Falling for Pumpkins

In our quest to find the perfect pumpkins this year, we went to Hillridge Farms a couple of weekends ago where we celebrated my sister's birthday.

For $10,  you get a hayride and a pumpkin, along with entry to the giant slide, corn pit, mini zoo, mazes and hay jumps.

It's like the state fair sans all the crazy people, and much, much cheaper.

Lucy loved the pumpkins. She wanted to touch each and every one.

It is absolutely hilarious to try and get 5 children to look and smile at you. We got one to look and smile, success!

They had pig, duck and goat races too. (After the animals ran by, Lucy was equally as interested in the rocks at her feet.)

At first, I was a little apprehensive about the corn pit.

All I could imagine were fistfuls of hard corn being shoved in her little mouth. So, I had to join her in the giant pit of corn.
She was in corn-heaven and didn't try to eat a single kernel. 

And, I have to admit, it was quite relaxing being surrounded by silky kernels of corn. 
She also found a chicken she wanted to take home...
We love starting new family traditions, and will definitely be back every fall!
Where are your favorite places to go every fall?
