Visiting the Pumpkin Patch!
Every year, we have a tradition in our family of picking our pumpkins at the Pumpkin Patch. We go to Remlinger Farms, about an hour away from where we live. At this farm, they also have a carnival with kiddy rides, a hay maze and hay jump, bounce houses, a petting zoo, and more! We went last Friday and my husband even took the day off work to go with us (thanks honey).
My boys had so much fun! Sam wandered away once (actually running away towards a bounce house with no fears at all). Dallen wandered off twice (the second time I was almost in tears because he’s so little and I didn’t want somebody to walk off with him). Amazingly, I was the one that began to panic in both instances, while my husband remained completely calm! I just don’t get it!
Plus, I thought it would be great for photo opps that the kids wear orange shirts to Remlinger Farms. I was grateful to see that not many people had on orange shirts at the beginning of the trip. It wasn’t until Sam and then Dallen wandered off that I realized that there must have been other moms with the brilliant idea of having their kids wear orange shirts – because they were everywhere!!
1 nursing, 2 child wanderings, 7 rides, 5 hours, and 5 pumpkins later…..we were ready to head home. The boys had a blast and George and I had tons of fun as well! I couldn’t believe how big the pumpkins were that we got to take home. Last year, they let us take small Sugar Pumpkin sized ones home! We’ll definitely be going back again next year!
I was not compensated in any way to write this post. This is family fun on The Mommy-Files and that’s it!!
