|A new addition to our pumpkin patch.|
So the last few weeks have been busy - growing a baby, taking care of 2 toddlers, working up the courage to get out of my yoga pants during the week and surviving the day while feeling nauseous, and lots of outings on the weekends. In the midst of it all, we still managed to have fun and enjoy as much fall as we could.
Leaves! We have 2 beautiful mature red maples in our front yard, and they made for a great leaf pile for jumping in for my boys (and my husband). The leaves in Minnesota are absolutely gorgeous and with so many lakes for the colors to bounce off of, it's a beautiful sight.
The Apple Orchard! We went, we loved it, and we forgot to take pictures! We love the apple orchard. I grew up going to the apple orchard and loved it as a kid, and I'm excited to start sharing this with my kids.
Local gardens/market. We went to one by us and it was tons of fun. We got our pumpkins, they had a petting zoo, corn pit, jumping pillow, etc.

Carving pumpkins & Roasting Pumpkin seeds. The boys had fun digging out the seeds in each of their pumpkins. We basically get and carve pumpkins for roasting pumpkins. My favorite part, especially since we discovered trying different flavors with our seeds. Our favorite is making buffalo seeds! Yum!
Como Zoo Zoo Boo. The local free zoo (Como Zoo) offers a great safe and non-scary trick or treating event called Zoo Boo. Kids get to dress up, staff/volunteers dress up in costumes, the local fire department & police attend, and they give away a variety of treats (ranging from candy to organic cereal). Roman dressed as Buzz Light Year and Logan dressed as Yoda.
