I keep seeing all of these wonderful blog posts with photos of kids at pumpkin patches. Kid’s are bundled up in cute jackets and hats, sipping cider, snapping pumpkins off their vines in the middle of a field …
Yeahhh … that’s not how pumpkin patches work in Texas.
To start with, it’s 80-something degrees here. So cute Fall clothes are OUT. We’re chugging water and munching on kettle corn popcorn. Oh, and our pumpkins are brought in by a big truck and placed strategically around a field in an aesthetically pleasing way.
But it’s still really fun!
We don’t have red and orange and yellow trees … or cool, crisp weather, or hot chocolate or apple cider … but we sure do have a lot of sunshine
… and while the Mouse was running around like a madman, the Froggy was in awe of his first pumpkin experience, and a little upset by the bright sun, lol.
We did try out the corn maze this year … and found ti quite a bit more challenging than we had anticipated. The Mouse got quite concerned when we kept hitting dead ends, lol.
The Froggy, however, decided to take a nap.
It was such a nice family evening … even though we didn’t have ‘perfect’ Fall weather or leaves, we still had a perfect evening together with our boys.
If you don’t have cooler weather where you live right now … how do you get into the Fall spirit?
