Inside Look | Skinny Bones
Everywhere you look there's a story unfolding, and we didn't have to go farther than our local pumpkin patch to find one! Normally I keep our personal life on our family blog - KINDRED STORY - but reaching out to local businesses and telling their stories is a new passion of mine as a photographer, so you will see more of our treasured community gems here.
The place in question? Skinny Bones! Skinny Bones is a family-operated business just south of Blair, Nebraska and boasts many fun attractions like a top-ranked 10-acre corn maze, pumpkin patch, hay rack ride, corn pool, face painting, jumping pillow, petting zoo, race tracks and slides. With the exception of concessions, gifts & pumpkins, admission covers everything. (For hours and rates, check out their site here.) Jeff & Maria Bledsoe are the kindest owners and you can tell they love the attraction and experience they've created.
Last Friday, The Mister took a day off of work and we loaded up the Littles for a late afternoon/evening of fun in the golden sun. And boy did we have fun! The highlights...
swimming in corn • Milo fell in love with a chicken and chased it with abandon • sliding at top speed! • feeding and petting miniature donkeys • trying not to fall over in a sideways house • Mad Cow ride • photo op with ET • face painting! • feasting on kettle corn, BBQ pork nachos, & an M&M-coated caramel apple (still salivating over that one...) • playing with pumpkins (I promise we didn't hurt any, Maria!) • racing peddle cars • bouncing to our hearts content • swooshing down Franken-slide
As the rose-colored sun went down & the Littles tuckered out, we meandered back to our car and headed home for a night of rest and reliving fun memories.
Thank you, Skinny Bones, for such a wonderful time and for helping us write one more page in our family story! We can't wait to come back :D
