In October we did what all young families do in the fall… we visited a pumpkin patch. And by pumpkin patch, what I really mean is a reindeer farm with a handful of pumpkins scattered around a field. An Alaskan style pumpkin patch! It turns out we decided to go on the busiest day of the month, so by the time we arrived there were literally 10 pumpkins left in the field. But that was ok because we were really there for the reindeer anyway.
We visited this same pumpkin patch last year and had a blast.
I was looking forward to heading back with Lillian, knowing she was at an age where she could enjoy it more. She had a fun time picking out a pumpkin, checking out the reindeer and elk, and running around the farm. She had a bit of a meltdown in the hay maze (after getting trampled by big kids!!), but it was nothing her dad and a few Crunchies couldn’t fix.
Even though this took place way back in October, I still wanted to post about it and share the pictures. They kinda have a Christmasy vibe with the reindeer, right?!?!
I hope everyone is enjoying these last couple days of hustle and bustle before Christmas. Things are finally slowing down around here. We got all of our Christmas cards mailed, a few goodies baked, a tree chopped down and decorated, and last night we finally visited Santa. It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
