Along with County Line Orchard, another fun fall tradition for my family is going to Bengtson’s Pumpkin Farm. We L-O-V-E love Bengtson’s! It’s not your ordinary pumpkin farm… it’s full of fun activities and adorable scenery along with sound effects that adults and kids alike can enjoy! Here a few of the things you will see at Bengtson’s…
An old smoking pick up truck going clunkity clunk (well, that’s not the exact sound, but you get the point. :P). We stopped to help the boney driver, but he sent us on our way as he was already being taken care of by a mechanic that was all bones too! Bare bones seemed to be a trend in this part of town! ;)
So on our way we went to enjoy more scenery and have some fun on our pumpkin picking adventure! Along the way, we ran into quite a few of those boney folk along with some pumpkin folk chilling on benches here and there. Now these folk are so kind that they are more than happy to take some pictures with you… just plop right next to them and they won’t say a word! On the other hand, there is one flying witch that may not be so happy and she may just laugh at you if you tried…hehe!
When on our adventure, we always start off with the kiddy rides where everyone can enjoy unlimited rides. My fave is the train, but the little ones couldn’t get enough of the spinning honey pots.
While it was fun and games for some, others decided to help milk the cows. Farmer Gabriel took the lead, but soon after some of the others followed along.
From there, we decided to take a stroll to check out some of the live entertainment…
The See Through Band is a must see… and how sweet is that couple dancing as the band played. Really, the band was singing and playing… and that couple twirling away! We thought of joining the couple, but we didn’t want miss out on the singing chickens performance as they sang Take Me Out to the Barnyard!
Afterwards, we decided to rest and enjoy some hot dogs, nachos, and hot caramel apple treats. The hot caramel apple treat… that’s some good stuff! It’s sliced apples, drizzled with hot caramel, nuts, whipped cream, and with a cherry on top….mmm!
Next up, pony rides and petting zoo…
There’s so much to enjoy at the farm… hayrides, punkin chucker, corn maze, Jimmy Crack Corn Bin, big fun slide, Kids Village, haunted barn, fun barn, pig races, and of course pumpkin picking!
We didn’t get to check out the pig races this year, but one year Suraya’s pig won! Ha!
We didn’t want to go home, but had to call it a day.. so we finished off our day with picking out pumpkins to take home with us.
Once our pumpkins were loaded into our wheelbarrow, we were ready to roll. ;)
Suraya and I grabbed some gourds with us too… she found a gourd that looked like a snake’s head (and that stem looked like the tongue!) but I decided to leave that snake head gourd behind.. it kinda creeped me out..ha!
Oh.. and of course we couldn’t leave without buying a bag of kettle corn which we couldn’t stop eating the whole car ride home!
As soon as we got home, the gourds went straight into my favorite wooden bowl.
I did decorate one of the pumpkins we brought home, but you’ll just have to wait for the next post to see how…. and Suraya has a plan for her’s too which she thought of all on her own! I’ll be sure to share once it’s complete. :D
I hope you enjoyed our pumpkin picking adventure! Did you go pumpkin picking yet?
