On a recent weekend, we decided to visit a new (to us) pumpkin patch in Frederick, MD. We’ve been going to our same local pumpkin patch since the twins were born, and decided this year to try a different place to see if there would be less crowds. We were definitely not disappointed. Summers Farm was much bigger and better organized so we rarely waiting in lines or had to deal with overcrowding, despite the fact that there were hundreds of people there. All the usual staples of a pumpkin patch could be found at Summers like the hayride to the actual patch, corn maze and slides. They also had these huge jumping pillows, farm animals to feed and live music. Our family had an absolute blast, even though we were exhausted by the time we were ready to leave. Taking three little kids to an event like this is definitely hard work, but it’s become an autumn tradition in our house and the kids talk about it for days. I’m just glad that we’re able to give our kids these experiences that they can look back upon when they’re older.
