Snow, Mud, and Pumpkins
We had enough snow last week for the kids to go out and make a little snowman before it all melted. Despite the kids’ disappointment, snow that doesn’t stick around that long is definitely my favorite kind.
Fall was back by today, albeit a very muddy version, and we headed to a pumpkin patch with some of our playgroup friends to squeeze in some more fall activities before winter takes over for real.
The kids all loved the farm animals and the hay bale maze. I loved being tall enough to navigate our way out.
They also enjoyed the pumpkin patch which was really more of a mud field, although some of the moms weren’t too pleased. My kids have gotten way more dirty in our own backyard, so I wasn’t too bothered.
All I really wanted was a picture with both of my kids smiling, but the photo gods were not on my side today.
After we’d seen all the animals twice we confiscated the little people’s muddy shoes and restrained them in their car seats. Other than accumulating a huge pile of laundry, I think the trip was a fun success.

Thanks for sharing! You made my day.
Snow! I’m not ready for that. I’m glad you let your kids get dirty. It’s good for them! 🙂
