On a beautiful sunny, fall day we headed to Sauvies Island with some friends. It was a no-school day, and we like those, so we can hang out with our friends that go to school.
I know… we are growing out of so many games at the pumpkin patch…
And even on a week day we got to go on a hay ride to the patch where the pumpkins where growing. Sometimes farms are not fully “functioning” on week days, but this one it was! and what a treat it was.
I love hay rides. I remember the first time I went on one, when I was in high school, as an exchange student in Michigan. There are no pumpkin farms in Chile, so I enjoyed all the traditions there were from friends and my host family. Lots of memories. And of course, all these years of living here now, and the last 13 with these two goofy kids.
And because it is more fun to go with friends, we did.
Searching for the perfect pumpkin.
Taking it all in. The sights. The colors. The cooler weather. This is my time of the year I love the most.
Look at the colors!
And of course. A corn maze to complete our trip to the farm.
A day to remember, for sure.
