Finding the Fun in Fall

The best part of any season is getting to spend quality time with family. Fall is full of opportunities for fun.

Fall Family Memories at the Pumpkin Patch.

Our little family making fall memories.

Last week, we had to make some deliveries near one of our favorite local pumpkin patches - Jack Creek Farms. We took a few minutes to stop by and have some fun, and it was so enjoyable!

They thought of so many things to include to make the experience at their pumpkin patch fun for all ages. We missed their big family event of the season by a few hours, but even still, we had such a great time! There was a maze, a tire jungle gym, a wooden train, farm animals, pumpkins, and an adorable storefront. They also incorporate classic farm equipment into their decor. This adds to the already inviting and rustic atmosphere. We had so much fun and we could have spent even more time there than we did.

Since we live far away from town, we have pretty much become masters at making many stops on our trips to town. We used to try to cram lots of business into our trips and rush home to try to cram even more business into the end of the day. But we quickly realized that was exhausting. And also, we were working so hard for little reward. What would be the point of working from home but not being able to enjoy time together, as a family?

It's not to say that we don't work hard or fit a lot of business into our days, but we have learned that it's okay to stop and "smell the roses" every once in awhile. And of course, our sweet kiddo loves those moments as well. Our visit to the pumpkin patch was a fun surprise that left us with special family memories of this fall season.

As luck would have it, we created these metal pieces in different pumpkin faces for this occasion! Pumpkin carving can be fun and exciting, but it is definitely geared toward older kiddos. These pumpkin face pieces are *perfect* for keeping the experience fun and mess-free for kids of all ages. Also,  they help keep your pumpkins from rotting too fast because there aren't gaping holes. It's a win-win!
