Fall festivities

Pumpkin Patch

A couple of weekends ago we made our annual journey to Santaquin to visit the Red Barn and pick out our pumpkins.  It was pretty much crazy town there but we made the best of it.  And Dan was nice to take the kids down the big slide 100 times since I wasn’t really up for it (it has a huge bump at the end and my 9 month prego self was not feeling up to that!).  We love this little tradition.  It is fun to ride the tractor and find the very best pumpkins.  Plus we love buying their fresh apple juice and getting apple cider donuts afterwards.  Yum!

 

Pumpkin Walk

This last Saturday we drove up to Logan with Dans’ sisters for the Pumpkin Walk.  We went last year and loved it!  And this year was even better.   Some of the scenes made from pumpkins are amazing.  We especially loved Wreck-It Ralph and Pixar.  Jack was in heaven with all the fallen leaves and could have played there all day.  The fall colors were amazing and the company is some of our favorite!  A yearly tradition has emerged and we love that!

 

Pumpkin Carving

Last night for FHE we carved our pumpkins.  The kids got into it this year and even got their hands messy which is nice!  They loved picking the picture they wanted which I then attempted to carve.  Dan always impresses and this year went for it with Wreck-It Ralph.  They turned out pretty great I think.

  1. That picture of Sophs in the “Where the Wild Things Are” cutout is my favorite. Your pumpkins turned out great, ours are still uncarved on our front step. I’m going to have to go to Santaquin next year, looks like a lot of fun.

  2. I think I love fall more and more each year! I love that Pixar pumpkin thing on the pumpkin walk. And Dan never ceases to impress me with his pumpkin carving.
