Pumpkin Patch

Sunday, October 27, 2013

Last Sunday, my sorority went on a sisterhood to Anderson Farms in Erie, Colorado. Anderson Farms is a huge pumpkin patch with two corn mazes, animals, games, and of course, a pumpkin patch. We went in the morning with every member of my sorority. It almost felt like a field trip with all of my best friends. We got there and met up in a big group as our president handed out tickets. We all ran into the pumpkin patch like little kids, getting so excited about everything that we saw. We immediately went towards the animals and got to pet a baby goat. After that, we wanted to do the corn maze. Being in a corn maze is a little bit unsettling. We walked in a saw five different paths we could take. I have never felt claustophobic before, but I guess there's a first time for everything. We walked in the corn maze for about 5 minutes and then decided to just walk the same way we walked in and exit towards the entrance. Obviously, we didn't last very long. 

After the attempt of a corn maze, we wanted to go pick out some pumpkins. I'm not kidding when I say that this pumpkin patch was huge. We had to wait in line to take a tracter ride to the actual pumpkin patch. Everybody was squeezed together on this tractor ride and when we reached some bumbs in the road, everybody was laughing and trying not to fall out of their chair. When we got there, there were pumpkins everywhere. They were big, small, rotten, and perfect, anything you could have ever wanted. We walked around for a while looking for the perfect pumpkin before piling back into the tracter and going back to the main area. Half of my friends brought a pumpkin home and the whole way home we could hear them rolling around in the trunk. After a quick stop at the face painting stand, we decided that it was time to go home. It officially feels like fall now that our pumpkins are picked and carved.
