10-06-2012 GSMR It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown

A couple years ago we took a little trip down to the Great Smokey Mountain Railway and took a little train ride to a pumpkin patch. Elijah was nervous about riding on the train but was thrilled when he got to see a family of turkeys as we rode through the beautiful October scenery.
The train ride was filled with the words from the story and the kids were given holiday themed treats and hot cocoa in souvenir travel mugs. Lucy, Charlie and Snoopy were awaiting our arrival waving to the kids. There was bouncy houses, wagon rides, apple bobbing and marshmallow roasting along with other fun activities. After a little trick or treating and grabbing a pumpkin from the patch, it was "all aboard" to complete our trip.
