Last weekend, my family visited our favorite pumpkin patch. The weather was perfect for parading among the paths to find the perfect pumpkins. My kids get pretty serious about which pumpkins to bring home with us. It was such a joy to see there smiling face and learn their finally determining factors of their chosen gourds. Continue reading
We have had quite a full schedule lately! I’m going to admit that for me, Summer is a very lazy season plus I just don’t tolerate heat too well. When Autumn hits, I’m very energized and tend to get the family out to celebrate the season in its fullness over every other one.
On Saturday we visited our local pumpkin patch! This has been our third year visiting and we plan on continuing the tradition with our kids for many years to come! Our outing was cut a bit short, due to heavy winds and rain on the way. Wind gust were so strong that people were losing power and there were down trees around the area. My mom whom resides in North Carolina even told me the town where my husband works was mentioned in the news. So definitely noticeable blustery weather!
As a family we picked one pumpkin each to carve for Halloween! Four may seem like a lot of pumpkins but we really enjoy being able to support our local farms and I might even gotten a few more! Other than carving designs and faces into the pumpkins I’ll be roasting the seeds to snack on! My kids couldn’t get enough of the oil and salt oven roasted pumpkin seeds last year. There weren’t many leftover but whatever was we shared with the birds and squirrels in our yard.
Pumpkin farm photos are some of my favorite to look back upon. Melody was all smiles as usual but Owen was wearing down for the day. We had actually been to the Howl-O-Ween Zoo event that morning and stopped by the Pumpkin Patch on our way back home. He was totally ready for a nap. Thankfully no melt downs just pout faces when I asked him to pose for me. Good thing he’s so cute right?
