Pumpkins Were Picked

Sunday morning we rolled out of the house bright and early at 10am toward the Chesterfield Berry Farm. Our  goal was to get Kaden a pumpkin and partake in their Harvest Festival.  Once there our first order of business was a hayride over to the pumpkin patch to pick out the large gourd we will be carving later this month.  Kaden seemed more occupied with his wristband until the pumpkins actually came into view.  Then, as you can see from the picture above, they were all he could talk about.

Pumpkin in hand we went back to the farm proper where Kaden and I faced off against Crystal in a duck race.  She won, but it was close.  Then it was on to bunnies, chickens, goats and cows. Kaden loves animals so it was a treat to see so many. We followed the animals with paintball target shooting and a ride on a tractor train.  At that point we were getting very close to lunch, but decided to brave the corn maze before filling our bellies.

We got lost more than a few times and some of the 35 questions seemed a little unfair, but it was a bunch of fun being in maze that just wasn't hay bails stacked up.  Lunch was hot dogs for Kaden and I  and BBQ, slaw and beans for Crystal.  All for the ridiculously low price of $7 total for the three of us.  With a $3 pumpkin and free admission with coupons we spent a grand total of $10 for a whole morning of fun.  An event we will definitely be going back to in the future. The rest is in the pictures.
