The escape artist goat. Apparently it can jump off a bridge to get where the humans are. It really liked Dahly
Too Cool For You
I am so glad I got to meet/hang out with Dahly...she is so fun.
Pedal pushers...like my GHETTO seat belt for Ethan? That's right...it's my Posh Papoose Baby Sling!
On the train ride around Vala's
The kids chose to ride in the red caboose on back.
Give him a bottle and he's a happy camper.
This was so sweet. Nate was holding Jack's hand as they walked to the BIG slide. Jack loves Nate.
Brennan and Isabel
Jessica and Ethan after picking the perfect pumpkins.
Brennan's perfect pick (even if it is a bit green)
All the MOM's...I do believe this is the largest turnout for a paying event we've ever had!

We had a great time at Vala's Pumpkin Patch...if you live anywhere close by, I recommend going. This is our third fall here in Omaha but our first trip...so worth it!
Almost everything is "free" (though admission is a tiny bit steep, if you don't go as a "field trip" which is what we were) and very entertaining for kids of all ages. I paid $20.50 for us to get in and we left with 6 apples, 2 pumpkins, a free train ride (usually like $2.50 each), the satisfaction of petting goats, sheep, camels, and donkeys, and 145 pictures. We also left with a bag of delicious kettle korn popcorn (hello, it is butter and caramel flavors mixed...I ate half the bag while watching the Ultimate Cake Off on TLC...my mom's friend is the one who won!) and two small apple crisps, one for me and one for our pediatrician who is preggers and we happened to be seeing her for flu shots after our trip.
So, just go. It's fun. I promise.
