Jacquemin Farms with the Larsons

Lucas, Eliana, Matthew, Noah, & Natalie
It was a super beautiful, sunny fall day, so the kids and  I decided to go to Jacquemin Farms to meet up with some friends.  Brian and Sarah Larson are Natalie's god parents, but all of our kids get along so great together.  They have a first grader and a third grader, and they all play so nicely together.  Jacquemin Farms is a small pumpkin farm, about 15 minutes from our house.  They have a small straw maze, a corn box {in lieu of a sandbox}, some bouncy play things, and of course pumpkins.  

But, our kids don't go there for the pumpkins.....we go for the pumpkin donuts.  We came home with two dozen of the BEST homemade pumpkin donuts ever.  We only got one dozen last year, so this year we for sure needed more.

We went on the straw ride out to the pumpkin patch, just for the experience.  We didn't need to pick pumpkins because my parents had grown some in their garden this year and we were well stocked.  So Sarah and I chatted for a LONG time while Natalie was playing in the corn.  She was happy while Noah, Eliana, Matthew, and Lucas scrambled around the bouncy things, the straw maze, and begging for drinks and snacks.  It was a good time.  It ended up being an extremely warm and nice day, and we had a ton of fun!
