Hill Ridge Farms

Three years in a row now we have visited Hill Ridge Farms. I am sure we will go back next year.

The sky was a bit cloudy, so we decided to get the main things out of the way first. So we started with the train ride.

Notice how far back Jess was sitting from us. I guess that is what happens when you become a teenager. You are too cool to sit with the family!

Looking back at the farm from the train ride.

Delaney wanted to take a quick run through the tunnel

So Jess took a quick nap!

Jess and Delaney playing in the hay pile.

Then a quick hay ride to the pumpkin patch...

...and Daddy steals a kiss

Jess finds her pumpkin

Delaney has hers

...and Sean

...then Owen.

PopPop does his special tricks (the man behind him thought this was the funniest thing ever!)

Daddy is all loaded up!

..and back on the hayride for a trip back to the farm to play some more.

I must admit, this is the ONLY reason we brought the stroller.

Jess down the slide

Delaney down the slide with Sean and Poppy waiting (Sean would not go down)

Where are Daddy and Owen?

WOOHOO!! They made it!!

Only her face was left!

Delaney's turn!

another maze!

... rock mining....

You can go here to see pictures from the past two years.

It was a great day and even more fun than the pictures reflect. It was amazing that the weather co operated and the sun came back out to play!
I can't wait to see all those pumpkins carved up to reveal those similing faces!!

Thanks for the sharing the day with us

Love Poppy

That place looks so fun. I have never seen a corn pit. Too cool! I can bet Yaya would never want to leave it.

I would love to do something like this, but alas, nothing like that around here.
