Black Island Farm

Today was a lot of fun! Cory and I, my mom, Lisa, Tory, and the kids headed to Syracuse to spend the day at Black Island Farms in Syracuse. We had a ton of fun. When we first got there we hopped on the hay ride (that was missing hay...) out to a pumpkin patch to choose a pumpkin.



Once in the patch they let you loose to go pick out a pumpkin. It's a shame they didn't have a big selection...



These are the ones we chose...

Then it was back on the hayless hay ride to put the pumpkins in the car.



After dumping the pumpkins, we headed off to see what other fun things there was to do. We started at the slides made out of hay... (finally, there was hay!)

Bradlee had a blast and was brave enough to go alone.



So was Cory...





Sadly, COry had to leave to go to work, but the fun continued. The kids discovered the crooked play house...



And then the train ride that took them through the corn...





Next was the corn box. It was tricky keeping Brock from eating it.



Then the seesaw...

On to the big bouncy pumpkin. It took her 3 times to get the guts to stay inside but clearly, she loved it.
Then we ventured into the kiddie maze.

And lastly the petting zoo

And we were given a fond farewell with this site...

There was also pig racing, which was fun, but I didn't want to waste the time to upload pictures of pigs... I hope you understand. Finally we wore ourselves out and headed home. I crashed on the chair while the girls painted their pumpkins.

It was a really fun day. Even the trip back to Syracuse a second time to get Tory's lost phone was fun :). I love spending time with family.
