Pumpkin Patch

On Saturday morning, we headed to Ganyard Hill Farm to pick pumpkins and enjoy some farm activities.  This was our second year going to this farm, and we loved it even more this year.  Now Sims is old enough to participate in all the activities like the hay mountain with slide and the hay maze.  I love that there are lots of fun things for Sims (and us) to do, but it still feels like an authentic farm.

Remember last week, when we went to the State Fair, and Sims refused to milk the cow?  Well, he had no problem milking this one. 

We also got to pick some cotton,

and walk through the kids corn maze, which wasn't actually corn.  It was sorghum.

We then graduated to the big corn maze.

We picked some corn to feed to the goats, and Sims loved playing with the corn.

We took our corn to this cute little guy.

The goats were interested in us but not so interested in the corn.

I didn't get any pictures of us in the pumpkin patch choosing our pumpkins.  I think by that time we were all ready for some lunch and ready to head home to rest up for our evening activites (the birthday party for our friends' daughter, which was also loads of fun for all of us.) 

We had a great morning at the farm.  It's the perfect way to kick off the autumnal season.

  1. Between the state fair and the pumpkin patch, you have had two really great outdoor days with Sims. It appears that the weather at the pumpkin patch was perfect for enjoying the farm sights. Thanks for sharing these fun outings with us.
