Pumpkin Patch 2016

This time of year lends itself to many of our family traditions. Tonight we visited The Pumpkin Patch. We began this tradition years ago when Madison was but almost one year old. I remember I wore a cute pumpkin sweatshirt on her with black leggings. As she grew, and as we added more little pumpkins to our own little patch, we continued our tradition. Steve brings a truck home from work, the kids wear Halloween clothes...well, until they don't...and we listen to our favorite Halloween CD on our way there and on the way home. We get pizza or Subway and eat together at a table simply decorated to celebrate this fun time of year. This year we were missing our Madison, but got her a pumpkin anyway. : )
