It is officially the fall, and October is coming up in just a few days.

So it is time to start thinking about planning your visit to your local Pumpkin Patch with the kids. Same with Apple Picking if you do that during the fall as well.

We love going to the Pumpkin patch yearly as a family, getting excited about the fall and Halloween.

Visiting local farms is a fun family activity, and we usually get cute family photos when we visit.
