In front of the bakery (which had the best cinnamon rolls and cookies) were three of these huge pumpkins.
Not the best picture, but this shows the main entrance where there are several cute old outbuildings. There were many schoolkids here this day, it's a very popular place for field trips.
There are quite a few animals in pens to see and also an area with animals that can be pet. These pigs were pretty entertaining. There was one that seemed to be trying to find his way out.
This area was planted very nicely with lots of sun loving flowers. Just to the left was a gift shop that had a mix of new and antique items for sale. There is a large covered area next to the gift shop that looked like a place that could be rented for weddings.
Sweet Pea was wandering around here. Just behind her is part of the 12 acre Washington State corn maze. There are many small scale Washigton landmarks throughout it. The paths through the maze represent different highways, and as you go through there are Washington history questions that test your knowledge. Knowing the correct answer puts you on the right track to the next stop, incorrect answers may lead you to a dead end.
Just part of the view of the pumpkin patch with cornfields beyond. They had wheelbarrows to use to load big pumpkins in. I used ours to give the Littlest Gardener a ride in.
Sweet Pea and the Littlest Gardener spent a long time trying to find the right pumpkins. They had quite a few requirements the pumpkins had to meet. Sweet Pea showed me the pumpkin seeds she found and wants to try planting next year.
These are the pumpkins the girls chose. We'll be going back later this week with the Littlest Gardener's preschool to choose another one or two.
And this is what I can home with. I found this at the gift shop. I have no idea if it's an antique or not, but it was a great price compared to what I've seen these old ones being sold for in other places.
This is the front porch so far. There's definitely more to do, but it's off to a good start I think.
Visiting the pumpkin farm and enjoying the scenery along the way definitely put me in the mood for fall.
