Last weekend, we found ourselves with a gorgeous Saturday, and no solid plans. Since it was October, and the kids needed pumpkins for school projects, we decided it was time for our mostly-annual trip to the pumpkin patch. We all grabbed our boots, and drove up to Bi-Zi Farms in Vancouver. The kids immediately scaled and clambered all over and through the hay pyramid.
And swam in a pool of dried corn kernels.
And didn’t get lost in the hay maze.
Met some new furry friends.
Roped some plastic cows.
And launched small pumpkins towards a barrel about 30 yards away.
I actually managed to get more than half of my last pumpkin in the barrel, and got this little guy as a prize!
Then the main attraction: the hay ride.
Lucy and Will chose pumpkins they could carry to school and use in class. Becky and I chose medium-sized gourds for decorating the house.
Our last stop: successfully getting lost in the corn maze.
Until next year!
Keep those kiddos busy, they learn without ever knowing it….. and you getta have fun too. Of course I know you already knew that. Corn mazes are fun. We do at least one each yr.
