We were introudeced to one of the local hot spots for fall festivities last weekend. Phoenix got a birthday invitation to Plumper Pumpkin Patch in Portland. Say that fast three times. At this farm there is a pumpkin "cannon", a pumpkin throwing trebuchet, corn cob "guns", and giant apple slingshots. There are certainly many more activities to enjoy other than destroying/blasting produce, but what more could my three boys possibly ask for? I forsee many more visits in our future.
The birthday was a beautifully casual free for all. It was great fun and the cupcakes were amazing. =)
