Just because....

The Pick of the Patch…

Boo and I were excited to be gifted tickets to the Schnepf Farms Pumpkin and Chili Party!  We have been blessed to attend before and every time we go it is such a fun and amazing experience! With temps still in the 90’s here in Phoenix, it has yet to really feel like fall to us… Yet, being at the farm was so fun and we felt immersed by the fall spirit! This is a wonderful family farm that makes you feel like you are transported away from the city.

There’s so much to see and do here… you could easily spend the whole day!

As soon as we entered Boo was excited to see they were doing face painting! Boo has sensory issues and does not like his face to be touched but the young lady kindly painted him a ghost on his arm and he was so happy! After, we walked over to the Train Depot and we had a wonderful chat with the conductor as we waited for the next train ride. Boo was grinning ear to ear when the kindly conductor let him sit at the front of the train and showed him how to make the train whistle blow!

We had a lovely chat with the friendly train conductor!

After our train ride we headed over and spent time at the Petting Zoo before having a blast riding the roller coaster and other fun amusement rides.  After all that fun Boo was ready for a snack so we headed over to the Country Store and Bakery where he enjoyed homemade pumpkin pie complete with whip cream! He loved every single bite!

Full of energy from his delicious pumpkin pie, we headed over to take a Hay Ride! The ride was relaxing and so much fun! Boo loved sitting on the hay as we leisurely rode around the farm looking at all the awesome sights and fun things to do! He was especially excited to see Reindeer that he promptly told me must work for Santa and they were having a vacation in Arizona 🙂

Boo was excited that our hayride was pulled by a tractor!

Boo’s eyes lit up when he saw they had a corn maze! Honestly…. I was not sure I wanted to do this because I have a weird fear of getting lost… I know. I know… it’s just silly but what can I say? 😉 Anyhow, Boo was thrilled to do this and I was not about to squelch the fun– so into the maze we went! I am so glad we did! Boo led the way like a champ and we laughed and had fun the whole time! It was great time and when he finally led us out of the maze he was super excited and proud of himself!

Finally it was time to head over to the pumpkin patch and search for the great pumpkin! Boo was thrilled looking at so many, checking for just the right one. He looked them all over with great seriousness and took his time looking them over. We were in no rush so I just let him take his time and enjoy the moment. He laughed with happiness as he found the pick of the patch— he had found the perfect pumpkin to bring home and carve with Mama! He was so proud to show me the one he picked–and for me the joy was in watching my little boy excited to be here at this amazing farm…

Boo has autism as well as severe developmental delay– he is 17 but developmentally around 7 or 8.  I will always have a little boy with me who is thrilled to pick out his Halloween pumpkin and we will always do so here at Schnept Farms.  Not only is it an amazing family friendly place to visit, I have noticed upon every visit we have here that the staff is especially wonderful with with special needs families as well. Everyone we came across during our visit was amazingly kind and helpful with Boo.

Boo LOVES finding old cars and trucks and was thrilled to see this one at the farm 🙂

I’d love to hear from my readers– What has been your fave fall memory so far this year? And to my local readers— I strongly suggest a visit  with your family to Schnepf Farms Pumpkin and Chili Party to make some unforgettable  memories of your own! I heard from a neighbor today that our local grocery chain Frys offers discount tickets. Be sure and check out their website too because they have other amazing festivals throughout the year that are fun for the whole family!

  1. Looks like you all had such an amazing time. Pumpkin picking is one of my very favorite things to do during October. I love all the fall festivals and apple picking. Sounds like this is a must visit patch. It’s so nice to see a smile on a face and thank you for sharing your journey with autism with us ❤️

    1. Hi Jamie 🙂 Thanks so much! It was such an amazing and relaxing day 🙂

  2. This looks like so much fun! Southern California has also been very warm so it’s hard to get into the autumn spirit. I’ve always wanted to go on a Hay Ride but the corn maze would freak me out a bit. haha Looks like you had a blast!

    1. Hi Nina! We had an awesome time!! 🙂

  3. Very cute pictures and story, sounds like you guys had so much fun! I’ve been meaning to go to a pumpkin patch, and now I’m so inspired/motivated to go!!

    1. Thanks so much sweetie! We had such a great time and Boo was so brave leading the way in the maze! 🙂

  6. Schepf Farms sounds terrific. This post makes me nostalgic for when we lived in Phoenix. Look at those beautiful skies! Over here (Manchester, UK) it’s great weather for growing pumpkins – but so grey and wet and miserable. I know where I’d rather be 😉

    1. Hi! I’d love to visit Manchester one day 🙂 Spending time in the UK is on my bucket list 🙂

  7. peanutandcounting

  8. It looks like a fun place. Going to a farm can be fun. I live in a crowded city, sometimes life away from the city can be rejuvenating.

    1. Hi Vinil! It is so nice to get out of the city a little bit 🙂

  9. Pumpkin patches that offer more than just picking a pumpkin are my favorite to go to. We have one about 20 minutes from us and they offer a lot of the same amenities that Schepf Farm. It is also our go to for picking pumpkins.

It’s especially wonderful to take time to do things like this while kids are young enough to enjoy it and make memories they can cherish.

    1. Hi Dr. Banks! We absolutely made some wonderful memories this day… I cherish the moments with my kiddos and love family time so much… 🙂

    1. Hi Dawn! I’m so glad you guys had fun at your Pumpkin Patch too 🙂

  88. Shannon Sawicki

    Looks like a great time with some great weather. We were fortunate enough with blue skies but our patch was much muddier.

    1. Hi Shannon 🙂 We were so blessed with this lovely day 🙂

  89. What a fun fall trip! It sounds like your family had a blast. I’m always up for anything pumpkin + chili!

  90. Looks like so much fun! Happy Fall and Happy Halloween!

    1. Thanks so very much!!!! 🙂

  91. I love pumpkin patches! I’m right there with you, it’s been so hot in Florida it hasn’t felt like fall but pumpkin patches and fall festivals are the perfect thing to get you in the festive spirit.

    1. Hi Christina… we were in Florida back in May and we really loved it! 🙂

  92. Sarah

    Great pics! Woah 90s that is hot! Looks like you guys had a great time together 🙂 what a fun family day!

  93. This looks like so much fun, haven’t been to a pumpkin patch in years. Glad y’all had a lovely family time.

  94. Barbara Alfeo

    Looks like a super fun day!

  95. Oh I just love pumpkin patches. I’ve only been to two but they’re always so much fun, especially the train rides and apple ciders.

    1. Hi Jennifer 🙂 My son loves the apple cider too 🙂

  96. It sounds like a fun day for you guys! I love going to pumpkin patch in the fall. There are so many things to do there and it was so fun.

  97. We love pumpkin paths. I hope Lyle still loves them when he is older.

    1. Hi Magen 🙂 I’m sure he will 🙂

  98. We traditionally would hit the corn mazes and pumpkin patch every fall, but we missed this year’s! Your pictures and descriptions made me wish we had been able to go! We did do apple orchards though, so that’s at least something. Looks like you had a great time!

    1. Hi Amy! I wish we had apple orchards here…. that sounds lovely 🙂

  99. The corn maze looks really fun. It would also be exciting to play with the pumpkins.

  100. Wow, what a lovely way to pick a pumpkin for the family. I especially loved the pictures with Boo and the pumpkin. He looked so happy and excited. I couldn’t be more proud of the way you are parenting boo.

    1. Aww… thanks so much Rakhi!!!! I feel so blessed to be his Mama 🙂

  101. Pumkin and chili party – what could be more wonderful event to join than that! Sometimes people think that autumn is so boring but when there’re different seasonal happenings around it makes the season so interesting and fun. I don’t know why but seeing pumpkins makes me smile and gives a happy feeling.

    1. Hi Tiina! Seeing all the pumpkins makes me smile too 🙂

  102. I`ve heard of this fun activity before but I`ve never done it. We don`t have a big commercialized Halloween culture here besides the religious aspect of it.

    ❀ Grace ❀

    1. Hi 🙂 Here in the states Halloween is pretty much celebrated as a super fun day for all… I remember way back when I was little the excitement of selecting a pumpkin to carve then going trick or treating with my little brother 🙂

  103. Wow, a pumpkin patch, reminds me of Cinderella~ Did you guys try to bring one home and do some halloween pumpkin fun?

    1. Hi Tiffany! We had so much fun carving it together and we saved seeds to try our hand at growing some later 🙂

  104. Looks like such a fun day! I still need to take my son to the pumpkin patch. This one looks awesome!

    1. Thanks Victoria! 🙂

  105. sadhna shanker

    Wow a pumpkin farm is so colourful to look at. It seems to be a great experience. Near nature it is always relaxing and invigorating!

    1. Hi Sadhna! We find them relaxing too 🙂

  106. This is wonderful and y’all had a great time especially your son! Love the nickname Boo btw not sure what the meaning is but awesome! Picking out big orange pumpkins with kids is the best so fun making memories.

    1. Hi Tosha! When he was born he was almost 3 months preemie and super small…. he was so tiny his dad made the comment,,, “He could fit in my boot and somehow we then started calling him “Boots” as the years went on it got shortened to Boo but I’m not sure when 🙂

  107. Looks like you guys had a blast! I love this time of year, Fall is my favorite season and I love all these pumpkin!

    1. Thanks Nina! Fall is so awesome! 🙂

  108. So far this year, my favorite memory was taking my kids to Minefaire. They loved it. They were able to meet their favorite Youtube stars and really connected with some new young gammers like themselves.

    1. Hi Elle that sounds really fun! 🙂

  109. This looks like so much fun! It just reminded me that I was planning to take my 2yo to the pumpkin patch here in South Florida. I think our weather is the same, so my sentiments are similar to yours about it not feeling like fall. I’m glad Boo enjoyed it!

  110. Looks like you and your son had a lot of fun. Nice post.

    1. Thanks Colleen 🙂

  111. Looks like you had a great time at the pumpkin patch! If take that weather over our cold and wet Chicago weather! We like to go apple picking as our fall tradition but the stormy weather and rain made it impossible this fall. 😣

    1. Hi Ria! Apple picking would be so amazing….

  112. I have not been feeling well lately because of blood glucose fluctuations. So there was no trip to the farm for us this year. Nevertheless, my sons did drive down to the nearby farms for apples and the roundest set of pumpkins I have ever seen!

    1. Hi Eilee! I hope you are feeling better soon…. being diabetic I can understand how glucose fluctuations effect how we are feeling….

  113. This is such a lovely activity picking a pumpkin with a munchkin. Loved your post and loved all the pictures.

    1. Aww thanks so much Jiya!! 🙂

  114. Love this time of year and these places!

    1. Hi Ryan! We do too! 🙂

  115. The corn maze looked like so much fun!! What a great way to spend the day.

    1. Thanks Candice!! 🙂

  116. Looks like you guys had such an amazing time!

    1. Thanks so much Nakia! 🙂

  117. This is so cool. I wish I can take my little one to a pumpkin patch. Must be a nice tradition.

    1. Thanks Karen! He looks forward to the patch every year 🙂

  118. Looksnlike you had a great day! I have a brother and brother in law with aspergers so appreciate how hard it can be

    1. Thanks Mary! I had such a lovely day with my little boy 🙂

  119. Pumpkin patch sounds to be fun! We don’t typically grow pumkins where I live. I would love to spend a day like this.
    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Your welcome! Thanks for reading 🙂

  120. It looks like you had a wonderful time at the pumpkin patch! You should resize your photos to make them larger. If you click on them, they become full-size, but that would be a great way to show off the great pictures of the pumpkin patch!
