happy fall y'all! have i not said that yet?! this past weekend was the first time we have really given fall our full attention, and i'm so glad we did. I've since been thinking of halloween costumes non stop, baked TWO rounds of pumpkin bread, eaten pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin... that, and broken out the christmas jams only a handful of times(embarrassed monkey emoji). this time of year is so wonderful, and as i've said before, having kiddos makes anything wonderful feel that much more special.
this year, we finally checked out the pumpkin patch at bartel farms! i've seen these cute little wooden pumpkin signs around our area for two years now, and was happy to finally see what they were all about! what a cute place; pumpkins, farm animals, and the sunflowers! gah-lee, they were so beautiful! abel loved running through all of the lanes, must be even more magical when they are taller than you! we got kettle corn + took a million photos, auntie tay + baby emeryn joined us, and we felt free of stress or worry or anything in-between. i love fall, i love my family, and i am forever thankful for this wonderful life.
^^^the love in this simple little photo :)
