Since we are in full swing in the fall season and only a couple of weeks until Halloween, we grabbed our pumpkins last week and headed to the “patch”, that is Nelson’s Pumpkin Patch, which is only about 18 miles west of Grand Forks.   This is an annual day for my family, but we were pleased with all the new additions inclusing the Pumpkin Patch Corn Maze, more games, animals and more fun! This was the first year we dared to enter the Haunted House, and we were not disappointed!   Check out our pics, and grab your pumpkins for a great day at the “patch”!
