Fall has officially hit north Texas and the family and I couldn’t be happier. It’s like a non spoken rule, that when October comes into play, pumpkin farms and pumpkin patches are the thing you do to celebrate the incoming weather and celebrations.
As a family, we have visited quite a few pumpkin patches, but last year was our first time visiting Hall’s Pumpkin Farm & Corn Maze in Grapevine, TX. We fell in love and swore we would be back the next year. Well, 2016 is here and we were happy to oblige to our new family tradition.
The family and I decided to visit Hall’s Pumpkin Farm during their opening weekend. Which also happened to be the opening weekend for the Texas State Fair. It ended up working out in our favor, because when we got there we basically had the whole pumpkin farm to ourselves. Last year, we visited towards the end of the month and it was busy but still so much fun. This time, we were able to partake in all the wonderful activities. Our mini me even got to pose a few times in their awesome pumpkin set ups!
Our little mini me got to run around with her daddy and pick out some awesome pumpkins to take home. Watching the two of them run around and goof off ended up being the highlight of my night. Even I got to sneak in a picture with my mini me!
I paid $5 dollars for each of us to go into their famous maze. We ended up getting LOST, LOST. We failed miserably and the entrance ended up being both our in and out of the maze. We never made it to the end. Their maze is one of the most epic, EVER.
After our maze defeat we hit up the food stands and you guys, you know I LOVE FOOD, right?! Ok… so I have a confession. I have never been a fan of kettle corn because most of the times that I have tried it, it has always been a little TOO sweet, if that’s even a thing. (gasp! I know)
Well, here at Hall’s Pumpkin Farm, they obviously make their own kettle corn and it was the best thing I’ve ever tasted in my life. I didn’t try kettle corn last year, and honestly I don’t know why. This year my little one convinced me to try it out after we bought her, her own bag, and I’m so glad she did. It’s the perfect combo of sweet and salty. (It was SO good that one of my bestie’s hit up Halls Farm during the week after I bragged about it, just to snatch a bag of their Kettle Corn!) Obviously, we also had to try their street tacos, roasted corn and a caramel apple because YUM.
I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect setting or weather that evening. Dinner under the stars, surrounded by beautiful pumpkins will definitely be a night to remember. We explored the rest of the farm and Ella got to make some friends as we visited the farm animals and rode on the hay ride.
Honestly, it was such a perfect family date night. It’s a beautiful pumpkin farm with so many things to see and do. It’s free to get in. You can visit just to walk around and take some fun, candid photographs; or just hang out and take in the ambience.
You guys should absolutely check them out! I think they’re the best. I really do. What other fall activities besides pumpkin farm and pumpkin patches do you partake in? Let me know. Until the next adventure…
