Around these here parts, there’s not a lot of choices when it comes to picking out a special pumpkin, or experiencing what we’d come to love back in my hometown as an annual tradition, visiting the pumpkin field. Here, you have ONE choice – and it’s a drive!
In the last years we haven’t been (our first experience was kinda, egh), the farmers have not only decided to grow more pumpkins, but they made a corn maze, a hay pyramid, brought in livestock, a couple of corn cannons, a tractor ride, and more. Our kids did not want to leave.
There were even freshly made (like as you watch) mini pumpkin spice donuts (eek!) – well worth the long drive!
I started to feel the fall warm fuzzy’s here. It’s been awhile, but now I can say my kids have had a true pumpkin field experience near our little side of the world…and gotten lost in a corn maze. Perfect fall traditions, kept! 🙂
Don’t our kids look great at the farm? In their soccer uniforms? 🙂
For the grandparents; Half-Pint’s arm IS in a splint here, but she has made a complete recovery and will not need further treatment. So thankful!
