OH. MY. GOURD. Blooms and Berries did not disappoint this weekend as we made our third annual family trip to Fall on the Farm. As soon as we unbuckled our kids, they were ready to take off and play at their favorite areas and check to see if there were new things too.
Sister bear could not help but dance a little jig with the fall themed fiddle music coming through the speakers. After her little dance, two sweet miniature goats greeted us. The kids enjoyed petting and feeding them. As usual, they ran over to the Scrambled Egg Race to determine who the Scrambled Egg Champion is. For the third year in a row, Landon crowned himself the champion. He still swears that the red path is the fastest.
They were excited to play giant versions of a couple of their favorite games. Both Guess your Scarecrow and the Connect Four games were a huge hit with my kids. Landon was excited to win Connect Four too! Ev zipped between the tire mound, spider web, Gopher Fort, duck races, swings, and big slide. Jared’s favorite part of our trip was watching her fly down the slide and then run back to climb up and do it again. Landon was thrilled to go into the corn maze. He enjoys going through the maze and punching his maze card at every station. Luckily, this year we found our way out pretty easily. Last year it took us longer than expected.
We were excited to stumble upon another storyboard trail. Ev was a good audience as Landon read to all of us “The Three Silly Goats and Their Stuff” as we made our way through the sunflowers. After finishing the story, we headed to the market for some fall treats. There are so many to choose from, but finally we settled on cookies, frozen yogurt, cider, and caramel apples and then grabbed a picnic table to enjoy them.
Before heading out, the kids needed to ride the cow train one final time. While they hit the train, I went back to the market. Pumpkins, gourds, and mums, oh my! There are so many great things to choose from. It was hard to decide what to buy to decorate my front porch.
My family highly recommends a trip out to Blooms and Berries’ Fall on the Farm, but make sure you set aside time for all of the fun! We spent over two hours there enjoying everything they have to offer. Fall on the Farm runs until October 31. Check out the website for hours and pricing. The purchase of a wristband gets you access to all of the fun Blooms and Berries has to offer. http://www.bloomsandberries.com/check-out-our-fall-fun-festival/
