There was a Groupon recently for half off admission to The Pumpkin Ranch in Winterset. So for $9 buckaroos Todd and I got to enjoy romping around Mitt Romney's face, thanks to the presidentially-themed maze cutout. (The Obama side was just a straight line to the exit with a bunch of free stuff along the way. Hee hee just kidding.) Anyway, it is a great place to take your kids and spend a beautiful fall afternoon trekking through a corn maze, then riding a tractor-pulled wagon to a pumpkin patch to select the gourd of your dreams!
Man of my dreams holding gourd of my dreams... What more could a girl want!
There was a little playground area with swings and an inflated jumping house thing for the kids, and a little food truck with awesome pulled pork sandwiches and other delicious food items. Inside the barn where you pay there was also some yummy cider and popcorn. It was a fun day, definitely worth the money and the drive (~45 min. from West Des Moines/Waukee) So get excited for next year! Here is a link to their website.
