Pumpkins, Donuts, Cider & More
We had so much fun on our visit to the Pumpkin Patch this year! It was a beautiful day and we were able to do everything on our list! We came after eating lunch at home and it worked perfectly for everyone's schedules. I guess one baby fell asleep at the end but that's ok.
We started with the farm animals and there were so many this year! We saw goats, pigs (giant hogs and tiny piglets, turkeys and even pet two ponies!
Nut House and PLayground
Next up was play time! They ran into the Hazelnut "Nut House" which is just a room with about a million hazelnuts to run around in. They love this part even though the entry is a little spooky and our middle daughter was a little hesitant at first. I went in with her to show her it was fun. Next up was the big slide and the boat which weren't crowded since it was right at lunch time. Another perk of eating an early lunch before coming.
PUMPKIN PICKING TIME
After the kids played their hearts out, we went to the fields so each kiddo could pick their very own pumpkin. It was kind of funny watching them... one of the four year olds couldn't pull one off a vine and gave up. They all wanted their pumpkins to be unique which was cool. Some picked tall, others picked cinderellas and we ended up with a nice variety of unique and beautiful pumpkins!
They had six or so jumping houses (not my favorite part because they were crowded) so we made a pitstop on our way to the donuts and cider.
While I waited in a little line for the donuts and cider, the big kids rode the tricycles around- so fun!
Donuts and cider
These are just the best donuts you'll ever eat! They make them fresh and they're still warm. We sat down and indulged under the shade of some pretty apple trees and then headed home. It was a simple, fun and delicious time. Pumpkin Patch Day is one of my favorite days of the year!
