We took Ada to the Pumpkin Farm again this year this past weekend. I was a little underwhelmed this year. It was a little expensive to get in. Ada was free but Dan and I were $7 each, and we weren’t doing anything but walking around. Then we had to pay another $13 for a pumpkin which I thought was a lot. There were tons of activities and food, but again nothing was included and we would have had to fork out more money for carney rides, food and drinks. Sorry kid. Ada enjoyed the pumpkins of course, as she is still obsessed with them this year. She also liked the animals in the petting farm. The inside barn is all decorated with halloween stuff that you can buy. They have some pretty crazy, scary halloween displays for people who like to go all out with decorating. It started to rain a little, so we ducked in there to walk around for a little bit, but Ada was completely terrified of most of the stuff in there and wanted to leave. So we just headed out!
I think next year we will skip the Great Pumpkin Farm that is getting a bit over-commercialized and we’ll make the drive out to the real farms like the one from my last post (link). It was so much more fun! It did help that the weather was much better that day, but in general, it was a better experience.
