So we celebrated fall with a trip to the pumpkin farm. We haven't been able to do this for a couple years because of us living in Alaska so it was fun to reintroduce the family to fall fun. The kids have definitely gotten big in the years since we have gone.
We started off the day with a cow ride. I don't know how Goobers actually manage to fit into the car but he did and they were able to take a trip behind a tractor around the farm and had a lot of fun.
You can't go to a farm without a ride on a pony. I am pretty sure that Giggle's pony wanted to ride him rather than carry that big kid. Definitely his last year on a pony ride. I was pretty sure Sassy was going to have a heart attack, she was so excited to ride the ponies.
So the bigger boys couldn't ride the ponies so they went and conquered the hay pyramid and started making a competition out of who could get to the top the quickest.
And then there was a corn maze. This maze was huge. And shaped like big foot, which was their theme. We split into teams of two; Jack & Thud, Sassy & Giggles , and me and the Manchild. The manchild and I didn't take long to get through a portion of the maze, although he had to protect his head against the leaves, lol. Well one of the things we didn't realize was that not only was big foot their theme but they also had one that would roam around scaring people. Thankfully we were never approached, between my apprehension of masks and his skittshness there probably would have been a big foot beat down. :) BUT the children were not as lucky. Seems the youngest team heard the hollering and decided to make their own dang exit out the back of the maze and trekked around it to find us. The older boys came face to face with big foot, which scared the poo out of them.
After our crazy run through the corn maze, we took a break and picked out pumpkins and ate caramel apples, what an amazing lunch. Then went on the other activities. This hay maze was much more my style and was beautiful to boot.
Another family favorite was the corn cannon. Each of the family got two shots of the cannon, they all loved it!
The whole afternoon was a lot of fun. To finish off our time the kids got to do a hay jump and the manchild and I were able to relax and watch them. I have to say that I will gladly spend money doing something like this as a family! It is something that we will all remember.
