Pumpkin Patch


I had this sitting as a draft for a bit too long which was not my original intention.

A few weeks ago, we enjoyed a wonderful trip to one of the many local pumpkin patches – Boyd’s Orchards. I’ve been there a couple of times since I’ve lived here but it was our first trip together. We had an amazing time exploring the corn maze, the hay ride, petting the farm animals and picking out our pumpkins! We chose two very nice looking pumpkins, which were not directly off the branch but close to it! We ended up bringing home two large pumpkins, some apple cider donuts, and some pumpkin butter. I still can’t get over how amazing the pumpkin butter was. We still have a jar left that we’re hanging on to.

I’m hoping we can make it a tradition to go to the pumpkin patch every year together. It was such a memorable afternoon.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! Especially to my better half who is Canadian. After class he helped me change the huge lights in the kitchen which was a huge task in itself especially after I dropped one of them taking out and it shattered on the floor, nearly taking out my poor Pumpkin who is never far away.

Later on, I made him an apple pie! It turned out lovely and we’re going to eat a slice in a few minutes.

Yesterday we went out to the pumpkin patch and had a lot of fun doing the corn maze and picking out our pumpkins.

I love this time of year and the time we’re getting to spend doing autumn type stuff when I have a day off. Next up – the trail of terror! Now off to enjoy some pie!
