Pumpkin Patch, Boise

On the final Sunday before we departed Boise we visited the The Farmstead Corn Maze and Pumpkin Fall Festival. Activities there included pumpkin patch-pick in the field, pumpkin patch- already gathered from the field, Fall festival, train rides, corn maze, haunted corn maze, straw or hay bale maze, child-sized hay bale maze, corn cannon, tractor-pulled hay rides, wagon rides, haunted trail, snacks and refreshment stand, restrooms, picnic area. It was a fabulous day with good sun shine and we all had a really wonderful time. Here are some of the splendid pictures captured there. We were accompanied by a Spanish family. Their son Mattheus is around the same age as Mira and they had a great time together.
Mattheus was angry for some reason and reluctant to go into the Fair.
Mattheus being lovingly persuaded to change his mood & go in and have fun
Mattheus has been successfully persuaded - he agrees to enter jail along with Mira

Caught up in a web !

Can you find me ?
