All Things Fall

'Tis the season to make a trek to the pumpkin patch! This was actually my very first time taking my children to a pumpkin patch EVER, can you believe that? Our homeschool group had a field trip to Lombardi Pumpkin Patch in Saugus. (how many times can I say 'pumpkin patch' in this post, right?)
I must say that I miss the seasons of other states I have lived in. Being in sunny California does have its benefits, but I loved looking forward to the crisp bite to the air that usually accompanies fall. The changing of seasons always reminds me of my mom, who loves anything cozy. I know she would have loved this trip with us (though she was at a pumpkin patch herself last week with my brothers!)


This service costs extra, but it's well worth it.


Anyway, here's to autumn, and the harvest, and all things "cozy". Even if I did come home with a sunburn.

Sunburn in Autumn LOL, here in Canada I can't imagine that happening. The pumpkin patch looks like a blast.

I'm going to ditto Jacquie's comment, and also say that I am totally jealous that you went to a pumpkin patch.

Now I'm wondering if we have one locally because your pictures were awesome.

Yeah. There's no crisp bite of autumnal air going on here. It was 77 degrees today. But your trip looked like fun!
