I love October. The changing weather, the fun decor, Halloween, and of course; the chance to take the kids to a farm for some pumpkin pickin'! Last weekend my kiddos were able to visit the new Rocker 7 Farm Patch here in the West Valley with their Mimi and Papa Dee for a day of fun on the farm. We actually live right down the road from this farm and when we saw what was being put in there we were all really excited! There are so many fun activities for the kids to do! The West Valley doesn't always have as many activities for the kids as other areas around town, it seems like we are always having to travel to the East Valley or Phoenix to attend fun venues and events. Now we have a great farm to visit in the Fall in our own neighborhood! Yay!

The first thing the kids wanted to do was the corn maze. My older kids loved running through it and trying to find their way out. And don't worry, we only lost one kid. Lol! 4 out of 5 isn't bad, right? I'm a huge fan of corn mazes, they are so much fun for all ages.
The boys also enjoyed climbing on some of the sand-filled tires they have stacked up for the kids to play on. Boys can't turned down climbing on tires! Or on anything, for that matter. ;)
There is also an educational barn on the farm where the kids can learn all about farm animals such as cows and chickens. Blake loved trying his hand at milking a cow!
And Neela loved the beautiful sunflower garden. Neela and big, pretty flowers just go hand-in-hand. And yes, she is coated in corn dust. See the picture below!
My kids loved burying themselves in this pile of corn feed. So. Much. Fun! There were all kinds of different things to keep the kids busy and exploring.
The farm also has a concession stand where they sell Kettle Corn and all kinds of goodies to enjoy while you visit. And you definitely won't want to miss the darling train that drives around for the little guys to ride on. Rocker 7 Farm Patch is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 9am-6pm. This coming weekend is the last full weekend they will be open. They will be open the following weekend on the 31st only. This is a great place for the whole family to enjoy a fun-filled, Fall day! Head on over this weekend and support a wonderful, West Valley event!
