On Saturday, we went to Feura Bush to pick pumpkins at Stanton's Feura Farm - a pumpkin patch of the hay-ride, corn-maze, cider and donuts (and a field of pumpkin) school of pick-your-own. We had a blast!
We enjoyed the straw maze - a small but excellent maze with lots of blind corners and dead-ends, the kids area where Exile #4 and E5N1 raced tricycles and played in a corn box (that's not sand that his sister is burying E5N1 in below!).
The cider donuts were rather excellent. I'm not sure if they are made on premises or with their own apples which are also available for pick your own right now only a few years after the orchard was established (sadly we ran out of time to do that - much to Exile #4's disappointment.)
The star of the show was undoubtedly the straw slide - the kids went down, climbed back up, went down again for quite some time - even too-cool-for-kids'-stuff Exile #3 was well and truly won over.
It calls for a moving picture I think:
Oh yes, there were also pumpkins to pick. Lots of them. And views.
And next to the pumpkin field, a corn maze - large, fun but intricate rather than fiendish (this one should move too):
And after we returned on the hayride with our pumpkins...more sliding! (and this one)
Now we just need to find time to go back for some of those apples...
