Saturday morning we decided last minute to head to pick some pumpkins, you know, boost our spirits and such. Without doing much research, I picked one from a quick google search and we were off.
Should have turned around right away when we saw the creepy structures, but we didn't. In fact we paid $5 PER PERSON to walk around a ghost town of strange story book recreations... THEN we paid $2.75 for an itty bitty pumpkin dumped in a field they called a "pumpkin patch". A little piece of me died.....
I don't mean to hate so much, I'm sure they're struggling to get by, but honestly these places are trying too hard! Give me a field of plump pumpkins, some fresh donuts and cider and a beautiful, natural fall world to escape to. None of the extra stuff.....
We made the most of it, I guess. Hopefully this coming Saturday we'll find something better. The NorthWesterner in Jeremy and I can't let fall go without a good fall experience for everyone :)
Oh and Madeline was so upset on the dinosaur because they stamp a horse on your hand to prove you'd paid for admission... And she "didn't want a horse on her hand..."
