We took Taj to the Colony Pumpkin patch again this year. It is a little country inside the city. The patch is literally only 6 blocks away from where I work. We had a lot of fun there. First thing Taj wanted to do was play in the corn box. Yep, that is right instead of sand they put corn in the large box.

In North Liberty one can have chickens in the city.
I believe Iowa City is the only city in the corridor who cannot
at this time. They are working on it.
One can have up to six chickens.
I just love the bond these two have.

The pumpkin patch has a large play area for children to play. The first thing Taj wanted to play on was the giant web.
Naturally the web shooter came out, it has to when one is on a web.
Taj was having so much fun he kept calling out to his Papa to come down too.
Of course, Papa being the great Papa he is...down he went.
After running around having Papa be the monster it was time for the bouncy house. Taj loves bouncy houses.
As usual we had a hard time getting him out of the bouncy house.
You can see how much fun he was having. He had no idea I was taking his picture.
I believe we are planning on this being an annual tradition as long as we have someone interested. There is a corn maze too, one can go at night with flashlights and there are night hay rack rides and bon fires too. We will keep this in mind when grandchildren are too old for the fun in the playground.
Do you have any annual fall traditions?
