Saturday morning at the pumpkin farm

Trips to Swan's Pumpkins in Caledonia always seem to be frigid affairs. Fun, for sure, just be sure to dress in several layers. But not this year, or at least not today.

The weather was beyond perfect for a morning trip to the Pumpkin Farm. We went out to Swan's with several friends to walk through the corn maze, take a hay ride, feed goats, eat caramel apples and just about everything else you do at a pumpkin farm. (The one thing we didn't do was take home a pumpkin ... though that put us in the strong minority.)

Pictures are below. A quick note for families: It's a good deal. We bought wristbands for $6, which covered everything except pony rides and food. It's a nice deal for a half day of entertainment.

Swan's is located at Highway H and 5 Mile Road in Caledonia. Directions are here.

This giant inflatable pumpkin greets visitors to the Swan Pumpkin Farm.

There's lots to do at Swan's, but it's all about bringing home some pumpkins.

Taking a hay ride through the corn fields.

Tickets are just $6 for an all-day wristband for activities.

This goose was quite chatty.

The Pumpkin Police were watching the grounds.

Pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere ...

Swan's won't run out soon!
