This past weekend we headed to one of our local pumpkin patches to explore. During October we love to go to as many farms and pumpkin patches as possible, it’s become a tradition for us. The girls both love it, often a boot gets lost in the mud, but we leave with memories.
As we were going through and searching for pumpkins, Evie started listing off rules for being at the pumpkin patch. Can you tell she’s in kindergarten now? It was cute to hear what she thought were important rules for being there. Keep reading to see what her rules were.
We loved seeing all the rows of sun flowers at Aldor Acres this year. It was extra special to us as we have photos of Tamara beside a few sunflowers there from our maternity photo session when we were expecting Addie. It was nice to have both the girls there and seeing them dancing in the sunflowers.

RULES FOR THE PUMPKIN PATCH… ACCORDING TO OUR KINDERGARTENER
- Wear your boots. You don’t want to step in the mud and get it all over, you can wash boots.
- No running. You have to be safe because you could trip over something and get hurt.
- No mud on the pumpkin. The pumpkin I pick has to be clean, there cannot be mud. I don’t want dirt.
- Round pumpkin. Find a round pumpkin, it’s the best shape.
- Wear a sweater. It can be cold, you need to be warm. Or go stand by the fire.
- Don’t hold it by the handle. The handle might break and then the pumpkin will hit your foot.
- Don’t get dirty. If you get too dirty mommy and daddy have to soak the clothes before laundry.
- Have fun. You have to have fun at the pumpkin patch.
- There has to be animals. Baby animals. Piglets. Kittens. Bunnies.
