A Day at the Pumpkin Patch

A couple weekends ago we found ourselves with an empty Saturday.  Seriously, this never happens.  I've been wanting to go to a corn maze (without middle school kids on a youth group trip, that is) and do the quintessential Fall outing since Evie was old enough this year.

Our friends Greg and Alyshia were already planning a trip to Jaemor Farms the same day, so we decided to meet up with them!

Evie calls their kids Geg (Greg) and A-ree-a (Maria), or if she's in a hurry, "Margarita"


It was game day in the Fall, and we did as any good Southern family does - dress it coordinating game-day attire.

Evie was a bit apprehensive at first about the uneven terrain, but quickly got the hang of the corn maze.


Keeping up with Greg was tough work and Evie needed a little shoulder ride from Daddy.


But she made it across the finish line!

We had bought the family-fun day ticket package, or something like that, so we had access to the Farm Slide

And apple cannon. Which the girls were not too sure of


It was such a hot day!  Evie needed to sit out for a bit while the Koerner kids went on the pumpkin train ride.

 Next up was the hayride, sans hay.  It was a little dumb, but the kids had fun and it gave us some time to sit down in the shade while seeing the entirety of the farm.
Second to last stop was the pumpkin patch.  Evie helped us pick out a few pumpkins for our family.

Before the day at the farm was complete, we went inside for caramel apples and yummy treats before we went to Helen for Octoberfest and lunch.


We all agreed the kids had fun and we can't wait to go back next year, hopefully on a cooler day since we'll each have a new infant in tow!
