Fun at the Farm

This weekend we made a trip to Eckert's Millstadt Farm. It is a local orchard and we have made visits to the farms a part of our family traditions several times throughout the year. In the spring, there is a massive Easter egg hunt and breakfast with the bunny. In the early fall, there is apple picking. In December, there are story times, cut your own tree and pictures with Santa.

Since the kids are a little bit older, we decided to try the haunted hayride this year in addition to our pumpkin picking. The kids had a blast! We had not been to this particular farm for this event so we did not know what to expect. Much to our surprise, they had a ton of things for us to do and we ended up spending four hours there.

They had pony and camel rides. We opted for the camel because it we had never been on a camel before.

There was a petting zoo...

Lots of things to climb and play on...

One of the features that I had not been aware of in the past, were the bonfire sites available to rent out for the night. I cannot wait until next year, so that we can get a group of friends together to roast hot dogs and make s'mores.

At the end of the night, we rode a haunted hayride and then picked up some pumpkins. Yesterday, we were able to carve our masterpieces.

The final product...
