Hackman's Farm Market

I recently got to accompany Big Arrow on his first school field trip. We had a great time experiencing one of fall's classic activities: the pumpkin patch.

I wrote all about our time at Hackman's Farm Market for the Columbus Visitor's Center blog. I also wrote about Hackman's for Visit Indiana. (One field trip, 3 blog posts. Sometimes I am a model of blogging efficiency.)

But I saved a few of my favorite photos to share today as we head into one of our last October weekends. I hope it gives a good sense of why fall in Indiana is so special to me.

Checking out a pony.

Crawling through the straw maze.

A view of the corn maze. Luckily some last minute rain saved their crop from the terrible summer drought.

Learning about gourds.

I loved these old tractors.

And my favorite memory of the day came toward the end. While Big Arrow was most excited to spend an entire morning with me, but WITHOUT Little Arrow tagging along, the minute he picked his pumpkin has asked to go home so he could give it to his little brother.

Perhaps, after all the hair pulling, pinching, crying, and tattling, they just might end up loving each other afterall.

It was a special "mom" moment, for sure.

This post is a part of Photo Friday at Delicious Baby.


  1. I love that photo of the two of you at the end! Such a happy picture....and yes, they will love each other, but don't expect the pinching, tattling, etc.... to end anytime soon.:)
