Autumn Afternoons & Pumpkin Patches

IMG_5852Last week, my husband, my mom, and I took advantage of a lovely autumn afternoon and visited a local pumpkin patch to scope out some perfect jack-o-lantern candidates.

We found a quaint little rustic farm where they had 3 acres of pumpkins to choose from!

We each picked out a pumpkin and then had a lovely chat with the farmers, who told us that it only takes a few months to grow their pumpkins.

And then it was carving time! Matt and I both picked Disney stencils, big surprise ;)

Have you carved any pumpkins yet this season? Show me a pic in the comments!

  2. I’ve never really gotten into pumpkin carving – too messy for me I guess, but I loved reading this post and seeing the pumpkins you carved! And because it’s Disney that’s an added bonus. :D The pumpkin patch looks so cute too! Where I live I only see pop-up pumpkin stands in vacant lots, so it’s not really that aesthetically pleasing. :)

  3. My daughters would like you to adopt them so you can carve them Rapunzel pumpkins every year. Their mommy is boring and always does a simple cross. They’re especially keen on this since they’re going as Elsa and Rapunzel for trick-or-treating tomorrow night.

    Also, I tagged you here. Play if you like :-)
