Our plans had been to go to the pumpkin patch last Friday with the Brobergs, but last minute we couldn't go. As soon as we made the choice I was annoyed with it. So theeeeeen, we decided we would go to old trusty Cal Poly the next day. Weeeeell, Saturday came and at about 3:30 we were getting ready to go, and as I looked on the website I saw it closed at 5pm. Sooooooooo, after all was said and done we went to the Live Oak Pumpkin Patch (about 20 minutes away) just the 3 1/2 of us. :)
We printed some coupons, got ready and were on our way. Aaaaaaaand, it was wonderful. Thank goodness, because lemme tell ya, it was quite an ordeal for no real particular reason. It just was.
But, we got in for free. Got to pet and feed the animals for free. Took the free "hay" ride (if you can call it that.... there was no hay). But, didn't pick any pumpkins. They were ridiculously expensive. We'll go to good ole' WalMart for that, thank you very much!!! However, just being out in the cool crisp air, and with the harvesty environment all around us, made it so much fun!
I love my family. I love spending good quality time with them. I love all things holiday. I love my man. I love my baby. I love weekends together. I am thankful for the life I have. And am thankful for time together to enjoy the simple things that make us happy. We may not have much, but we have each other. And, for now, that's enough.
