Pumpkin Patch 2015

Bobbing for apples, hayrides, farmer’s markets; there is just something special about the activities of fall.

One of those fun things about fall, those typical bucket list items, is a pumpkin patch. We try to go every year, now that we have kids. And I gotta say, going with the kids now is a whole lot more fun than when we went and Gracie was a baby.
