A Chilly Day at the Pumpkin Patch

We have had a beautiful fall. It has been the perfect combination of warm days mixed with cool nights and mornings.  In.cred.ible!  We have only had one weekend where the weather decided to give us a taste of winter.  The cool streak started on the Friday our homeschool group had scheduled a trip to the pumpkin patch.  (Since that weekend, we have had beautiful warm sunny days.)

We were supposed to spend the morning at the pumpkin patch but it was far too chilly.  The temperature was in the 40's, the sky was overcast and it was very windy.  Thankfully, the kids really didn't seemed bothered by the cold. They were so excited to pick the pumpkins, go on the hayride, and see the new animals in the petting zoo (zebra and camel). 

Even though it was a short and very chilly trip, it was an adventure and one the kids will remember for a long time.

I love Mauryn's hat. I agree with your comment from my blog - these fall activities are some of my favorites!
