Where the Deer and the Pumpkin Eating Dinosaurs Play

Sunday, October 31st, 2010 by by
Somehow we managed to cram in our annual trip to the local pumpkin mega-center farm before October came to an end.   Weekend schedules and mercurial weather had been collaborating to waylay our journey, but last Sunday we had a fortuitously activity – a free day when the rain held off just long enough for us to enjoy a few hours of Fall fun.

We’ve been frequenting the same family empire farm since Hayden was a baby, and the only thing that’s changed are the prices (higher!) and the range of activities (dozens more!).  Our area is rife with similar attractions, but this place has become our tradition.  Even though we get fleeced every year, the folks that run the farm are super friendly, and everything there is top-notch.  I like to be treated well when I’m getting robbed, you know.  Seriously – Goebbert’s Family Farm always guarantees a wholesome day of family fun with just the right seasonal overtones. Plus, where else can you go to find Fallow Deer, Giraffes, Capuchin Monkeys, and a pumpkin eating dinosaur frolicking in the same place??  Top that!

My mom and dad, or “Ama” and “Papa” as the kids call them, came over to join us which was a bonus.  Kellan particularly adores both of his grandpas, and both of them are good sports with all the kids.  Patience of saints, I tell you…

Down vest? Check.  Baseball cap?  Check.  Sunglasses?  Check.  Okay, we’re ready!
