Schnepf Farms | Arizona Fall Tradition

Last week we braved the heat and celebrated fall at Schnepf Farms' Pumpkin & Chili Party. This was our second year attending the party, but it was unseasonably too hot for eating chili this year. We did, however, take full advantage of the plethora of pumpkins.

The sun was shining so brightly this year. We sweated our butts off on the hay ride, train ride, and in the pumpkin patch, but we wouldn't have missed it for anything! Schnepf Farms has activities and fun that our toddler loves, and we have fun just watching him enjoy it.

In typical toddler boy fashion, we headed first for the hayride and then to the train. There is nothing that makes our boy smile like the sound of a train whistle. Tractors are a close second, so we packed in some favorite activities quite easily in our short trip to the farm.

With the scorching sun and heat, we didn't stay long. Though we did take time to pick out a wagon full of pumpkins to take home. We added a jar of peach salsa and apple butter to our purchase on the way out as well. Even though this was a short visit to Schnepf Farms, it was a fun one.

Happy fall everyone!

What are your favorite fall traditions?

  1. One cannot deny the direction mainstream Hollywood "horror" films are going in, not a direction of true horror, but one of teen screams and cheap scares. And even though PG-13 Hollywood horror has created some gems like The Conjuring, for the most part they have disappointed this horror veteran. This film was no different, it just plain old wasn't scary, or thrilling, or suspenseful. To be fair I liked some the kills but other than that I could not find anything redeeming. happy death day online Its another sad attempt by Hollywood at horror, it just isn't scary. Like many other mainstream horror films, I found myself being bored, waiting for the next scare/kill, only to be disappointed by it. But I suppose if you are a 14 year old girl, like the majority of the theater was, then I suppose it might scare you, but for a man who has been a horror nerd since childhood, this just didn't do it at all for me, I was truly disappointed. the devil's candy release date

    The acting was just so generic it ruined many aspects of the film. Not only did I not relate with these characters, I didn't care if they died or not, which can be an essential aspect of such a horror film as this. Also in the tense moments of suspense, their acting wasn't convincing enough to make the scene actually suspenseful. watch Avengers Infinity War online free hd And another thing I just cant stand is that stupid CGI face-morphing that goes on. Not just in this movie, but in all movies, where the face screams but its mouth is CGI'ed to make it look bigger. Ugh it just sooooooo takes me out of the scare and honestly makes me laugh in embarrassment for whoever thought it looked good. As a horror veteran, these films make me sad, If you are an easily frightened child, go see it, but if you are a horror veteran like myself, this will only disgust you.
