pumpkin patching.

This weekend many parents followed the age-old tradition of taking their children to the pumpkin patch to pick out the perfect pumpkin, buy freshly popped kettle corn, sip hot cider, and take several pictures to make these memories last forever. My mom and dad were absolutely included in that group of parents as they took their 20/30-something daughters to a local farmer's market/pumpkin patch as we've done every year since I can remember. Every year my dad buys me a massive bag of kettle corn along with the best pumpkin in the whole bunch, and this year wasn't any different. Along with this there's always lots of posing for pictures holding the oddest shaped gourd we can find or holding the hand of the scarecrows that surround them. After the patch we usually walk somewhere for lunch and just laugh and talk about what's currently going on in our lives. I absolutely love this day each year, it's incredibly hard to top how much fun we have. Parentals - thank you for introducing us to this autumn tradition when we were young, and for keeping it a part of our lives ever since :)
