Off to the pumpkin patch we went...

Monday afternoon, we found that we had a free afternoon. The kids were home from school. My tutoring session got cancelled. Ben's OT appointment got cancelled. So, we decided to head out to the orchard where we picked apples, to let the kids pick pumpkins for Halloween. Rebecca and Benjamin had NEVER been to a pumpkin patch and Jacob had only been once with his preschool. In fact, Bill and I had never been to a pumpkin patch in the 12+ years that we have been together. 

The weather was perfect (mid 80s and sunny!). We met up with my mom and my sister, who was home from college so they could have some fun as well. We were a little late in the season to pick them, so there weren't many left, but the kids found 3 perfect ones for them.  


At the orchard, I also picked up some tomatoes and some hot salsa for Bill. Overall, it was a wonderful afternoon of family fun and making memories! We will definitely be adding this to our to-do list for fall in the years to come (and hopefully we will be able to go earlier towards the start of October next year!).

Do you pick pumpkins from a patch? 
When was the last time you visited a pumpkin patch? 


  1. I pick pumpkins from a box at Aldi! I have never been to a pumpkin patch in my life. Maybe one day I can take the granddaughter to one.

    1. That is normally what we do too! LOL However it was a neat experience for the kids.

  2. Haven't been to the pumpkin patch for a number of years now but I always enjoyed looking for the perfect one. You had a beautiful day for it!

    1. We did! Temps were in the low 80s and bright, beautiful sunshine. It was great!
