You Know It's Officially Fall When... spend the day at a pumpkin farm.  On Sunday afternoon, we happened to stumble upon an awesome pumpkin farm in Snohomish, called Craven Farm.

Here is a list of things to do at Craven Farm:

  • Pick pumpkins (duh)
  • Check out baby farm animals (I didn't get to do this because I was nursing Lance in the car, but Ryan and Nate checked them out and said it was pretty cool.
  • Make your way through the 15-acre corn-maze.
  • Pumpkin slinger
  • Weekday Storytime Tour
  • Tractor rides
  • Pumpkin head scenes (pretty funny)
  • Espresso bar
  • Make your own scarecrow
  • Browse the harvest market

There were over 20 acres of pumpkin fields.  The best part was that they had these adorable red wagons to pull through the fields.
These little pumpkins were my favorite.  So tiny.  We bought a few to put around our house.
In addition to the corn maze, tractor rides, and espresso bar, they also had adorable props set up that the kids could play on and parents could get pictures.  This is definitely my favorite picture of the day.

Isn't Nate getting so big?!  Every day he does something to make me realize that he is less of a baby and more of a little boy.
My favorite part of Craven Farm were the awesome fields of flowers.  Seriously, it was gorgeous.

I could have stayed there all day taking pictures.

If you are in the Seattle area and thinking about visiting a pumpkin farm, I highly recommend Craven Farms.  They really go out of their way to make it a memorable experience.
