Ah, fall is in the air. What better way to welcome the arrival of the cooler weather than enjoying one of fall’s fun filled family festivities – going to the pumpkin patch!
This past weekend we took our little one for the first time to the local pumpkin patch. The thrill and excitement has been building in our house all week long. Much to our surprise; we were amazed at the turnout. The cars, vans and suvs lined the road both northbound and southbound for miles!! It’s so funny, because when the kids are this young it’s all about us the parents having a good time. We like to think that they’re truly enjoying themselves as much as we do.
We joined in with the hundreds of people all lined up for our pictures with the scarecrow, pumpkins and hay bale. It was so much fun to walk in the pumpkin patch and select our “perfect pumpkin.” We saw all sorts of pumpkins!
Now, I’m not a pumpkin patch connoisseur, but this was a pretty amazing place with something for everyone in the family from young to old. They had bounce houses, corn maze, haunted house, tracker rides, petting zoo, DJ, car wash, face painting, flea market vendors, and food vendors with two of my favorite’s homemade ice cream and apple cider. The ambiance of a true fall festival and pumpkin patch all in one!
This truly got my family and friends in the mood for fall. Its times like this when it’s nice to sit back from my fast paced life and reflect on how the little things in life mean the most. This past weekend, for me was spending quality time with those I love the most and truly making memories that will last a life time.
