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.
