Pumpkin Patch 2013

Oct 28, 2013 | All, Family | 10 Comments

We had the pleasure of going to our local pumpkin patch this weekend as a family. It was everything I could have hoped for and more. It sounds corny but I think i’d been subconsciously waiting for this moment for a long time. No, not to go to the pumpkin patch. It’s that moment of building or starting a tradition. We’ve sort of just started our little family and we’re figuring things out day by day just like any other family. To have that special first moment with Riley and my husband over the weekend was such a joy and warmed my soul in such a way that could only be described as pure love. I’m very sentimental and I cherish moments and building traditions with my family. To see the look on Riley’s face when she saw everything was priceless.

Okay enough with the cheese ball, romance, sap… I’ll spare you, for now. 😉

Needless to say we had an amazing time at the patch. We enjoyed fresh slow cooked brisket sandwiches that were nothing short of perfect and caramel apples that I am still slowly devouring (with large glasses of water ;)). They had a small animal farm that could’ve used some more animals, but got the job done for Riley. We rode an adorable little train around the patch and went through hay mazes. Then, we topped off the afternoon with Riley picking out the cutest pumpkin that was just her size. We plan on decorating it later this week. 🙂

How was all of you weekends? What did you do? Comment below.

Here are a couple of photos from our day. Enjoy!

  1. What a lovely post. First of all, I for one can never get enough of the sentimental, “cheeseball romance sap.” It’s part of who you are and what makes you so special. Second of all, leave it to you guys to find a pumpkin patch that has brisket sandwiches. Never heard of that before! Best of all – the adorable photo of Riley by the haystacks in her plaid skirt, looking like such a big girl! Have fun decorating that pumpkin.

  2. Thanks for sharing your special family moments–I felt the same joy that you expressed when my kids experienced things for the first time. Bless you and your wonderful family!

  3. This post was so sweet! I am single now, but I find myself often daydreaming about my future husband and children and how I’d like to build traditions around the holidays! Is Riley dressing up in costume for Halloween? 🙂

  4. This is so nice. I cherish every moment with my 2 year old daughter as well. It is always great to get out the house with her and have fun activities planned. That pumpkin patch looks adorable. God bless

  5. Love the pictures of you all in the pumpkin patch. The beef briskit sandwiches look delicious and the picture of Riley taking the pumpkin from Stephen is adorable.
