One of my favorite Fall activities is the classic pumpkin patches. A couple weekends ago my friends and I decided to make the trip and make a morning of going through a corn maze and pick pumpkins.
When we arrived we instantly were taken back by all the fun activities. A large hay slide, zip line, kid train rides, duck races, play ground, and a hay jump pit! That probably are designed for kids under the age of 7. Yet, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to be like kids for a couple of hours.
We loaded up our car on the last beautiful Fall day. In the low 60’s with a slight wind- what more could you ask for? At this corn maze every year they make a new design. This year it was Frankenstein! I was so proud- we conquered it in less than 20 minutes! What!?
I have so many amazing memories as a kid- once October comes along go to a Pumpkin Patch and picking up a pumpkin, going through mazes, and picking apples! As well as my mom would allow my brother and I to pick up a sweet treat! I remember our favorite were honey sticks!
After we went down the slide and rode across the zip line we decided to start going through the pumpkin patch. It’s amazing how much fun it is to go through patch after patch trying to find just the most PERFECT pumpkin! I always think it brings ownership over something when you go out and pick it out. I mean grabbing one at your local supermarket will work but I don’t think it is as much fun as the experience of picking one up at the pumpkin patch is.
Whether you pack up your car and head to the pumpkin patch or head to your local supermarket. Pick up your pumpkins and let’s get the festivities going!
