Bobbing for apples, hayrides, farmer’s markets; there is just something special about the activities of fall.
This might be my favorite season.
Of, course, I say that and then, winter comes and I’m all, “OH winter!! I LOVE you, too!”
Nevertheless, fall is a favorite. It’s at least in the top four ranking of seasons.
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.
You get moments like this.
You get rubber duck races,
and rides on plastic horses.
You can’t forget to take the gramma, who is always available for baby snuggles!
As is the mama.
It was so much fun, that after a few hours, the kids looked like this:
If you have been in parenting world long, then you probably know exactly what those faces mean. Benjamin is about to fall asleep where he stands and Gracie is throwing a fit. Yep, I’d say it was a success!
Can you spot my pumpkins in this picture?
The crew (minus the picture taker, of course).
And then, there are the childrens. See their wonderful personalities coming out? (Gosh, I love them!)
What about you, have you gone – or are you going – to a pumpkin patch this year?
