Fun With 1/2 the Family

Last Saturday was a fun fall day with three of my immediate family members. It began with the middle son bowling in a tournament out-of-town. He did good. It was fun. He said he enjoyed it. We hadย not participated in a tournament other than school team in a few years so it was nice to be at one again.ย He did bowl one game of 236! ๐Ÿ™‚

My hubby and daughter joined us at the tournament which was great. The youngest son stayed home, he didn’t want no boring bowling tournament. lol

After the tournament we headed to a pumpkin patch that we had been to when the boys were in grade school. The daughter wanted to go and she didn’t have to twist our arm too hard to go there. It was fun and a perfect cool night.

Hubby and I figuring out how to climb up there. It was a bit comical, but we made it! ๐Ÿ™‚

The daughter, hubby, and the middle son. As always hubby and son messing around and made the photo blurry. oops. ย ๐Ÿ™‚ย  The daughter and son. ย ๐Ÿ™‚

The daughter and I had fun with the kiddy stuff. We were wondering why they put the board in the middle of the opening of the scarecrow? Perhaps it had fallen down? So, we stood by it instead of poking our faces through the hat area.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

The corn maze was a blast!

The kids ended up going their own way. They said they made it out once before we found them, but they got lost trying to find us….so….are they really telling the truth? LOL

I have only been toย two different mazes but this one is so far the best andย challenging. ย ๐Ÿ™‚

We also rode on theย hayrackย ride around the area and ate some goodies. There is a ton of stuff to do and theyย keep adding more and more. One area had all kinds of outdoor games like corn hole, tic tac toe, and giant legos!

We will definitely be going back. Oh, and they had a band playing and lots of areas for making your own fire pits for cooking.

It is a neat pumpkin patch!
