Hi.

Welcome to our family blog, where we document our adventures.

Rock Creek Farm Pumpkin Patch

Skylar and I had a fall checklist of things we wanted to do, and one of them was visit a pumpkin patch. We searched around for the nearest pumpkin patches and found one in Broomfield, CO, which ended up being perfect because I wanted to stop by Odd13 Brewing to pick up beer that day and the pumpkin patch was on our way back home.

When we arrived at the pumpkin patch, we were disappointed to find out that the pumpkins had frozen overnight and were no longer fresh. But they still said that we were more than welcome to walk the fields to try and find a good one! This patch was a little different than others because it offered "pick-your-own pumpkins," where you choose them right from where they had been growing, cut them from their vine, and take them home.

Luckily they had a bunch of bins full of good pumpkins they had picked out that hadn't been affected too badly by the snow. So we scavenged through all of those to find the perfect pumpkins for us. We ended up picking out three perfect pumpkins to take home to carve.

Another one of the reasons we chose this pumpkin patch was because they had a corn maze, caramel apples, and hot chocolate. They also offered a kid's play area (which we would probably be using in a few years!). So we got our maze passes and headed into the corn field. Little did we know, it was miles long. So we took our time and just walked around and took some photos.

We decided to cut our maze journey short and turned around to head back towards the entrance. Even though we didn't make it through the whole maze, we still had fun walking through and exploring all the corn husks and taking pictures.

After that, we headed out and stopped by a few more of the pumpkin patch stations before we headed home. Skylar picked up a caramel apple on the way out. It was a great day and we were able to check one more thing off of our fall to-do list! Hopefully next year when we come back, the pumpkins won't have suffered from the cold as much!
