hey we are thinking of going to the pumpkin patch this weekend, but i'm not sure which one to go to.<br><br>
something kinda close to the city (we live in in NE) cause my baby hates the car. also someplace that has caramel apples would really make my day.<br><br>
TIA. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

well, we ended up going to sauvie island pumpkin patch. if anyone else is thinking of going there i just want to warn you, there are lots of bees and lots of parents yelling at their kids. so, not the happiest of pumpkin patches.

we didnt really enjoy Lee farms, we had a good day as a family, but the rides were janky, everything was expensive, and it was CROWDED.

We went to <a href="http://www.plumperpumpkins.com/" target="_blank">Plumper Pumpkin Patch</a> and Tree Farm on Saturday and had a blast. We paid $3 a person for the "extra" stuff and Olivia loved it. The hay ride was an additional $2 a person, but dd is scared of tractors <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug">: so of course we didn't go. The food was totally unhealthy, but not particularly expensive. We packed most of our lunch and bought kettle corn <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yummy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yummy">:<br><br>
There also wasn't much traffic during the weekend to and from the farm. That was always our beef with Sauvie's.

We went to Fir Point Farm and loved it!! It's in Aurora, so not too far of a drive. They even have the pumpkin patched separated by pumpkin size. There were pony rides, inflatable slides, an area where you could feed the goats, etc. My daughter totally loved it! I highly recommend this place.<br><br><a href="http://www.firpointfarms.com" target="_blank">www.firpointfarms.com</a>

I think we're going Friday. I've been to Lee's several times. It looks like this place has more animals, which the kids love. Lee's can be hit or miss with the animals. DS will love the tractor.<br>
Fir Point's produce looks yummy but that would be for me not the kids.
