This past weekend my family went to our local pumpkin Patch for a little fun. The Coconut Grove annual Pumpkin Patch festival always has a bunch of activities and fun for kids along with the ability to purchase and decorate your pumpkin, scarecrow decorating, carnival rides, and food. They also have a corn maze and an area where you can take your fall pictures of the family and kids.
We picked out our pumpkin With Sebastian’s help. We actually ended up coming home with a “mama” pumpkin and a “baby” pumpkin.
Then Sebastian rode some carnival rides.
I took a few selfies with Madison since it was her first pumpkin patch.
And then we took our pumpkin home to carve. The next day, we went to Target to pick up our pumpkin carving kit. Sebastian picked out a Paw Patrol kit and decided he wanted Marshall carved on the pumpkin.
Of course since he’s 3, this was my job to do, not that he didn’t try to do it himself. I did allow him to use the scooper and scoop the insides out. He did it once, felt the squishy insides and declared himself done.
I took pictures of the process and not the end product and being that it’s still very hot here in South Florida, my pumpkin doesn’t look as good as it did, so I’ll spare you the picture of my now very scary looking pumpkin. I’ll tell you, I tried. It was by no means perfect, but you could tell it was Marshall.
We will be having some more fun this weekend at Zoo Miami’s Zoo Boo where we will take the kids dressed up in their costumes to get some candy and have some fun. We like to do this every year because it is a ton of fun for the kids and we also get to spend some time seeing the animals and visiting friends since a lot of our friend partake in this event as well.
These are some of the things we like to do every year as a family and is becoming a tradition with us as a way of breaking in the holiday season. This is my favorite time of the year and I love to be able to share it with the babies.
