Fall is here and it is time to pick out some pumpkins, go on hay barrel rides, get lost in corn mazes and enjoy the cooler nicer weather!

We went to Barton Hill Farms on their opening weekend and had a blast. It was a warm day but we still enjoyed the train rides, giant jumping pillow, consessions and pumpkins.
