Part of enjoying October is going to a pumpkin patch. This year I heard of Avila Valley Barn and knew my family would enjoy a day there. What I particularly loved about this farm, is the opportunity to take a hay ride to the pumpkin field to pick your very own pumpkin!
Once we got to the farm, we enjoyed live music while we walked around the large farmer’s market which included: all the fruits and veggies you could think of, plus delicious tasting BBQ, fresh roasted corn, and fresh fruit pies. The whole ambiance made it the ideal place to take Harrison for his first pumpkin patch.
We also enjoyed feeding the livestock, checked out the pony rides and the nearby hay stack maze.
One week later…
We spend an afternoon taking the pumpkins we gathered from the patch and painted our silhouette’s on the pumpkins. With the remaining little pumpkins, I simply took a sharpie and wrote out our names (because our little man was about to wake up from his nap and at that point I had enough of DIY-ing I could handle for the day!)
Happy October everyone :)!
