Pumpkin farm

The family went to the farm a week or so ago to get some pumpkins so we can carve in time for Halloween.

We visited Whittamore’s farm. It was a Sunday so there were lots of people. There were thousands of pumpkins to choose from…..
There were super corn, straw and kiddie corn mazes, a barn yard, a little tire playground, a treehouse, a tractor drawn wagon ride through the haunted forest and a pumpkin cannon fire event wherein we got to count down 5,4,3,2,1, FIRE!!! or when Farmer Frank was aiming for the bus, we all chanted “Hit that Bus!!!”. It surely was fun.


Lots and lots of pumpkins


Here’s the treehouse
