When life gives you pumpkin, make pumpkin spice lattes.

Fall has begun, and this is the time when people go pumpkin crazy. Pumpkin picking might be one of the most popular activities of the season.

Фермы и тыквы? ⠀ ⠀ Осень только началась, но все магазины уже создают настроение для Хэллоуина?Ева ждёт не дождётся, когда я уже дам ей наесться конфет наконец-то? ⠀ ⠀ Местные фермы начинают торговать тыквами и организовывают вокруг ярмарки разные движушки для детей?? ⠀ ⠀ Вообще вот эта американская манера на ровном месте из ничего устроить праздник не даёт мне тут умереть от скуки??? ⠀ ⠀ К примеру забег поросят?? ⠀ ⠀ Честно, если б мы там стояли с Евой сами...ну реально ничего такого, побежали свинки и ок, но кричащие мужики, женщины и дети??...Боже это просто не передать какие же они эмоциональные и веселые, ставят ставки на этих хрюшек, шутят и заливаются истерикой ну вот просто с ничего???В общем насмеялись сегодня на славу не смотря на плохую погоду?? ⠀ ⠀ Вход на ферму бесплатный, но любое движение типо мини зоопарка, поездить на лошадке, полазить на всяких зонах из сена, колёс, карусели и тд стоят 3-5 тикетов(1 тикет 1 доллар), если у вас ребёнок сидит в слинге, то за него тоже кстати заплатить придётся)) ⠀ ⠀ Тыкву можно выбрать на любой вкус и цвет, я не любитель ее ни в каком виде, мне просто нравится на них смотреть, какие «шедевры» создаёт природа? ⠀ ⠀ Вообще фермерские продукты конечно в 1000 раз вкуснее, чем магазинные, но и дороже естественно в разы?Еще вот эта манера все красиво раскладывать не даёт шанса удержаться от ненужных покупок?? ⠀ ⠀ Надеюсь у нас перестанет херачить этот дождь и я ещё куда-то обязательно заеду и нормально все покажу? ⠀ ⠀ #фермасша#жизньвсша#хеллоуин#тыквынаферме#ферма#чикаго#харьковвчикаго#helloween#жизньвамерике#осеньвчикаго#autumniscoming#autumninchicago#погодавчикаго#mylifeinusa#lifeinusa #америкаинсайд

You haven’t lived unless you’ve been to Didier Farms Pumpkinfest. Everyone loves all the extravagant memories from the Lincolnshire/Prairie View Farm. The farm favorite features hayrides, pony rides, camel rides, kiddie rides, an exotic petting zoo, a parakeet exhibit, a corn maze and pig races (the sprinting porkies only gallop on the weekends). Don’t forget to visit Grandma D’s Bake Shop for scrumptious pies, cookies, fudge, homemade apple cider, kettle corn and pumpkin donuts. The farm’s doors are open through Sunday, October 30. The farm, originally purchased by John Link, the father of Mary Sue Didier, has been owned by a Didier descendant since 1912.

You’ll be amazed by their maize mazes. Richardson’s Adventure Farm & Corn Maze is known for having the world’s most massive corn maze. This year’s theme to the renowned maze is celebrating the Spring Grove farm’s 20th anniversary. The design features the elements of their farm, from their overlooking structure of the labyrinth to the barn, to the Christmas Tree Farms, to the pumpkins and the tulip fest launched earlier this year. The Spring Grove area spans 33 acres of land and is equipped with 11 miles of trails. Besides the famous maze, the Adventure Farm features another five mazes, a zip line, a pumpkin patch, Zorbing rides (a ride inside a giant 11-ball available on weekends), live pig races,  a wooded picnic area, free campfires, pedal carts, pedal trikes, a goat farm, a farm carousel and more. Richardson Adventure Farm runs on select days through October 30.
