Pumpkin Patch

I kept seeing all these really cute pictures of kiddos at pumpkin patches... and I got jealous. :) I wanted those experiences for my baby, too! So, I researched it and decided on one of the patches in Flower Mound. There are two right next to each other. Apparently one is the "original" and the other is the "copycat competition". We went to the copycat. It had a pony ride. So, it won.

First off, we need a wagon to get around in.


Then, we should probably visit the "petting zoo". (Not the best, but they delivered, I suppose.)

*not pictured: pot bellied pig, goat.

Next, I think we'll get in line for the hayride!

He kept pointing out the "horsey"s in the pasture.

Speaking of horseys, next up: Pony Ride! Cohen has never been near horses, much less ridden one. So this was fun first for him. He was incredibly sweet to the pony, kept bending down and petting the mane. :)

After tearing him away from the ponies (he cried...) we stumbled upon the hay maze! He was scared at first (understandable) but then went in with gusto!

He found a little hole leading out, and tried to escape! :)

Yuck.. don't like the colors here, but here he is coming out of the maze!

Pause for pictures with Mommy and Daddy on a wagon!

Then, Coco spotted this! Choo choo!! He just had to ride. He loved it! Mama was a nervous wreck as it went out of my sight for a minute, but then when I saw him rounding the corner, he was ecstatic!

Silly boy!

Nice photo op at an antique tractor. He looked adorable. This kid loves him some tractors!

Before we picked out our pumpkin and came home, Cohen climbed a hay pile with Daddy. He was on top of the world! I think he's just perfect!

So, that was our day at the Pumpkin Patch! Can't wait to do it again next year! 

My little review of the patch?

Name: Pumpkin Village Pumpkin Patch
Address: 4908 Cross Timbers, Flower Mound, TX 75028
Admission: Free
Parking: $5 (gotta keep it open somehow, right?)
Cost of Activities? Hayride-free, hay maze-free, petting zoo-free, hay pyramid-free, pony ride-$3 (tickets), choo choo barrel train-$3 (tickets), and free photo opportunities. Other activities we didn't do: bounce houses-free, mini Ferris wheel-$3, swing-$3, punkin chunkin-$2 per shot.
Food: Hamburgers, hot dogs, nachos, water, soda-$2-$3.
Pumpkins: $1-$20. Careful, we clearly picked out a $15 pumpkin and they tried to charge us $20 for it. After pointing out that it matched their $15 model exactly, they lowered the price. 

So, the petting zoo was lacking a bit.. expected a few more animals. The ponies were great. The kids get a nice 4 or 5 minute ride. They only had 3 ponies going though, so it took a while to get through the lines. We only bought a soda and a hot dog at the end because we had a couple coupons leftover. We enjoyed the hayride and I know Cohen loved the barrel ride. All of the workers were pretty nice, except the lady selling the pumpkins. She was on her cell phone during the entire transaction, didn't answer questions and again, tried to up charge us. 

Overall? We'd go back. We may possibly try the other one, right next to it next year. But if not, this one was fun. And inexpensive. Fun day.

  1. How Wonderful! I was sad last year when I didn't take Eli to the pumpkin patch so we HAD to go this year as well. Cohen looks so cute doing all of the 'big boy' things. Our pumpkin patch was much different than y'all's. We paid $6 a person but it included everything except the food to feed the animals in the petting zoo ($1 a cup). (It even included the pumpkin) Yours had much more to offer though. We had: a class to learn about the pumpkins, hayride, maze, tricycle track, hay stack with slides, petting zoo, and of course, the pumpkin patch. Happy Fall!
