Pumpkin Patch Fun
Scarecrows, corn rows, pumpkins on the vine. Leaves curl, wind swirls, time to pick the cutest pumpkin in the patch.
Every year since King and Marshaun have been born, I take the boys to the pumpkin patch. We look forward to this season every year. I always say I want to try a different patch but we always end up at the same one, which isn't bad at all. We actually really enjoy it! I was suppose to finish this blog so long time ago. I know many of you have enjoyed the pumpkin patch already this year. We went twice this year. The first time I had all boys and I didn't take any pictures. We ended up going back the following weekend and I only had King and Marshaun. This time I took a lot of pictures to share. I was so upset that I did not get any with Rico and Zech. Most pumpkin patches stay open until the end of October. What's wonderful about the one we go to, you can go back around Christmas and cut down your own Christmas tree! The boys and I haven't done this yet and probably won't this year either because I just bought an artificial tree last year so maybe next year well try a real tree.
We have such a Good time at the Yule Forest Pumpkin Patch. They have so many things that you can do. There is a kids zone, which of course is the best part, the boys loved. It consist of two big jumping pads, jumpy slides, swings, train ride, and a really fun interesting hay maze. My favorite part was the Hay ride. It was very interesting, while riding through they have every cartoon character that you can even think of and at the end of it they drop you off at a petting zoo! I am always scared of the animals because my boys love to feed them and I am always scarred that one of the animal might bite them. Of course, they always think I am tripping!! lol
Some other interesting things that they have at this pumpkin patch is the Science Center, Bee House which actually has a real bee hive in it. Puppet Shows, Pumpkin Movies, both at selected times. There is the S.T.E.M. Garden, here the boys dug for worms! It was so nasty but they had fun doing it. They have the Dinosaur Exhibit which was very interesting in learning and seeing different type of dinosaurs. Once you get finished enjoying all the activities they have a really big pumpkin patch so you can find the best pumpkin for you and your family. Finally, the two last things that I truly enjoyed was the sunflower field. You can pick a sunflower for $1 each and take them home. The food, which is always the best part of my day LOL, was the best. They normally always have two food trucks. A BBQ truck and a candy truck. It had sweets and really good homemade lemonade. Whichever you decided to pick, their food was really good and the boys enjoy it every time.
Every year we make our visit to the Yule Pumpkin Patch a family tradition for us and I pray that all families start doing the same. It is something your kids will always remember growing up. Mine kids do not let me forget when October hits. If it is Yule Forest or another one, start making it something you do yearly with your family.
