It was a crisp, sunny fall day today as my husband and I made our annual trek to Goebbert's Pumpkin Farm! This year we didn't pick out a jack-o'-lantern pumpkin to carve, but got some pie pumpkins and decorative gourds instead.
Goebbert's has a lot of fun things to do, especially for families with kids. There's a haunted house, pony and camel rides, a petting zoo, corn maze, hay rides, and pig races. We did the hay ride this year, which took us through the corn rows and a haunted barn!
We also bought pumpkin pie slices, apple cider donuts, caramel apple slices, and some other yummy desserts. It was a lot of fun, and a great way to enjoy what's left of the milder weather of Chicagoland.
