This morning Jaye and I went to the Big Orange Pumpkin Farm in Richardson. Yes, there is an entire farm smack dab in the middle of Richardson! You don’t even have to drive an hour out of the city to find pumpkin and farm fun. I was super excited to discover this place.
Jaye was super excited, too. Mostly about the goats. She LOVED them. She giggled and laughed and stuffed her little fingers in their mouths feeding them oats. She never wanted to stop feeding them. And I never wanted to stop watching her (and taking pictures of her. Seriously, I have so many pictures of Jaye feeding goats).
Okay, just one more. I promise.
We also sat on pumpkins and took pictures. Jaye tried to carry the littler pumpkins around, but they were kind of heavy for her. She thought they were all balls to throw or roll.
We went with Jaye’s Grammy, her cousins Benjamin and Lyla, and her Aunt Rachel and Uncle Grant. The older kids also had a blast. They loved running around in the maze. And in the pumpkins.
There was a hayride pulled by a tractor. Jaye watched the tractor and seemed pretty nonplussed. There was also a little farm museum, but we skipped it with the toddlers. There was a nice picnic area if you wanted to bring a lunch.
Admission was $6 for anyone over 2 years old. It includes a small pumpkin, the hayride, and even a cup of feed for the goats. I definitely recommend the Big Orange Pumpkin Farm at the Owens Spring Creek Farm. It’s close to the city, but has all the pumpkin fun you could want!
Okay, so I snuck one more Jaye and the goats picture in. But seriously, how could I resist?
