The Epic Fall Day With My Sister's Boys -- Part Three: The Search For The Great Pumpkin

The third and final stop on my Epic Autumn Day In October with my young nephews was Bush-N-Vine farm located on SC HWY 321 between the towns of York and Clover. 

Our mission: to locate the Great Pumpkin....or rather a fair-sized pumpkin for them to make a really cool-looking Jack-O-Lantern.

Aside from being a really great source of organic fruits and vegetables, Bush-N-Vine farm also has really great activities for kids and families in October, including a really nifty hayride to the pumpkin patch where you can pick your own pumpkin.  

Bush-N-Vine's York stand located on the farm itself.
An excellent stop for real organic vegetables at reasonable prices.
Pumpkins and gourds of all kinds...but alas no Great Pumpkin.

All Aboard!

Tyler might have found a winner!
"Hey I wanna ride too!"
The tractor arrives to take us back to the stand.
Thus our adventure comes to an end.

The boys had a blast and I really enjoyed spending the day with them and spoiling them like a good uncle. They enjoyed all the activities from the festival, to the reenactment, and finally the hayride. Both ended up sleeping on the ride back to their home completely tuckered out.

Our epic Saturday in October comes to an end.... with smiles all around.


We definitely have to do it again next year!
