Goebbert’s Farm - Chicago Area Pumpkin Patch

Last year, we decided that Goebbert’s Farm in South Barrington would be part of our Halloween tradition. We definitely like Goebbert’s (up north, FREE admission) better than Bengston’s (down south, $12/pp admission - that adds up for a family fast!). You can pay to see animals or to ride rides at Goebbert’s, but we have a good time without those activities!

Like last year, it was rainy in the morning, but beautiful in the afternoon! Yes, on Sunday's in the fall, Mia only wears Bears gear haha.  We went a few weeks ago, and Mia is still talking about “Pumpkins everywhere. Mia picked one. Heavy. Mia strong. Daddy picked one. See camel. Ride slide. Weeee! Drive fire truck. See Pooh. Have fun pumpkins...” And Doug told me numerous times with a big happy I-love-my-family-SO-much smile that he loves our family tradition of picking out pumpkins...
...driving the fire trucks and trains, walkin' around...
...riding the slide, taking pictures with all the cutouts...
 ...and eating corn on the cob and apple glazed and cinnamon sugar donuts...

We definitely recommend!
And I couldn't help myself...Ready for another same time last year comparison??
With Halloween festivities in a few days, I better get crackin’ on making Mia’s costume, eek!

I love the "same time last year" comparison pictures! Looks like Mia had fun! We have a place here called Cox Farms that we go to every year, sorta our little Fall Tradition. And it does get PRICEY! $15 per person ages 2 and older! Wha?!? Wish we could find a cool free farm to go to!!
