by Deborah A couple of weekends ago we spent the afternoon with our three grandsons at Miller's Farm in Manotick (6158 Rideau Valley Drive north). This is a family friendly venue where kids are encouraged to be kids.
There is a lot to see and do. For a small fee we took a wagon ride to the pumpkin field where the kids picked out their own pumpkins.
We then headed off for a walk through the corn maze.
The farm includes a market where there are fall mums, decorative gourds and corn, and a beautiful gift shop with seasonal products for Thanksgiving and Halloween. We stocked up on fresh produce; apples for lunches and squash for soup.
Our youngest grandson enjoyed jumping among the haystacks and poking his head through the cut outs to have his picture taken.
We closed out the day with candy apple treats for all. Bring your camera as there are many great photo ops. Deborah is the grandmother to three boys ages 13, 10 and 4.
