Joan’s Pumpkin Patch

IMG_6608Micah didn’t have school last Friday because of Parent/Teacher conferences.  So before Jason left for his men’s retreat that weekend, we all headed over to Joan’s Farm & Pumpkin Patch in Livermore for some quality family time.  I like visiting pumpkin patches on a weekday to avoid the crowds.  They have more activities on the weekends, like gem panning and hay rides, but there’s still plenty of things to do for the kids during the regular week.

We packed a lunch and found a shady spot to eat at one of their picnic tables.  After lunch, the kids climbed and played around the straw bales.IMG_6573IMG_6569IMG_6574

We fed the goats, sheep and chickens. Food for the animals is 25 cents/cup.IMG_6599IMG_6600IMG_6601IMG_6605

Which came first?  The chicken or the egg?IMG_6606

Lots of other fun things to do…IMG_6617IMG_6620IMG_6614

Micah loves corn on the cob!IMG_6623

So many pumpkins!IMG_6613IMG_6626

There’s also a maze that the kids ran around in, but I didn’t take any pictures.  They had a great time getting “lost” and trying to find each other.

Time to go home!IMG_6629

We didn’t buy any pumpkins at the farm, but we have a few at home that we got from family and Trader Joe’s.  =)

Which pumpkin patch(es) does your family like to visit?

One thought on “Joan’s Pumpkin Patch

  1. Fun day! We never buy pumpkins at the farm either. They’re usually from Lucky. :p Although, we did get the ones from Joan’s because it comes with the whole package. We are trying out Dell’Osso this week. It is farther away, but looks super fun.
