Fall Fun 2017: Pumpkin Patches and Corn Mazes

Wow I really treasure the memories of taking our kids out to these things when they were little!  Seems like we gravitated to Cox Farms most years.  They had a really wacky hay ride with cut-out figures that caused a little head-scratching for the adults (Martians?), but the kids loved it.  One of my favorite years was with my friend Fllory and her boys.  We listened to Mika full blast in the minivan on the way there, and then spent hours going down the slides into giant piles of filthy chunks of upholstery foam.  Man, I miss those days!
