I love autumn! I love everything that comes with it. The turn of the cooler weather, the changing of the leaves, apple picking, pumpkin patches, holidays that revolve all around family!
We had family come up for the weekend and made plans to go to the pumpkin patch right down the road from us. I looked forward to it all week! I was worried that maybe everyone else had already had the idea to go to the pumpkin patch and we would be showing up too late into the month and Nivens would be all picked out. Boy was I wrong though!
We pulled up and I kid you not, there must have been at least 200 cars there. Panic swept over me! I had never seen this little local farm with more than 10 cars. I was half tempted to just call up the family following us and tell them to head on back to our house. We didn’t though and ended up getting some great pumpkins, drinking some very yummy apple cider, checking out the little farm animals, and playing on some of the play gear they have.
When we first got there I was determined to go ahead and get a picture of Easton by his first pumpkins so I was steady snapping pictures while everyone else was leaving me to go out out to the fields. 😉
Once we got out there it didn’t take long at all for Keagan to make his claim….and then make another claim, and another, :). We had to end up putting a cap on the amount of pumpkins we would buy or else we would have gone home with a whole wheelbarrow full!
After picking the pumpkins we then headed over to play.
While waiting in line to check out I of course decide to steal Easton, jump ship, and take the opprotunity to maybe sneak in a few more quick pics. Boy am I glad I did. These few right here ended up being some of my favorites!
What fun that ended up being! We created some great memories and had good family company with us while doing so! Can’t wait to go back next year! Also can’t wait to carve out the pumpkins we brought home. 🙂
