It’s that time of year and Abby was more than ready to go to the pumpkin patch. It’s not hard to be a hero with a 2-and-a-half-year-old. You mention pumpkin patch on Saturday night and she’s happy all the way through Sunday afternoon.
When my husband was little, his family went every year to Rombach’s pumpkin farm in Chesterfield. When I say every year, I mean every year. I know this because I’ve heard his mom tell the story (how cold it was the year his younger brother was born October 4 but they had to take Brian so she stayed in the car with the baby) about 20 times.
So the tradition continued, even before our Abby was born.
Rombach’s has everything you could want in a pumpkin patch – pumpkins of all sizes, pony rides, every farm animal they could bring in, face painting, a “haunted house” and about 3 playgrounds.
This year, they added hay rides for the first time. We enjoyed the ride around the farm, but I think Abby would have just as well ridden the pony one more time.
Abby’s picks: face painting for $3, watching bunnies & the $1 mini pumpkins.
