A trip to the pumpkin patch

Every year I look forward to taking my kids pictures in the pumpkin patch. It has become an unexpected tradition of mine that we make a whole day of. Some people are really into Santa and some people are really into pumpkin patches. I'm into both. ;) I imagine one day I'll have a wall full of fall colored pumpkin patch pictures with my kids and grandkids.
An overcast day would have done wonders for these photos but the sun was nice in the moment. Honestly, the day did not go as well as I had hoped and I seriously was planning a return trip to get the pictures that I really wanted. But, alas, with Halloween just around the corner the probability of us going back up to the farm is not likely.

As a child I remember going to the pumpkin patch just once. I was a grocery store pumpkin kid so when Matt and I started dating and he took me to an actual pumpkin patch in the middle of the farm fields in Snohomish, I just knew that was the only real way to get a pumpkin. The experience you get from visiting the actual farm where your pumpkin grows is so much more exciting. Obviously. I hope it's a tradition my kids think back on fondly and take on as one of their own when they grow older.
