Berry Acres Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze

For the past few years I have always been so envious of all the pumpkin patch photos that everyone posts on Facebook of their kids. This was mine last year.

Fred Meyer's produce section

This year we are out of Alaska, and in the awesome farming country of North Dakota! We went to a fun little pumpkin patch and corn maze at a farm called Berry Acres today.

We paid a small fee to get in and then were able to play for the day (or a few hours, like we did).

Our first stop were the hay bale slides. The slides were made of plastic culverts that had been cut in half and then were placed on stacked bales of hay. Tanner had a blast. Dillan was small and got tossed around a bit on the way down, but had fun none the less.

The nest stop were the pedal cars. Tanner couldn't quite reach the pedals so Brandon had to push the boys around and around and around the track. There were a few fits when the boys had to get off the cars and move on to the next activity. It was Tanner's favorite.

Next up was the corn maze. It was a lot of fun. We let Tanner tell us where to go for about 20minutes. We went left, left, left into a never ending circle. Brandon finally got us out of there after we'd been in for a total of 30 minutes or so.

Following our navigator, Tanner.

My favorite thing to watch the kids do was play in the corn kernel pit. They had so much fun shoveling the kernels into buckets, making angels in it, and making friends. I also got a kick out of listening to all the parents yell at their kids to spit them out or stop throwing.

Tanner took a small ride in a car pulled behind a tractor. He had a blast.

He's in the black one, hiding.

I, of course, tried to get lots of pictures posing the kids with pumpkins. My boys, who hate to be posed and photographed, were less than cooperative, but I'll take what I can get.

I like Tanner's smile in this one.
Brandon likes this one. He says they have the same facial expressions.

Our first experience to a pumpkin patch and corn maze, as a family, was so much fun. There are a few other big ones in the state that I can't wait to explore over the next few years.
