Southern Belle Farm

Pumpkin patch here we come! My sister Jennifer, her husband Chris and my niece Keelie (or ferfer, dis, and Kiki as Micah calls them) came to visit for the weekend. We all went and visited Southern Belle Farm on Saturday and had a great time. It was a MILLION times better than the pumpkin patch we visited last year. There was so much more to do and the weather was great!We started the visit with the pumpkin patch...of course. Micah loved picking up the little baby pumpkins and the gourds, though he said ewwwww everytime he saw the gourds with bumps all over them.They had great set ups for picture taking with beautiful fall flowers and wagons and tractors. Unfortunately after Micah sat on the tractor once he did not want to get up. We finally dragged him away to go see the animals and thankfully that seemed to distract him enough.

We headed to the kiddie corral to see the cows and donkeys and Micah and Zach took a trip down the slide. I'm pretty sure Zach had more fun than Micah because when we saw another slide later Micah immediately started shaking his head and saying no, no, no!

They also had these cool bike/cart things to ride around a track so Micah and Zach gave them a spin.
We didn't get brave enough to drag two toddler/infants through the corn maze but on the way to go look at it we passed the corn husk air guns. We each took our three shots at the targets and Zach won a free drink! yay for me! After a quick lunch at the concession stand we watched the pig races. Micah liked it ok but wasn't interested enough to warrant making him stand in one place so it was off to the tractor again :)

The last stop of the day was the cow train. As soon as Zach sat in it with Micah he burst into tears and wanted to GET OUT! Keelie braved the trip though and had fun and Micah enjoyed waving to the train as it left and said bye about a hundred times so all was well.
If you haven't been to a pumpkin patch yet I definitely recommend Southern Belle...we will be returning their next year for sure!


  1. What great pictures! So much fun.

  2. I heard from some teachers earlier in the year that this was a great pumpkin patch. We are definately not going back to the other pumpkin patch from last year, but i'm not sure that I want to drive all the way to McDonough. Is it really worth it?

  3. Looks like you guys had fun! We rode by last weekend going to meet with some of our accounting clients. They headed over after we left and said their entire family come down to visit the farm. We will definitely try and take our little guys soon.

  4. Looks like fun. Micah is looking sooo much like Zach to me! You and your sister are also really looking alot alike as well! I don't know why I noticed this so much but the pictures were great. Hope the pregnancy goes well! I am down to 10 weeks!! YEAH!!(and kind of scary).Call me sometime!
