Our tradition is to take the grand kids to the pumpkin farm each year. The first year Dakota was still crawling and Jacob was hardly talking, little Dayton wasn't even born yet!
Back then Jacob, middle guy driving, was all about the tractors. At that time he was very upset that there was no real motor in this wood version. Dayton's about the same age Jacob was at that time, he is more into the train.
It was pulled by a real tractor...They had a wooden version and he climbed all over that for a long time.
My husband was a good boy and didn't complain about the cost or there being too many people. I told him to stop and be little for a while and then he'd see how wonderful this place is...he did and he had fun! Every once in a while you could hear a kid throwing a fit, a parent trying to drag the kid some place other than were they wanted to be! I made up my mind a long time ago that I wasn't there for me, I was there for the kids and I guess experience has taught me to just let the kids have fun no matter how much of a place they see.
The straw hill was now in a small outbuilding including a slide, I will show those pics off later. Also, pictures of Jacob feeding a goat, the kid has never ever gone inside the petting pen, at least not with us...he did it this time. The little boys were almost too brave.
This picture is after the horse ride. The horses are a type of draft horse, two of them pull a wagon and go around a pond. After this year the two horses will retire. After this picture we headed for the apple cider donuts, yum!
