Pumpkin Patch Weekend
This weekend I was able to put four check marks on my Fall to-do list: road trip, corn maze, hayride, and pumpkin patch. I’ve already crossed off going to an apple festival. Six more to go!
My family and I took a mini road trip to a farm about an hour away from where we live. There were quite a few activities to do there such as games, a small area where you could feed the animals, live music, food, hayrides, a corn maze, and a pumpkin patch. This year there was also a mini-museum set up in one of the barns that told about the history of the farm and the area surrounding it. Since we’ve been visiting this farm for about 6 years, it was interesting to see the history behind it.
After we paid and got our wristbands we walked around to look at the cows and donkeys. We also got to see Opal, a 600 pound mama pig, and her piglets. They were so cute all snuggled up together!
This turkey had managed to get out of the fenced in area and was walking around with everybody. He didn’t mind the crowd of people at all. I guess he’s used to it by now. He was so pretty! The other turkey could not get out of the area so he’s looking at his friend in awe.
After visiting the animals and the mini farm museum in the barn, we went on a hayride.
The hayride stops at the beginning of the corn maze. This sunflower was so pretty with the bees on it! I just had to stop and take a picture.
Then we went through the corn maze, which was surprisingly quite long and took us a while to get through.
We made it without getting lost!
The maze comes out into a big field with slides on both sides and straight across on the hill. There’s also a hay tower for kids to climb on, swings, and the pumpkin patch.
After a fun-filled day we picked our pumpkins and headed out to dinner.
The sky was so pretty! It was such a beautiful day. The weather ended up being perfect after a rainy morning.
How was your weekend?
