UPDATE: Liepold Farms, 11am, Sunday, October 14th. Follow the link below for directions.

-------------------------------------------------------

Moving over from the September thread.

Tomorrow is October mama's! It's pumpkin patch time!

This is where we have been going since moving to Oregon.

http://www.liepoldfarms.com/fall_fest.htm

So does anyone want to go? I was thinking on a Sat., or Sun so Dad's can go. I know not only does my DH like to go, but those of us with more than one small child benefit from the extra hand!

I have something going on on the 6th, but I can do the 7th or the weekend of the 13th/14th. I will repost this on the Oct. thread tomorrow.

Sorry, to hear you can't make it. Those darn jobs. They sure can be annoying. Yeah, I will definately plan another one, but probably not until late Oct. or Nov. because we are going out of town in 2 weeks.
