of course i made dax pose for about a billion photos, but he obliged pretty well knowing that some amazing fun was on the horizon. sweet dax didn't disappoint in showing his personality in these pictures. love him.
|this. is. dax.|
when the sun started setting i told dax he better go check out everything else they had to offer and we headed towards the giant bouncy pillow. dax saw the giant pillow and immediately began stripping out of his shoes and socks, leaving a trail behind him as he made his way up the pillow. i think he could have jumped on this thing for a straight day if we'd let him. we allowed him about an hour of jumping and only made him move on so he could see everything else there was to see before we needed to head back home. this, however - was his favorite thing at the pumpkin patch!
after the bouncy pillow we took a quick trip through the corn maze. dax was pretty bored by this and quickly wanted to move on. next we headed to the pumpkin launch. it was like a giant catapult king, which is one of his favorite games on the ipad. all three of us lined up to see who could hit the pumpkins with the baseball sling shots. daddy definitely had better skills than dax and i had at this game! after quite a few rounds we let dax have some fun in the corn bin. he loved laying in the corn, rolling in the corn, putting the corn all over himself, and managed to get corn in his socks, pockets, and underpants! corn for everyone! last but not least, we took a hayride back to the pumpkin patch, picked out a pumpkin, and loaded up in the car. it was an awesome afternoon, and we were all tired (from trimming bushes earlier in the day and this in the afternoon, which in hindsight was just too much for one day - but we were short on october weekends!) and ready for bed!
all in all, we loved vollmer farms so much more than hillridge. it was not crowded or over stimulating. dax had an amazing time and we cannot wait to go back next fall!
