Pumpkin Patch

Our family makes a point of going to the pumpkin patch every year. Choosing a pumpkin from a pile at the store will never equal tromping through soggy fields of pumpkins in search of that perfect canvas for a festively ghoulish carving.

The pumpkin patch we have gone to for the past two years is more of a theme park than a generic pumpkin patch. There are so many things to do in addition to finding a pumpkin that you could easily spend an entire day there. They have slides, train rides, hay rides, a corn maze, tricycles for kids to race, tricycles for adults to race, farm animals to pet, rubber duck races, cutout stands for ridiculous photo ops, snacks and more. In the end you walk away with some fun memories and some very exhausted kids. Unless, that is, you’re a Johnson. In which case you also walk away with a lot less cash and a couple hundred pounds of  pumpkins because both Brandon and his brother have to find the most massive pumpkins they are able to strong arm from the field to the checkout stand. We filled the backs of two SUVs with the spoils of our pumpkin hunting with barely enough room left for Lyla’s stroller.

Luckily, it was an unseasonably gorgeous day. Oh summer, where did you go?

It’s never too early to teach your kids to haul their own pumpkin wagon.
