Have you heard of Barton Hill Farms? Barton Hill Farms is a scenic Texas farmstead near Bastrop, about 25 minutes or so from Austin. They have so much to do here! I went over the weekend with A, B, F and Baby G and I wish I had taken everyone, it was that much fun. They have a 5-acre corn maze, pumpkin patch (you can even pick out your favorite pumpkin), farm animals (goats and pigs), live Texas country & bluegrass music, and so many games that the whole family can enjoy. If you live in or around Austin I highly recommend that you check out Barton Hill Farms, you will not regret it and you are sure to make lots of family memories. I know we did! They are only open Saturdays and Sundays until November 5th so don't miss the last weekend coming up. Purchase your tickets here and let me know about your trip.
Then, F and B rode on the cow tractor train. It was so fun to listen to F as he was riding the train, he was so loud I could hear everything he said :).
I am not sure what you call these, hamster balls? The kids had a blast crawling inside and pushing each other. Want to wear your kids out? Try these - they work well.
There is lots of open area to run around and play throughout the farm. There are also several tether ball stations and a giant trampoline area towards the back of the farm. We didn't end up jumping while we were there but it looked like a lot of fun. There was so much to do, we didn't do everything. Oh, and they have lots of food: BBQ, Tex-Mex, snow cones, Kettle corn, bottled water and fountain sodas so come hungry! There are plenty of picnic tables and picnic areas to enjoy your food. Barton Hill Farms is definitely a place that I will return to in the future and if you don't have plans this weekend, you really should check them out.
