My people. I love them so much. With a few exceptions we have made the pumpkin patch an annual tradition. For no particular reason other than we can, and we love to make memories together. Some years it’s been an elaborate event with lots of friends, hayrides, corn mazes, giant slides, hamburger shacks. This year, our calendar has been so packed with activities we could barely find the time. We managed to squeeze in a sweet and short visit to a small family farm not too far away. It was perfect. Just us, a field of pumpkins, some corn, and pumpkin launchers. Enjoy. Happy fall. Go drink something warm (except for a pumpkin spice latte, cause that’s just gross.)
This is one of our favorite pumpkin patches, and we’ve been to plenty. It is small enough to not be overwhelming and simple enough to navigate with young kids without fielding the “can we buy one of those?” questions over and over. Once in a while it’s fun to go to the places with all the bells and whistles, but honestly I don’t feel the need for a train ride, goat ramps, giant scary corn maze and all the fair food you can imagine. Just give me the pumpkins and no one gets hurt.
One small note: if you are into caring about such things, neon red/ orange is not the very best color to wear for photographs. Just sayin.
