Pumpkin Patch Fun

One of the first things we did with the girls when we came back to the states, was to get out and enjoy some good old Indiana Fall Fun.  #1 on my list of very Fall things to do, is to take the kids to a pumpkin patch.  

This farm actually had some other fun things for the kids to play on, including these HUGE wheel things that the kids could roll up and down these PVC pipe railings.  The girls raced each other, though Annika was decidedly faster.  To be fair, I'm pretty sure she has a better grasp on the concept of momentum.  

We took a hay-less wagon ride out to the pumpkin patch, and the girls were allowed to pick out any pumpkin they wanted as long as they could carry it.  Mayzie preferred to sit on hers. 

There was a hay maze, which seemed to be more of a hay tunnel to get to the maze.  Mayzie liked hiding inside, but thankfully came out without too much coaxing AND/OR mama having to come retrieve her.  

The farm also had a really great slide in the middle of a corn maze.  The slide was made out of the same material as the tubes on rails, and the girls spent a VERY looong time going up the stairs and down the slide.  Naturally, I was too busy playing to actually take any pictures.  

After the slide, the girls rode the "ponies" in the corral.  Though, as you can see in the picture, Mayzie is also having trouble with this whole gravity thing too.  

It was a really fun day out and about, and I HIGHLY recommend sunshine and loads of fresh air for getting over jet lag.  

Side Note: I do promise to get Mayzie help with gravity and momentum, especially since I was so bad at physics myself!

  1. Love the pics!

    We totally played hookey today and pulled the kids from school to go to the pumpkin patch. It was 80 degrees, sunny, and the husband was off work. Plus, damn schools owe me for the stupid strike, endless fundraising, and 44 directives on how to prepare for standardized tests. At least that's the rationalization I'm using for now.
