I must have heard that phrase a thousand times yesterday. Definitely a good sign. I can highly recommend the Elgin Pumpkin patch. www.elginchristmastreefarm.com
I know there are several Pumpkin patch activites in the area – but this one came highly recommended and I can see why – we had a great time.
The obligatory photo-op.
There was certainly no shortage of activities. Hay rides, face painting, hay maze, pony rides, live music, and rubber ducky races- more on that later.
We almost had Mommy convinced to take this little guy home.
Now, the rubber ducky races. Pretty ingenious. They had a series of PVC pipes set up with an old-fashioned water pump at the top of the pipes. You picked out a duck, pink of course, and the faster you pumped the water, the faster your ducky moved.
It was all fun and games until a competitor showed up, then CB went into her “PaPa on the back nine” mode. The girl’s a grinder…
Eyes on the prize.
From there, it was on to the face painting.
Since it is close to Halloween, CB opted for the Christmas tree…
A little break in the action for CB to tend to the “Back 40″
No pumpkin patch would be complete without a visit from “The Great Pumpkin”
All in all a great experience, and we even got a preview of our christmas tree. We’ll definitely be back in December
