Pumpkins & Corn Mazes

I can't tell you how happy we are that summer is finally giving way to fall.  Not that we don't love summer after a long winter, but now we're ready for the super hot days {and nights} to be over...Okay, we've been ready for a while.

Okay, so I admit I didn't bust out the fall decor {I don't have any and don't have the time to decorate anyway}, but we kicked off the harvest season with a trip to Swank Farms, in Hollister, CA for some corn maze fun with a few friends. 

The farm itself is free to visit.  Then you buy tickets for each of the activities. They've got some farm animals that you can feed, a little tractor ride with cow cabs for the kiddos, pumpkin launching, a corn cabin, go karts, a pumpkin patch, the corn maze, the Haunted Conover Mystery Ranch, food, and a little shop. They've also got a nice picnic area.

 This time, we stuck to the corn maze {$10 pp}.  It was a lot of fun, with a little word game to play along the way, and about the right size. Not big enough to get truly lost in!

The Haunted Conover Mystery Ranch looked super creepy, even in the daytime!  YIKES!  You won't catch me visiting at night cuz I'm a scaredy cat! I bet Rogér would love it though!

I wanted soooo bad to get some pumpkins, but it was too early still. I figured they'd rot in the 90 Degree weather we were having in San Jose....bleh.

Oh well.  Even sans pumpkins, we had a good time :)
