Pumpkin Patch

I LOVE this time of year!  Fall is so much fun.  You can get away with wearing shorts or jeans most days and it's no longer ridiculously hot.  It's also time for the holidays to start.  Halloween followed quickly by Thanksgiving and then Christmas and New Years!  There's always something fun going on.

Last Saturday we took advantage of the beautiful weather and went to Apple Jack's Pumpkin Patch.  I researched all the area pumpkin patches and was blown away by the admission prices in addition to the costs to do other activities.  Those other activities being all the fun things my kids would see and want to do.  Being a family of six on one income means we don't have much of an entertainment budget.  So we make those dollars S-T-R-E-T-C-H as much as possible. 

We came across Apple Jack's in Augusta and admission was only $6.  That covered all the activities (kiddie train, duck races, giant slide, jumping pillow, corn & milo mazes, petting zoo, and playground stuff) unless you wanted to go shoot giant pumpkin guns, and then that cost a little extra.  We are not the "shooting" type of family, so $6 it was.  The kids had a blast!  In the end, we rode out to the pumpkin patch and each kid picked their own pumpkin.  Of course, most of them couldn't hold them!  But they tried. 

And 419 pictures later.....here are a few of the highlights.
Crawling through the tires was a lot of fun!

The zip line was great. 
Isabella needed help, but her legs were moving like she was running on air.

The fun jumping pillow.

I think Chris had as much fun as the kids.

A VERY big slide.
