Pumpkin Patching

Can you believe we're going into the third week of October?  This time of year always seems to fly by to me and with the holidays (and my oldest son's 5th birthday) right around the corner, I have to remind myself to try to approach and accept life at a slower pace.  Our family has been battling stomach flus, colds and coughs since my return from Charleston but we did surprisingly manage to hit the pumpkin patch this weekend for a little fall fun.  I'm really a fan of it.  This was our third year visiting this small family farm which is just my speed and I highly recommend it to my local readers!

This year, Luke was obsessed with picking a perfect pumpkin with "no dents."  He surely gets that from his father because perfectionist

And for Jett...well, he was running around and throwing every little pumpkin he could manage to pick up with his sweet little hands.  Wow, what a difference a year makes!

Not gonna make it to the pumpkin patch this year with the kids?  No worries.  Really, it's just not worth it.  Read this, again.  It changed my life.  

But I'm still not giving up my pumpkin patch.  The pink pig, yes....the pumpkin patch, no.


  1. What a fun trip! Looks like it was enjoyed by all. I miss the pumpkin patch days:( Cherish these trips as before you know it, you'll be going by yourself, lol!!

    Happy Monday:)

  2. Your photos are so cute.....Your boys are adorable! Nothing is better then going to a pumpkin patch with the little ones.

  3. I love Luke in his little sunglasses! Looks like y'all had a great time. You never get too old for a trip to the pumpkin patch! Hoping to go with my hubs this week :)

  4. It looks like a wonderful day. You are right I can't believe how fast this year is going.

  5. I totally agree that this time of year FLIES. I hate it! Because when the holidays are gone, our little boy, our baby, is one! :(

  6. Thanks for posting that link! I definitely walk the line between scheduling fun outings for the boys and just going the easy/less stressful way. Growing up we never did any of the fun holiday traditions, so I at least want my boys to have some things to remember (but also at age appropriate times!)
