Our First Time at the Pumpkin Patch
AT THE PUMPKIN PATCH
I knew that fall was everyone’s favorite season, but I didn’t fully understand how vast people’s love for autumn was until we visited the pumpkin patch this year.
Once October hit, I felt like everyone just turned their wardrobe around, got the cozy knits out, unpacked all the beautifully patterned scarves and socks, and welcomed the yummy crispiness in the air with open arms and pumpkin spice lattes in their hands. This month, fall hit, and it hit hard, and I am so for it!
Our little family visited Homestead Farm in Poolesville this past week, and though it’s not the best farm to visit for pumpkins, apples, corn stalks, and hay rides, it was still so magical to me! It’s like I discovered a secret garden. It’s funny and crazy how in the three years that I’ve lived here in the US, it was my first time to visit a pumpkin patch this year! I had no idea fall was this big agenda where people intentionally visited farms, picked out pumpkins, drank fresh apple cider, picked beautiful apples, and etc. Now that I’ve experienced it, I get the hype! And though we didn’t bring home pumpkins or apples, we still had fun. This could be a start of a new family tradition, so of course, we took lots of photos!
