Man, those are some angry birds.
We raced these ducks twice. I kicked the boys' butts the first time, so I decided not to race the second time. I didn't want to beat them twice. It's a mom thing, I guess.
This is a very simple game. There's a hook on the post, and a ring on the wire. You swing the ring on the end of the wire, and try to catch it on the hook. Simple, right? Not so much, it turns out. Connor and Lex played with these all over the farm all day long, and they must have swung that ring 100 times each, and Connor only hooked it one time. It's simple, yet hard. And they loved it. They want to construct one at home.
It's the Barnyard 500 Race!
Riding the Cattle Train
They loved this roller thing. They ran it all over the tracks, and they liked it so much that it was the one thing that they wanted to do one more time before we left, nevermind that the pumpkin farm was already closed. We were some of the last ones to leave that afternoon.
Another one of their favorite things to do at Maxwell's Pumpkin Farm is the corn maze with the obstacle course inside it. They had very fond memories of this from the last time.
We also fired the apple cannon a few times. One of Connor's apples knocked a hole in that fake barn.
Oh, just a giant cow chair and a big metal chicken. You know, farm stuff.
We also completed the giant corn maze, and the bingo puzzle inside it. Each of us finished it, so we entered the drawing for $1,000 three separate times. The kids are absolutely certain that we are going to win, and they are planning to spend the $1,000 on video games. Because of course they are.
They each got to pick their own pumpkins from the pumpkin patch. We brought them home and now they are decorating our front porch.
We also went for a very lovely hay ride around the farm.
Kings of the Pumpkin Farm!
