Fiesta Farm Pumpkin Patch

Want to have some serious fun with your kids?  Go to Fiesta Farm!  My mom, sister, and niece were in town and we decided to take the kids out to enjoy the nice weather we were having.  We wanted to go to a pumpkin patch that had other activities for the kids to do.  This was just perfect.  This was actually our 2nd time to go, and I think it was just as much fun the second time around.

We started out by feeding the rabbits some carrot shreds.  Rhett wanted to make sure that all 25 rabbits each got a piece of "snack."

Even our shy Rhys loved feeding the animals.

The environment at the farm is so very relaxed and casual.  There are animals just walking around.  You never know when a goat or peacock might wander up!

Rhys and Rhett especially loved feeding the goats.

Some of you know that my mom, "Sugar," LOVES donkeys.  She could not resist feeding all of her food to this little guy.  Rhett was helping her by picking up all the little pieces of food that were knocked down on the ground.  

Fiesta Farm also has pony rides for the kids.  The first time we went, neither of the twins were interested in riding.  Rhett was super excited to give it a try this time.

While Rhett was riding, Rhys was giving herself a pep talk with Sugar.

And then, to everyone's surprise, Rhys decided to ride!  And she loved it!

Even sweet Ana took a ride on the pony.

Besides the animals to feed and ride, there are also several different play areas for the kids.  R&R really liked climbing all over these tires.

And there are nice places to just walk around and explore.

Look at this precious little Ana with her Sugar.

So much fun spending the day with her!

Tim was pretty much a baby hog the whole day.  Who can blame him?

During our visit, one of the girls that works on the farm came up and handed Caydee a baby goat.  She told us he was 6 days old!

Rhett couldn't wait for his turn to hold the goat!

Rhys couldn't be bothered with a baby goat.....She was busy playing in the large sandbox they have!

We visited the farm in October, so they also had a pumpkin patch.  We took a hayride through the pumpkin patch, which was a lot of fun.  

They also had several places for fall photos to be taken.  Would you believe this is the only picture I took with a pumpkin in it!  (Let me mention that our main goal was to get pictures of the kids in the pumpkins together.  OOPS)

I especially love the way the staff treats the guests like they are part of the family.  They were continually walking around telling the kids stuff about the animals, giving them more food to use, or asking if we needed anything.  Guests are allowed to just wander around at their own pace.  We will definitely be going back to the farm again!  

One funny memory about the trip that I want to remember is that Tim was really into taking selfies with all of the animals.  I'm not sure why it was so funny to me, but it was!

Here he is posing with a little goat.

And the selfies I stole from his phone.  

A fun day!  Can't wait to go back again!
