Sentimental Snapshots: “Scary Faces”

It’s October again, which means it’s time for a family tradition that many of you probably also share – a trip (or trips!) to the pumpkin patch!  The pumpkin patch is one of my favorite times of fall, so I tend to post about it every year.  First, there was C’s very first pumpkin patch visit in 2011, at Hodges Farm.  Then, there was last year’s trip to Hall Family Farm, which also happens to be the best pumpkin patch deal in Charlotte – it inspired me to write last year’s post about “Pumpkin Patching on a Shoestring Budget.”  (And since we got so many pumpkins, that trip also inspired this post – “5 Ways Your Pumpkin Can Last Past Halloween.”  So with all that being said already, this year it seemed appropriate to keep it simple.  So here’s a quick Sentimental Snapshot of just one of our times at Hall Family Farm this year.

I hope you’re not too scared.  My friend Celeste had just told our sons to make a “scary spider face” for the camera.  I’m not sure about you, but neither of their faces made me scared…but they did make me smile.  🙂  Does your family have a pumpkin patch tradition?  Do you hit the same farm every year, visit every one within driving distance, or choose a different destination each year?  Either way, I hope everyone’s October is filled with loads of pumpkins and scary (but not TOO scary) faces!  Happy fall everyone!
