Our annual trip to the pumpkin patch…

life as our little family

Another weekend, another beautiful Autumn day. This year Autumn really has won my heart, I think I say this every year but what’s not to love. Bright blue skies and despite the drop in temperatures the sunshine keeps you from popping on your winter coat. I may change my mind in a few weeks when all the beautiful colours have disappeared, the skies are grey and we’re trapped in doors watching the rain but for now we are making the most of the weather. It rained all morning here and so when the sun made an appearance Lil G was very quick to pop on his wellies so that we could make a dash to our local pumpkin patch. This was our third year picking out our own pumpkin and I am always amazed by how much fun he has. I forget just how much until the day arrives.

life as our little family

We normally drive out quite far to find a PYO pumpkin patch whereas this year the farm we visit each year to pick our strawberries has made its first pumpkin patch. And so off to Woore Fruit Farm we went. It’s a really lovely farm, family run and you can tell that they put their heart and soul into developing the site each year. If you live nearby then it is definitely one to visit, perfect for half term and just in time for Halloween.

For as long as Lil G lets me I think we may have a little photo shoot here each year we visit. I actually took a little time to stand back and watch him this year as he was much more able to pick out his own pumpkins, this boy really does make my heart swell. He was determined to pick out his own and took great pride in choosing not one but five this year, all different sizes and colours filled our wheelbarrow. We have a beautiful collection and so I guess all we need to do now is carve them into some wonderful designs!  Ideas on a postcard please.

There are some days out which just disappear into the camera roll and then there are trips like this. We were only out for a short while but I know that we have made some really wonderful memories and even now I can still hear his little giggles as he attempted to push the wheelbarrow up the hill, trying his best but falling over with laughter. The perfect reason to make it a little family tradition. Here are a few more photos from our rather lovely trip out to a pumpkin patch…

    Love these photos, I don’t think I’ll ever get fed up of pumpkin patch photos. We are going this weekend to do ours and the boys are so exited. Little G looks like he’s really got into this year and how cool is his pumpkin headwear?! xx

    Loving the pumpkin headband. Good fun. We picked pumpkins this weekend too – on a beautifully warm morning. We had to travel some way, because our local pick your owns don’t do them. Your one looked empty – the one we went to was insanely busy.

      Its so blooming cute, its mine from a little while ago. Oh did you, how lovely, I’ll look out for your photos. It wasn’t busy at all, we were lucky. I think partly because it is new but secondly because it had just stopped raining x

    I love all your photos, you look like you are having a fab time. We grew our own pumpkins this year, but I would still love to visit a pumpkin patch, everyone seems to be visiting them this year and I feel a bit left out! I love the pumpkin headband too!

    Pumpkins as far as the eye can see. Brilliant. They did well for their first year. What a lovely family tradition. Your photos are beautiful. I love orange and blue together. #CountryKids

      Aww no that’s rubbish isn’t it. We had a super time and made all the better that we didn’t have to travel as far as before. x

    Such fabulous photographs this week. I love those pumpkin ears! I hate to admit it but I’m a bit anti-Halloween – maybe I’ll want to get more involved when the boys are old enough to join in! #LivingArrows

      I was the same until last year when G wanted to go trick or treating. It really was a lovely night

    I wish there was a pumpkin patch near me that I could take the kids to, unfortunately I’ve not found any in Cornwall. It’s great to see you having so much fun hunting for the perfect pumpkin to take home, I bet Lil G is excited to get experimenting with them, are you going to make soup? They had a fantastic harvest for their first year, I hope they grow pumpkins each year so you can go back again!

    Thanks for linking up with me on #CountryKids.

    Looks like there has been fantastic weather recently from all the blue sky photos I’m seeing this week, perfect pumpkin picking weather! #CountryKids

    Stunning photos. I adore the pumpkin headband!

    We haven’t been to a pumpkin patch before but we’d love to. I’m not sure if we’re too late though?

      Its such a cute headband, one he had when he was a baby but fits him now! You still have time, enjoy it!

  14. 25th October 2016 / 10:13 pm

    Yes, we went to our local pumpkin patch on Sunday (look out for pictures in my next #MyCapturedMoment post). It’s funny how these little traditions become such a big part of our annual events, isn’t it? I love Little G’s pumpkin headband, he looks so cute! You had such a beautiful day for pumpkin picking and it looks like you did well ; )

    Thank you so much for linking up to #MyCapturedMoment.
