A Visit to the Pumpkin Patch!

I absolutely love taking our kids to the Pumpkin Patch!  We  probably go at least 5 or 6 times every year.  Our first trip this year was to the Port Kells Nursery.  This is one of my favourite patches to visit, as there is so much for the kids to do there besides just picking out their pumpkins.  Another great part is that it is totally free to go to, with the exception of taking a hayride.  The charge for this is $5.00 (under 3 years is free) which the nursery will redeem towards the purchase of a pumpkin or plants.  We easily spend a couple of hours each time we visit.  A bonus feature of this particular nursery is that a few of the attractions are inside, because lets face it, Fall in B.C. usually involves a decent amount of rain… lol!  I only discovered this nursery a couple of years ago, so I wanted to share it in case you live in the area and are looking for somewhere new and fun to try 🙂
