Although our trip was cut a bit short last week, we still had loads of time to do lots of fun things while visiting the grandkids. Of course we had to take in a Pumpkin farm, being mid October how could we dare not do that.
We made sure to find one that had a wide variety of pumpkins, all shapes and sizes. Big ones, little ones, orange ones, yellow ones....
And even some that were a bit funky looking. I still have not figured out what was on the outside of this one.
There was a petting zoo with plenty of animals to play with.... such as goats...
Cows, lammas, pigs, lambs ....
Your occasional chicken hiding among the pumpkins trying to find a little peace to lay a few eggs
We even found old Tom Turkey strutting about.
Of course we could not resist playing a game of checkers, especially when the board was so big.
And climbing all over the many hay bales that were scattered everywhere was a must. It seemed like everyone wanted to be king of the mountain.
And what farm doesn't have a multitude of left over tractor tires just piled up together? It still amazes me sometimes at the simplicity of things that can make a kid happy.
Of course a walk through the corn maze was a must.
Although he was too little to make the trip through the maze, Nathan found other things to occupy his time while his brother and sister were away. This little bunny was his best friend.
He also enjoyed sitting with the many pumpkins and looking cute.
Yet as the day passed there was a bit more time for family photos
Even one of farmer Vincent and his pet lamma and billy goat.
By then everyone was getting a bit tired and ready to leave.
Riding home we all felt very much like these two little bunnies. All tuckered out and ready for a well deserved nap.
