A day at the pumpkin patch...



Fall is definitely in the air here in Oak Harbor (when isn't it?). It's been cool and breezy with much shorter days, unlike the summer where it's light at 10pm. The local farms are burgeoning with corn and pumpkins and we knew a trip to the pumpkin patch would soon be on the horizon. So last week we bundled up the kids and headed out to Dugwalla Bay Farm. The kids had a great time on the hayride (pulled by a bright orange tractor), although it was quite bumpy. Mallory kept looking up at me with a puzzled expression :) Jillian and Griffin combed the fields quite thoroughly and each found a pumpkin to their liking, which have found a home on our front porch, making it look very cheery and autumnal. We just adore Washington for its never-ending supply of family-friendly, outdoorsy, memory-making possibilities.

Oh I love pumpkin patches. I don't think we have any here. Plus if we did it would be covered in snow!
