What to Do Today: Sept. 23

It's big, it's orange, and it's a whole lot of fun for a Wednesday afternoon. Check out the Big Orange Pumpkin Farm, open from 9am-6pm today (and every Monday-Friday; 10am-6pm every Saturday; and 12-6pm every Sunday through Nov. 7) at Bill Bates Cowboy Ranch in Celina (just north of Frisco). Kids of all ages will love the petting zoo and pumpkin patch - and the price of admission includes a fun hayride! $7; children younger than 2 free.

Get a glimpse of the cowboy way of life at the exhibit Views and Visions: Prints of the American West, 1820-1970, from 10am-5pm today (and continuing through Jan. 10) at Fort Worth's Amon Carter Museum. You'll see masterpieces from the museum's permanent collection that depict the landscapes, animals and peoples of the West. Yeehaw! Free.

Spend some one-on-one time with your little one (ages birth to 15 months) at Mother Goose Time at 1:30pm today at the Lewisville Public Library. Parents and babies will bond over stories, parachute play and more. But pack your diaper bag early - space is limited at this storytime! Free.
