Walter’s Pumpkin Patch ~ Burns, Kansas




Walter’s Pumpkin Patch ~ Burns, Kansas


I don’t usually get to celebrate holidays with my grandkids, but I had the pleasure of visiting Walter’s Pumpkin Patch in Burns, Kansas (a suburb of Wichita). I’m used to the pumpkin patch up North where my kids grew up, which is entirely different from Walter’s.




It’s the first time in forever that all of us, meaning both my son’s and their families, that we were able to spend together. They both work for their father at different restaurants and can never get off at the same time.





Walter’s Pumpkin Patch has something for everyone and it was a lot of fun.  We got to see the pumpkin canon shoot some pumpkins, the kids went in the corn kernels, we went in the corn maze and got lost, fed the animals, and even shot some little squash at the targets.




And don’t forget the hay ride out to the pumpkin patch.



I was kind of sad that were any pumpkin snickerdoodles left because I really wanted to try them.




The kids had plenty of fun and I think that some of the big kids did too.





Cody went on the zipline and the train.

My 2nd most favorite part was the store at the end.  They had so many neat things to buy and my husband had to pretty much drag me out.  I was in my glory.




We left with a couple apple and pumpkin pies and couldn’t wait to get home to dig into them.






Still wish they had some pumpkin snickerdoodles though.  (oh, did I mention that already?)  I guess there is always next year.  Honestly, I don’t know who had more fun….the kids or the grownups!















It was nice just spending the day altogether and my favorite part was that we all got a picture together.  My first picture ever of all of together.

    Our family did a trip to our local pumpkin patch/fall playground last weekend! We got almost the exact same types of photos as you did, too. 🙂 Definitely one of my favorite memories each fall.
