Of course.....you already know it.....I love a visit to the pumpkin patch. And, it was no easy task to find one in our new home state that does not require an admission fee. $7-$10 per person quickly adds up in this family and we're looking at a $50+ visit before you can say pumpkin!
So, I searched and searched and then a sweet new friend clued me into the Powell Pumpkin Patch in Louisburg. About 25 minutes away and easy to find. Done!
The boys loved running through the fields.
Lainey was being a mega-brat (yes, it's possible) and didn't want to walk. She was cold, too. Our only Colorado born baby doesn't like the cold weather. Figure that one out.
OK, so she's a brat, but I do love her pouty face. And, her golden hair....pretty girl.
Since I'm not above bribes, I bought some candy at the Pumpkin Shack and gave it a try.
How cool is this? We didn't do the maze because I'm sure they would have had to fly in a search squad with me + 3 kids.....maybe next time when Blake is with us.
Very smart of me to choose ring pops as my bribe. Don't you just immediately think - pumpkin patch......corn maze.....ring pops? Yeah, me, too. No worries. We're keepin' it real.
Lovely Jack. Not a whole lot unlike last year's photo. Same shirt. Same scream.
Yes.....the ring pops were brilliant.
Can't you hear him? "Cheeeeeeese!"
Lainey gave me a sugary sweet fake smile finally.
And, just as I was about to get Jack's full attention, Carter touched her. Who still doesn't know the rules?!
OK, I kinda like this one.
The boys ventured in briefly, but stayed in sight. Very cool maze.
Children of the Corn.....Signs.....ooh.....the spookiness of a corn field. Makes me want to rent a scary movie tonight!
Everyone pried the candy away long enough to enjoy a cheese sandwich. Yum.
PS - Sass, those are Lainy Lu's jeans!
One final run through the miniature hay bale maze.....and home for naps!
Although I'm anxious to visit other great Kansas City Pumpkin Patches (Deanna Rose Pumpkin Hollow, Johnson Farms, Louisburg Cider Mill, and more), we're on a strict budget right now.
Our family's 3rd trip to Dallas since moving to Kansas awaits.....birthdays coming up.....holiday fun in a new city is just around the corner. Very happy with this patch, too.....in case you're in the area and are looking for one. Enjoy!
