Celebrating Fall at a Pumpkin Patch

Actually, the title of this post should be “Celebrating Fall at a Pumpkin Patch when it’s almost 90 Degrees Outside” but that seems a bit long.

What the heck is up with October in Maryland? I’m ready for my crisp fall days, jeans with boots and hot pumpkin spice latte’s. It’s just not working for me when I’m still wearing shorts and a t-shirt (even if it is my super adorable t-shirt from Stitch Fix) and SWEATING on a hayride. We’ve already established how sweat and bangs don’t go together, right?!

Even if the weather didn’t listen to me, we had a wonderful time visiting a pumpkin patch over the weekend. Due to some sleepy kiddo schedules (mine just finished a nap when her daughter was pooped from a hectic day of ballet and the drive to the patch), I only had a few minutes to spend with my bestie’s family… but I totally got a picture that includes her arm, so that counts for something!

Anyways, here are some of my favorite pictures from our hot fall day:

Look it’s Annie’s arm! And a friendly goat who would like to snack on some goat food… or my kid. Whichever gets closer first.
I love how Jack is trying to stick his head through the fence for a closer look at the cows. Or maybe he’s just thinking he might like a burger later.
Jack is NOT IMPRESSED with the crowded hayride. And frankly, I don’t like people sweating on me, so I’m not impressed either…
My boys — picking out a winner.
Me and Jack, just chilling and fondling a random pumpkin.
The mandatory family picture. The random guy I asked to take this picture was not enthused. And honestly he kind of seemed like he hated the pumpkin patch. And people. Oh and Jack is really into waving at people now… especially when they’re not looking.
I turned around on our drive home and saw that this is how my husband secured the pumpkin.
Bonus pic: I’m smiling for the camera and Jack is sneaking a taste of my farm-made root beer soda (NO it’s not alcohol!)

How do you celebrate fall? Do you go to a pumpkin patch to pick out your own pumpkin or just grab one at the grocery store? Are you a fall festival minx like me? Another one is coming up this weekend and I can’t wait!
