It is a time honored fall tradition, taking ones child to the pumpkin patch to select their pumpkin. And so it was Sunday afternoon that we set out for the circus otherwise known as Lone Pine Farms.
Poor Margot was asleep when we got there and stayed asleep for the first twenty minutes only to wake up to complete chaos.
Children where running and squealing, there was a cow train ride, a goat sky walk, children's birthday parties and countless first time parents attempting to catch a photo op with their slightly confused infant or toddler and a DSLR.
But alas we survived, even had fun and came home with several "mama, daddy and baby pumpkins" as Margot says.
Despite her generally confused expression at the farm she emphatically announced "pumpkin patch fun" once we were in the car.
For me, I am glad to have some fall touches scattered throughout my house.
Our fun day ended with a tuckered out Margot and lots of Sunday evening snuggles.
