T’is the SEASON OF ALL THINGS PUMPKIN! When Fall rolls around, Matt and I like to make a Fall Check List of all the things we want do before the season is over. Well I do! Most people start Fall in October, but we love to start in September and celebrate through October. This allows us two full months of ALL THINGS PUMPKIN and we want to enjoy this season as much as we can. Now a days, I feel like we are celebrating one holiday and shopping for three holidays ahead! SLOW DOWN!! I CAN’T KEEP UP!!!
A few items off our Family Fall Check List
- eat a caramel apple and drink apple cider
- visit the pumpkin patch
- go apple picking
- look for halloween lights
- make pumpkin bread and pumpkin cupcakes
- visit every coffee shop in my city and get a pumpkin spice coffee – ( whatever, call me basic – lol )
- decorate for fall
- get harpers costume
- movie night party with the nightmare before christmas
- find a pile of leaves in OC!
Every year we visit the Irvine Park Railroad Pumpkin Patch. But due to the fires, it was closed. So I did what I do best, I posted on Instagram and asked where the best Pumpkin Patch in the OC was, and Tanaka Farms won by a landslide! This past weekend we loaded up the car and took Harper to pick out her first pumpkin! Last year she didn’t get to pick because she was only 2 months old! However, we did put her in a pumpkin…. that didn’t turn out so well! #pinterestfail!
Where is your favorite Pumpkin Patch to visit? I would love to know so that I can check it out next year!
