Dream Field Farms :: Sprague Adventures


While last month we went to the Aquarium, this month we wanted to do a trip a bit closer to home, so we decided on a pumpkin patch just 30 minutes away. We were planning on going on an official homeschool day the farm had planned, but with the impending hurricane/tropical storm, we decided to visit the Saturday prior.

It did not dissapoint. I had read they had some fun kids games set up, but they had a fantastic set up. Bouncy houses, corn pits, hayrides, cornmazes, animals to look at, and lastly getting to pick out the pumpkins. You better believe Eowyn found the BIGGEST pumpkin she could find. We told her if she could roll it, she could get it. Perhaps we underestimated her strength because it resulted in us having the biggest pumpkin we've ever had. She's quite proud, as you can imagine.

We spent about two hours there, and still hadn't done all the activities, but our little kids can only handle so much. So we went on our way to go home. The location as free parking and is stroller friendly. They also have restrooms on site. They had a lot of delicious food offerings as well, but we didn't eat any (a lot of it is state fair-esque food, and our european guts have yet to acclimate...) but I imagine its quite delicious.

The price for us to go was around thirty five. While kids two and under get in free, it is a worthwhile expense for the amount of fun activites they had. It really was a wonderful time!

And as a bonus, I ran into a fellow nicu mom who delivered the same week I did! How fun is that? We got a picture with our babies and it was so fun to see how well her little man was doing (both of us had our boys at 35 weeks.)

Eowyn's highlight was definitely getting to hold the duckling. She absolutely loved it. Our favorite bit was watching Elias go down the bouncy slide-first terrified, then bold. We laughed solid belly laughs at his faces as he went down. Goodness, that kid is a risk taker. He's keeping us laughing and on our toes.

What a wonderful place. We'll definitely head back next year.
