Pumpkin Patch: Vegas Style

So, me and my friend Brooke decided to go to a pumpkin patch today. We knew Vegas didn't have the best pumpkin patches (okay, let's be honest. Vegas fall stinks. It doesn't exist), but figured it would still be fun to at least get the classic "cute pictures of my baby on a pumpkin" picture.

However, it's a little harder than we thought to find a pumpkin patch. Here are our attempts this afternoon.
Pumpkin Patch #1: Some orchard. We were very excited..."oooo an orchard. How cool." Right? No not cool. Only open Tuesday, Thursday and Sat from 8 to 12. AND...from what we could see, there were random, tiny half-smashed pumpkins in this open scary field.
Pumpkin Patch #2: Deserted looking shed with lots of "Closed" signs. Same story. Not open. (looked more like a haunted house than a pumpkin patch)
Pumpkin Patch #3: I called Mike and he checked the one by my work...closed after noon. It's in a dirt lot right by an intersection.
Pumpkin Patch #4: WALMART! Yes, they are ALWAYS open and were bound to have pumpkins. Happy Halloween Colton. I hope your first pumpkin patch experience at Walmart was a good one ("unbeatable" even...see above picture)!

Hahahahhaha, you and Brooke are the best! I'm glad my Colton had a happy first pumpkin patch experience. He is so beautiful....he could be an advertisement for Walmart. You could make a fortune.
