We visited our favorite pumpkin patch/corn maze this weekend! (You might remember that we also visited this same place last year) It is in a quaint little town, and has plenty of pumpkins, hayrides, corn mazes, kettle corn, and barnyard animals you can imagine. Everything that makes October in Virginia lovely.
Grandma & Grandpa came along too, and Jackson had to teach grandpa how to milk a cow:
The highlight for Jackson was his prize pony ride. We have been working really hard on potty training this week, and I am so overjoyed to report that it appears to be working (many trips out of the house with no accidents!). I have found that bribery is my best tactic, and so I told him if he went potty (in a port-a-potty, no less!) then he could ride a pony. He did, so celebratory pony ride it was!!!
Grandma joined in on the pony-fun :)
He was also a fan of the slides:

Of course, we did the corn maze too:
I can’t believe how much he has grown in a year:

There was a tractor at the park yesterday. Can you guess what Jackson wanted to do the whole time ;)?
October in Virginia: Pumpkins & Corn Mazes
We took Jackson to a local corn maze/pumpkin extravaganza this morning. He was in heaven. When we walked in, the first thing we saw was Peyton! We were pretty excited about that.
There was also a giant pumpkin and a really fun tractor, identical to the one my sister and I used to climb all over as children:
My favorite part was the corn maze. We grabbed a pole with a yellow flag and let J lead the way:
J’s favorite part was definitely the animals:
In fact, he did his chicken wing move and screamed “bock bock bock bock!!!!” at the chickens:
Here are a few (hundred) more photos of our day:
