I think that going to the pumpkin patch it probably one of my favorite things to do in the fall. I’m really not sure why, maybe it’s because you can some really fun pictures, who knows. It’s not like it’s something that we did every year as a kid. For the most part we just bought our pumpkins from the store and carved them. Which is actually what we ended up doing in the end this year too because most the pumpkin patch was pretty picked over.
Hay rides are another one of those things that I love to do in the fall and I’m not really sure why. It’s just fun, do I really need more explanation than that? There’s just something about the chilly fall air that makes everything about trips to the pumpkin patch, including the hay ride and corn maze so much fun.
The corn maze is something that can take a long time and get frustrating. Last year I did the whole thing with a piece of hay in my eye, I wouldn’t recommend doing it that way. This year we were actually able to go through the maze with Brandi and her family because the corn maze/pumpkin patch they normally work at didn’t open this year so they were able to join in all the fun with us. For whatever reason we decided to let J guide us through the maze, a decision that we were sure was going to end up costing us at least an hour lost in the corn. However, we were way wrong! He had us through that thing in about 20 minutes. When we saw the end I thought for sure we had just gone in a big circle and were back at the beginning, but we weren’t… guess the kid knew what he was doing after all
Last year Dennis and I carved pumpkins and they ended up sitting on our balcony without any lights until we finally just decided to through them away. We just don’t have the room by our front door to put them out. So this year we decided to just watch in the carving fun and save a pumpkin.
