You may recall several months ago, I shared a listing of toddler friendly places we’ve visited with the quads. After writing that post I was eager to begin a new list, but a compilation of ten places may take another year. Instead of waiting for a list I’m starting a series, sharing as we go.
Last weekend we joined our local mothers of multiples club at the Flower Mound Pumpkin Patch, and I believe we began a new fall family tradition. George had to work, but Nisey and Poppa joined us for the experience and helped me manage four two year olds sans strollers. Here’s the scoop:
Flower Mound Pumpkin Patch
Double Oak Ranch
5100 Cross Timbers Rd
Flower Mound TX 75028
Seasonal from October 1st – 31st
9:00 am – 7:00 pm
Parking is $5 and ALL activities (e.g. train ride, hayride, corn mazes, bounce houses, photo opportuniites) are included
Buses and walk-ins are $1
Our crew enjoyed running through the rows and rows of pumpkins as well as the hayride. For older kids, there are bounce houses and corn mazes.
Running in a pumpkin patch can be dangerous business.
The pumpkin patch is a fantastic place for snapping photos. During our visit it was overcast, which made for great fall pictures.
There are hundreds of character cut outs perfect for photo ops. Our attempts to convince the quads to pose with the cut outs were futile, however.
Since the quads were unwilling to sit next to the cutouts, this is the only picture we snapped of them. This is a mere fraction of the cut outs we admired. Literally every popular children’s character is represented somewhere on the farm.
There isn’t a petting zoo, but we had a blast watching the farm animals. The main attraction? Horses snacking on pumpkins of course.
On weekdays only drinks are sold on site, so pack snacks or a picnic to enjoy during your stay. On Saturday and Sunday, vendors sell seasonal favorites such as kettle corn, grilled burgers, corny dogs (Fletcher’s!), and pumpkin bread.
After nibbling at our picnic lunch, these four gobbled bright, festive cupcakes provided by our local moms of multiples club.
Radio Flyer wagons are provided free of charge, you can borrow one to cart any bags, snacks, ect as well as any pumpkins you plan to purchase. No need to bring your own wagon!
Bathrooms are port-o-potties so plan ahead the best you can…I personally avoid those at all costs.
The Flower Mound Pumpkin Patch gave us a fantastic, nostalgic fall experience. What is your favorite fall activity?
