pumpkin patch


I've always wanted to go to a pumpkin patch and add it to our fall traditions but we just never got around to it. This year I added it to our 13 Days of Halloween list so we had to go. 
And it was all sorts of hilarious. 

Elijah had a blast and it's definitely a magical, fun place for a little boy. 
But for the parents? Disappointment. 

Adam even mentioned how this place was going to look like a lot more fun in pictures than it really was. But Elijah had fun and thought it was one of the coolest things ever so worth it right?? 

We played on the "blob," 
went through the corn maze,
rode the train 
{paid extra, lame}, 
rode the pedal bikes, 
played on the slide, 
saw the animals 
[poor animals!], 
and raced through the giant cow-painted tires 
[after which Elijah tripped and scratched his knee and hasn't stopped talking about it]. 

But besides the skinned knee, I think it was a pretty good trip for the little one. 
We'll how it goes next year...

Well your little dude looks like he had so much fun!! We went to a pumpkin patch a couple weeks ago. Actually just walked around the patch and didn't buy anything. How lame is that?!?! My husband is from California and had never been to a corn maze before. I think he had the most fun of all. ;)

Love it! I tried to get Joe to play on the "blob" at Thanksgiving Point, but he wouldn't have it... :P
