Faulkner Farms Pumpkin Patch

One of my favorite things about fall is the pumpkins. I love taking the kids to a pumpkin patch. There is a famous one nearby that we had not yet been to, so I decided to take them to visit this year. I was a little worried that Wesley and/or Andrew might think that they were getting too big for such childish activities, but they were still willing to go. We had a great time: pumpkin scavaging, bale mazes, sunflower mazes, hay ride, funnel cakes, bale climbing, and even a pumpkin launcher. Seriously, this guy created a pumpkin launcher, which shoots pumpkins into the air, and then we observe how it crashes and splatters. The boys, of course, loved this!

The pictures listed first are the winners of our pumpkin scavage. Andrew found the ugliest pumpkin; Brooke found the biggest, and Wesley found the smallest pumpkin.

Love those pictures! They all look like they had fun - AS ALWAYS - I wish I could have joined you. Evidently Gary must have "outgrown" the pumpkin patch!

Michelle, your kids are so cute. I love that pic of Brooke jumping across to the other bale of hay. How neat, too, a pyramid made out of bales of hay! My kids would have like to have seen that. Hope you and your family are doing well.

No one should outgrow any pumpkin patch. There is a kid in all of us.

What fun they were having. W looks like he is holding an acorn squash.

What are they eating?

I love the pic of Wesley Holding his pumpkin then in the back ground you see brooke hugging hers! The pic of Wesley and Andrew is cute too. I always love going to the pumpkin patch and apple orchard.
