Liberty Mills Farm

Friday afternoon, we took the boys to the first pumpkin patch of the season. We have several more pumpkin patch trips planned for the next month. We were the only ones there, so they weren't running the hayride, but the boys still had a blast. Greg stayed with Evan and I stayed with Carter, so the boys were able to roam around and do what they wanted.

I took a ton of pictures (which is why I didn't include it in my weekend recap post) This pumpkin patch was fun, but out of the ones that we are planning on going to, this one had the least to do. I got this many pictures of my least favorite one, you can only imagine how many pictures I'm going to get of pumpkin patches and hayrides this season. You've been warned--tons of fall posts and pictures are coming. ;)

Carter wanted to explore everything when we first got there and loved checking out the tractor. He kept saying "ride, ride". :(

He gets confused and thinks green riding lawn mowers are tractors, too. I can totally see why he'd think that.

Carter saw this bucket of mini pumpkins and said "Balls!" and picked one up and threw it. Oops. After I explained they were pumpkins, he seemed to understand.

Evan loved the mini pumpkins.

Evan loved playing with the mini pumpkins and reorganizing them.

A fun hay tunnel for kids to climb through.

The toddler hay maze.

They had 3 different corn mazes, but we only went through the "easy" one. Here's Evan leading the way.

Carter going through the hay tunnel.

There was a huge mound of hay for the kids to climb on and the boys played on that for most of the time we were there.

Evan loved falling through the hay and then yelling "stuck!"


The boys loved picking up hay and throwing it on us.

Evan learned that he could scoot down the hay like a slide. That boys will turn anything into a slide.

We had such a good time. The boys were worn out when we got home. The farm was only about 20 minutes from our house. We have 3-4 more that we want to go to before Halloween. 3 of them we went to last year and a new one that I want to try. Greg and I have gone to a pumpkin patch/corn maize almost every year since we started dating. We love them and are really excited to take the boys now. I can't wait to do one with a hay ride, I know the boys are going to get a kick out of that this year. They loved that part last year and that was before they really started liking tractors. I love doing seasonal things with the boys and it's so fun now that they're getting older and are really starting to enjoy these things.

  1. What kind of camera do you have? I'm so jealous of all the great pictures you get. All my pictures of Aiden are cell phone pics :(
