Pumpkins. THE fall foliage. Tomorrow evening we’ll be meeting some friends at the local pumpkin patch. I’m so excited to experience the pumpkin patch anew through the eyes of my almost 3 year old. Even though he’s been each year of his life, he of course doesn’t remember it. So I’m excited to see his excitement over all the pumpkins before him. And I can’t wait to carve some pumpkins with him this year. It’s getting to be that time of year that is full of family tradition. I love it. And I love that we’ll be able to build traditions and memories with and for our children. I grew up in a home with a million holiday traditions, so I get kind of romantic over them. Also, I can’t wait to bring some pumpkins home for our front steps and home decor! Yay! I think going to the pumpkin patch is one of my favorite things to do all year! This year will be a little different, as they had to change the location of the patch this year. Normally it’s down near the river in an area full of beautiful mature trees. Because of the major flooding we had this year, they had to move it to a more open to the sky location. Nonetheless, I’m sure it’ll be lovely still, and I’m still excited to go!
Do you have a pumpkin patch in your hometown? Do you go? Tell me what you do for your fall traditions?
