The past 2 years we've gone to Goebbert's Farm and thought it'd be fun to try something new (I've been to Sonny Acres before, but it was a million years ago in high school). I don't know which farm I like better. Goebbert's is prettier and bigger, but there's something about Sonny Acres that's quite charming. And there was the sweetest smell in the air- I'm guessing it was just the pumpkins, but it was fabulous!
If you're local, every Wednesday in October is "Wristband Wednesday." You get unlimited access to the carnival for $10. After checking everything out we got Harry a wristband and he was more than excited to try out the different rides.
We did the cars and train first, both old favorites. Then Harry got crazy and asked to go on both the flying elephants and dragon roller coaster.
Let's see that one close up.
Awwwwww... He definitely was unsure the first few laps but was smiling by the end of the ride. He said he had fun!
There's a ton to do at Sonny Acres, but a lot of it is geared towards older kids. So after we were done with the carnival we picked out our pumpkins. 3 little gourds, 2 small pumpkins and one big one. I think we're actually going to carve one this year.
I love that he'll happily pose for pictures now (knock on wood)! He has such a cute little smile. Even if he does look the wrong way most of the time ;)
And just for fun, here's a comparison of Harry's past pumpkin patch excursions.
