Punkin' Chunkin'

Little did you know, oh Fairfaxian (?), that the best time to visit Cox Farms for their Fall Festival is not during October in the lead-up to Halloween.  Well, not if you fancy watching old jack-o-lanterns being hurled through the air at high speeds or dropped from tall cherry pickers. 

Those two little dots mid-air are pumpkins, indeed!
Chloe and I headed to the festival this year for their Pumpkin Madness weekend (aka, the first weekend in November)!  We went with our friend Taylor and her mommy, Grandma, and Grandpa and were able to enjoy Cox Farm's Fall Fest without the crowds.  We even had a coupon so it wasn't as expensive as I thought it might be...HINT:  create an account on their members page and you get a few discounts once in a while!  We rode on the hayride (fun until the scary and startling train whistle) and slid down the big slides.  And of course, we watched some rotten pumpkins meet their demise.  Who wouldn't love that?  It was a great time!  And although it's closed for this year, you might remember this event for next year!
