Pumpkin Time

Fall is here or at least it has been here for a couple of weeks. I wish that outside felt more like it. It still feels like summer. Today as I am writing this it is humid and sticky outside. Gross!

I love the when it is fall. The leaves change color, it gets colder, bonfires, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and pumpkin spic lattes make this season great. Speaking of pumpkins, one of the best traditions we have as a family is to head over to the Pumpkin Patch at Riverbend Farms and pick out our pumpkins.

This year we went with my brother and his family and had a blast.

Climbing on fake animals…

and tractors.

Sliding down the slides

After playing it was time to get on the hayride.

The real work began as it was time to pick up out pumpkins…

I think my family had a great time and it gave mine and my brother’s family some time to enjoy each other.

Back To The Patch!

Last Monday BritWhitFun and I took K-Dub to the pumpkin patch near our house. We had a great time, however, we found a pumpkin patch near us that looked like it would be more fun. We were right about that. The place was called Riverbend Farms in Midland, NC. It was a huge place complete with a hay ride, slides, petting zoo, and general store. As you can see, K-Dun had a great time picking out her pumpkin. She even got to pet a goat. As for BritWhitFun and I, we really have enjoyed this season. There is nothing better than making sweet memories as a family. I love the fact that we are doing so many fun activities outside the house. It’s great to get out and do something different from the normal routine.

Nothing Beats A Fall Celebration!

This weekend was a fun filled one. We had a lot going on. We decided to kick our celebration of fall in high gear. This eventful weekend started with a trip to the Fall Festival at Lake Park. They had a bunch of free rides for the kids. BritWhitFun, K-Dub and I met my sister in law, niece and mom at the event. We watched as Charlee Bell (my niece) played mini golf, went down a huge sliding board, jumped around in a bounce house, and rode the carousel. We were not completely bored as BritWhitFun took K-Dub for a ride on the carousel and she loved it. I will post a video soon.

 Sunday was a very much laid back day as we spent the majority of it watching football and sleeping. There is nothing like watching football while lying on the couch. It just screams fall.

Yesterday I went shopping to decorate the front of my house for Halloween. I got some hay and went to target and got a huge light up pumpkin to put outside our house. I was still missing something.

That night after K-Dub’s nine month check up we we took her to the pumpkin patch to get some pumpkins to finish off the front if the house. She had a ball as we for her one that was just her size. After we left and put them out on the front porch, still feel like something is missing. I have decided to get a scarecrow to put out there but that story is for tomorrow.

So it looks like we are almost ready for Halloween. We are waiting for our costumes to come in and can’t wait for you see. It’s going to be a great Halloween. I just know it.
