Long time, no blogging!
I have been so busy with work lately, and life, and oh-uh starting a second business. (More or on that in the future!)
I wanted to post up some pictures from a recent trip to the pumpkin patch. I haven’t been, and neither has Bruce, so I decided that I wanted to go this year. I just wasn’t sure when or where.
Our Pontiac Bonneville died recently, and our mechanic didn’t think it would be cost effective to repair it. So unfortunately we had to scrap it, and we purchased a new used car. (New to us, not any newer than the Bonneville lol.) When the car went into the shop I rented a car for the week, and we were lucky to pick up the new car (a 95 Ford Mustang) within the same week. So during weekend I had the rental car to myself! (We’re still a one car family. Hoping to buy a NEW car in the next year or year and a half.)
I looked online for nearby pumpkin patches and found out about the one at Uesugi Farms. I was excited to see that they had some fun rides, so off we went.
Inside the park they have a giant blow up pumpkin! Surrounding that are rides, some places to eat, and of course the corn maze and pumpkin patch.
We got tickets for the train and the corn maze. Since it was later in the day I thought we’d just try two rides and then see how we felt. The lady working at the ticket booth was really pleasant and warned us about the long lines.
First thing we did was get a snow cone to share and get in line for one of the trains. That ended up working out perfectly!
After we got off the train we found some food trucks and had some great fried chicken and garlic fries. Then we headed into Kayla’s corn maze. We almost got pretty lost in there! Luckily they gave us a map and we were able to find our way back out. When I checked the map I laughed really hard, because the corn maze was cut into Halloween shapes like witches and jack-o-lanterns.
After getting out of the corn maze we decided to head over to the pumpkin patch. In the center of the pumpkin patch is a huge pyramid of pumpkins. They have “King and Queen” chairs that you can take pictures in, but there was a long line so I just took some pictures of Bruce on a different side of the pyramid.
Bruce was amazed by all the pumpkins!
We walked around the patch for a bit and admired all the pumpkins. Bruce really wanted to take some home, but I didn’t want to lug a huge one home. We ended up getting a couple of tiny ones.
They had a lot of different kinds. They even had related…squash!
They also had pumpkins that were different colors. Most of the white ones were gone already, but I really liked these blue/purple ones too.
Inside the pumpkin patch they also had some activities for kids like a pile of hay bales that they could climb all over, and cute things to take pictures with. Bruce was a big fan of the hay bales. I think he liked them more than the paid rides…
We had so much fun at the pumpkin patch! I think we will go early in the season next year and enjoy all of the rides, plus take home some special pumpkins.
