Now, you can pick pumpkins out at a local grocery store, big-box store, or nursery…or you can find a farm and pick them yourself. We opted for the self-picking method. And we’ll be doing this from now on.
We drove about 30 or 40 minutes south of Cleveland to a pumpkin farm somewhere between Lodi and Wooster. I say “somewhere between” because I was lost from the time we left the Lodi outlet mall vicinity until we got back there.
We played in a toddler-sized hay maze,
(Oh yea - that's my little guy in one bad ass skull and cross bones shirt. Don't mess with him ... he's one step from a harley and studded leather jacket (if mommy ever lets him stop wearing footie jammies))ran through a huge meadow maze, sat by a fire (where you could roast marshmallows or wieners), rode on a hay ride (a very very long and super fun hay ride) back to the pumpkin patch (Avery's first tractor ride...yup - starting this one early...yee haw Avery!)…and then picked some pumpkins.
