No, I don't mean Halloween. It's time to immerse ourselves in orange globes on the vine, candy apples, hay bales, steaming cups of liquid caffeine, kids on sugar highs and everything pumpkin patch!!
This place is more than just a pumpkin farm. It's like the Fall-themed amusement park of Omaha.
Think I'm kidding? There are freaking singing ears of corn! I think Nebraskans are stereotyping themselves a bit here. Oh, but there's a singing bunny too.
My husband and I had never ventured to this place before now. In past years, we opted for the quieter, possibly mundane, pumpkin patches that had... well, pumpkins.
Here, Georgia could be a princess.
And every day her daddy's princess...
We fed donkeys and camels. Yes, camels. I know, nothing to do with Fall and pumpkins, but it was cool!
We danced inside straw tepees.
And Georgia had her very first PONY RIDE!!! She loved it. If you do not know me, then you might not realize why this is a big deal. Horses have been a big part of my life, and like every good horse mom, I have visions of my daughter on horseback. Today, a pony was close enough!
And yes, amidst all the chaos and the amusements and the distractions and the food, we did find some pumpkins.
We're taking this one home to carve up.
