Octoberfest at Oldfield Orchard & Bakery

Every year we go to a local farm to do the autumn hay ride, choose pumpkins to carve for Hallowe'en, and do lots of other fun stuff.

This year, we chose to try a different location.  We usually go to Galey Farm but this year we tried Oldfield.

We were greeted with a delicious pumpkin-shaped sugar cookie - yum!

The whole thing was geared towards smaller children, I think, but Jaymi still had a lot of fun there.

There were two miniature 'train rides'.

There were games to play (to win prizes) like a scavenger hunt,


 pumpkin bowling,

and a ring toss.

Jaymi noticed right away that we got a ticket (with admission) for a haunted house.  So this year was the first year she was ready to try that sort of thing out.
She wanted to go in but got really nervous anticipating in line.
She was mostly scared of it being so dark in the haunted house, and held my hand nice and tight!
She liked it, but definitely didn't like the people who jumped and said "Boo!" once in a while as we walked through.
I don't think she'd do it again.

There were lots of places to pose for pictures :)

There was a hay maze to crawl through,

 and a hay ride of course.

 Jaymi chose a pumpkin to bring home, and she won another one as well.

And Mark chose a strawberry-rhubarb pie. :D
