Pumpkin Farm!

Daddo took JJ and I on a surprise trip today.  All we were told was be ready by 9:15am and wear sneakers.  Around 10am we arrived at Evergreen Farms in Elgin, TX, October headquarters for pumpkin-themed fun! They offer a Pumpkin Hunt, Pumpkin Launcher, Pumpkin Maze, Pumpkin Golf, Pumpkin Pond, Pumpkin Train, Pumpkin Pump, and Pumpkin Spinner.  We did the age-appropriate stuff and JJ loved it there.  His favorites were being pulled by the tractor (he kept saying "chugga choo-choo"), hunting for mini-pumpkins, and riding the "train" (3 carts pulled by a tractor around the farm).  And, of course, he was excited to pick out a pumpkin to take home, in addition to the two mini-pumpkins he acquired on the pumpkin hunt.  Lots of pictures below!  We capped off the excursion with a bbq lunch at Meyer's Elgin Smokehouse, allegedly the best bbq in Elgin (a town with probably 2 bbq restaurants).  Yum!
