It'll be time to visit the pumpkin patch again soon...can't wait!!

Here's a layout from our pumpkin patch adventure last year...

A couple years ago, I had heard about Poppy’s Pumpkin Patch outside Norfolk, NE from a friend of mine who had taken her children there and said it was great fun. So, I thought we’d give it a go this year and even got Justin to come along.

One of the things that Kaitlin was really excited about was the zip line. She couldn’t wait to ride it!

However, we arrived to find out that you had to be 50” to go on it and by their measurement, she came up about a 1/2 inch short. She was quite disappointed.

Unfortunately, that kind of set the tone for the rest of the day, but we tried our best to have fun.

There were some play areas such as a large plastic slide, a tricycle race track and more, but to be honest, most of them were kind of a disappointment. Out of five or six tricycles, only one actually worked! Also, there was a mini-version of the zip line for the kids, but it was just a bit too ‘mini’ for Kaitlin’s taste.

Of course, Kaitlin loved checking out the animals...except for when a goat butted its horn into her arm. They had llamas, horses, pigs, geese, goats and bunnies as well and Kaitlin always has a soft spot for animals.
Just the same, next year I think we’ll stick with picking our pumpkins at Garrity’s. Sometimes local is best.
