I just love this time of year. The temperatures are great, you can wear long or short sleeves, the colors of the leaves are fabulous, and of course, I LOVE the pumpkin patches and apple orchards. It's become a requirement with our family that we go to the apple orchard and local pumpkin patch at least once. On Tuesday, the weather was great and we decided to go. There is a little pumpkin farm not too far from us, and it had been just a little farm where you could buy pumpkins, pay on the honor system in a cash box, and they had a turkey and rabbits for the kids to look at. I had heard they had expanded their farm, and boy did they! They have an actual store now, a little village for the kids complete with mini-houses, hay bale tower, and more animals. It was a ton of fun.
