To honor all the fabulous aspects of autumn, we decided to act in fall fashion and check out the pumpkin patch — my first expedition not in IL so I actually had to ask where people around here go.
Turns out they go to Stony Creek Farms… and so our adventure begins.
First we hit the big, bouncy thing — we were a little worried about her size and the other people’s heathen mongrels running around.
Mia was not — clearly.
(kid in the ponytail and pink patched sweater/leggings — little hipster, I know)
Then we raced some ducks.
I told her we could get cotton candy if we took a nice picture —
— it worked!
We also found the perfect pumpkin… right… around… this… tree.
On to the pony express.
I swear she actually wanted to ride this pony, I promise I didn’t force it — I mean even though we did spend $5 extra. Totally voluntary.
And to conclude…
We’re just a couple of peas in a pod basically.
… or pumpkins in a patch…
seems more fitting for this post.
