Pumpkin Patch Trip 2016

Monday, October 24, 2016

It pretty much goes without saying that this holiday loving girl will make at least one trip to the pumpkin patch each fall season. Unfortunately Oregon weather hasn't been too cooperative lately, so we had to try to beat the crowds this Saturday when there was finally a dry day! It was so fun to see Harper get to actually enjoy the trip this year, instead of sleeping through the entire outing like she did last year.

We went to one of our favorite local patches, Baggensto's. They have lots of activities for the kids, including games, corn mazes, and some animals to visit with. You can take a free hay/tractor ride down to a field where they have lots of pumpkins for you to choose from. We let Harper walk around and check everything out to pick her favorite. 
We've been coming to this farm for several years, and it's so neat to look back at our visits when Dan and I first started dating to now being able to bring our daughter with us. We even got to bring my parents along for a fun morning outing. Thankfully we got there early and beat some of the crowds! 
Now that we've got our pumpkins, I'm hoping to carve a couple this week and maybe let Harper paint hers before Halloween next weekend. It's safe to say I'm absolutely in love with Harper's Halloween costume that my mom handmade and can't wait for her to get to show it off! I'm sure it will make at least one or several appearances around this blog and of course all social media accounts! 

What's your favorite fall or Halloween tradition? 


  1. What a fun family outing! We took out daughter apple and pumpkin picking earlier this fall. We had so much fun that it's now going to be a yearly fall tradition!

  2. I love fall festivals and pumpkin patches!! Yours looked like a lot of fun!

  3. It is a different fun and feeling to go outing with our family.. I bet you had a great time. It could be clearly understood from the snaps :)
