We have a lovely little organic farm that does an awesome pumpkin patch just a way from our house. We went last year and I think it got even better this year.
Growing up, we went to a few and I can remember doing to corn maze, which was always super fun. When we arrived, Paisley almost hyperventilated looking at all the fun things to do. She didn’t even know where to run first when we walked in to the main area. It was good to see, we knew she would love it since last year she was barely walking. She was surprisingly comfortable with the animals and exited to touch them. We went with some friends and all the kids had a great time together.
We had to secretly put the “wristband” on her ankle because she would not accept the pretty bracelet that they had given her. Luckily, she forgot about it soon enough.
Last year I forgot my camera and I’m so glad that I remembered this morning. We went with some friends that had kids as well so it was a really good time. I’m so glad that this will be a new tradition we have for our family. We loved roaming around the farm, jealous of all the amazing produce and flowers they had grown. I admired the sunflowers and Andrew talked with our friends about how to get a garden going.
The jumping pillow was absolutely hilarious. The other kids quickly took their shoes off and joined in the fun, while Paisley got on and was being bounced around screaming and looking like a limp noodle. A Daddy intervention really did not make her much braver.
We played through naptime so I knew she would be exhausted!
I loved this tiny cherry tomato maze. She knew what they were right when she saw them because she has been picking them from Mamu & Papa’s garden for a few months now.
After spending less than 4 hours there, we were exhausted. When we got back into the car, we were shocked to see it was only 2pm and we wanted to crawl into bed and take a nap. One last thing to do was ride the tractor out to the patch and get our family pumpkins. She loved this part as she explored the patch for a good pumpkin, tripping over just about every vine she encountered and getting right back up without complaint.
We had a really good time, and can’t wait for next year!
