Our Tomachoff Farms Pumpkin Patch Fun

We have a yearly tradition to go to the Tomachoff Farms pumpkin patch and have a blast each year!  This year we got to get in free for posting on our blog, and considering we are cutting out all "extras", I was very excited about that!  There are a lot of fun things to do there and the kids love it every year.  My only complaint is that it's not very wheelchair accessible.  It is flat, which is nice, but it is dirt and bumpy grass.  If you had your freewheel on your chair (we can't get ours to attach to Madi's chair unfortunately), I think you would be fine, but without it, it's not idea.  Anyhow, here are some photos of our fun...

This is David's younger brother Mark, his wife Kim, and their two sons Nathan and Caleb.  We go with them every year :)

(I think Madi kissed the pony 200 times.  That girls needs to get in a therapeutic riding program!)

  We look forward to going again next year!

And in other news.... Ramya has a sedated MRI tomorrow morning bright and early.  She needed an MRI of her brain to make sure she doesn't have any cysts/growth prompting her early puberty.  I knew that Dr. Moss, our neurosurgeon, was wanting an MRI of her head and back soon, to check for tethering as well as shunt placement, so I had the two MRIs coordinated so that she would only have to be sedated once.  Anyhow, please pray that they will let me be with her when she falls asleep and when she wakes up and please pray that she does well with everything.  Thanks so much!

looks like fun - i'm glad you were able to go and showcase the fun you had. it isn't the most wheelchair accessible i'm sure - but few outdoor places are. sad, but true :( i wonder if a paved path at least through some parts would be helpful? I mean maybe not through a corn maze but other portions.

I hope and pray Ramya does well. take care.

Yes, sadly not many are. I think a paved path would help a lot! Other things, though, are that they have no accessible bathrooms, only non-accessible porta poties, so we basically had to just change/cath in the car. Also, there is only 1 handicap accessible spot, so if you don't get it, you can't park anywhere close, unless there is a spot in their tiny first lot open. It seems they could easily have 3 or 4 spots open so people could at least get closer to the entrance with wheelchairs. It didn't matter for us as we had the girls in a wagon, but those things may make it hard for many to visit, sadly.

Fun! That adorable pony tried to eat Esra's joystick console on her powerchair. All the lights must have looked like a snack. We now have pony bite marks on the console as a funny reminder from our day there. So glad you had fun. I do agree about the terrain, parking and bathrooms. Lacking but not terrible. And try getting a powerchair in the veggie patch! Or driving through the corn maze. Bumpety-bump.
