Our family went to the Maize at the Pumpkin Patch a couple of days ago. We had a fabulous time. And we were there a lot longer than planned. We left home at 9:30 in the morning and didn’t make it back until 2:30 pm. Wow, that is a lot of time to spend at a maze and pumpkin patch. Halloween is about three weeks away, so there’s still time for you take your little ones to the fun Maize at the Pumpkin Patch (save $2 with this coupon). And of course, pick up some pumpkins while you are there. You’ll get your money’s worth.
It’s been raining since Friday (started right after work), so my plans to build a roof over my roof this weekend has been delayed. Summer doesn’t officially end for another 2+ weeks, but the cool and wet weather sure feels like Fall. In fact, while I’ve been couped up inside, I’ve been thinking about the next holiday: Halloween. In my opinion, it’s the best holiday of the year. I can’t wait for Halloween and I can’t wait to visit The Maize at The Pumpkin Patch. We went last year and had a fun time. BTW, you can save $2 on admission with this online coupon.
If you’re planing on going to a pumpkin patch maze, I have a deal for you. Readers of my Portland blog can save $2 off The MAiZE at The Pumpkin Patch over at Sauvie Island. Regular admission (before coupon) for their cornfield maze is $7 for adults and kids 13 years and older. It’s only $5 for seniors and children six to twelve. Admission is free for kids five and under.
My kids and I attended the Howloween event at the Oregon Zoo yesterday. The event featured activities throughout the zoo, but the main activity was the scavenger hunt. My kids loved the scavenger hunt. In fact, they were more interested in finding things than were at looking at the animals. Strange, right? They’re at the zoo and the animals were their secondary focus.
The current forecast is rain for Halloween night. If you don’t want your kids to get too wet, consider trick-or-treating at the mall or other locations in the Portland metro area. Check out the trick or treating mall list I compiled for 2012. Good luck and stay safe and dry!
