A Trip to the Pumpkin Patch {Family Traditions}

Yesterday was our annual trip to the pumpkin patch.  Even though I could only sit on the front porch and enjoy the porch swing, I wouldn't have missed it.  It's a family tradition for us to visit the pumpkin patch~wherever we may live.  

When we lived in Alabama we absolutely loved McGee Farm.  In Arkansas our favorite place was Wild Things Farm (which is technically in Oklahoma).  



Here in Kentucky we simply adore Christian Way Farm.  We just wouldn't miss a chance to go feed the animals (goats, pigs, donkeys, cows, horses, kittens, dogs, you-name-it), take a ride out to the corn maze and pumpkin patch, play on the hay castle, grind some feed corn ...there's just something about being out on the farm that is so peaceful and soothing to one's soul.  


Today was no different (except that I wasn't roaming the farm with the rest of the family--these photos are courtesy of my hubby).  It was a perfect fall day, with cool temps.  The first day we've really needed jackets this year.  But even if I wasn't able to walk all over the farm, it was just just as lovely hanging out by the country store chatting with friends, watching the kiddos have the time of their lives, and just soaking up God's natural beauty.


If you've never taken your family on a trip to the farm, I encourage you to find a farm near where you live and go have a day of fun!  It will be totally worth it!
