Scarecrow Night at School

Yesterday was Scarecrow Night at my school. This is a really special event where families come together to create a unique scarecrow using whichever materials they’d like. This way, each scarecrow has it’s own look and serves to represent the family who made it. These unique and beautiful scarecrows line the outside of the school for the following several weeks. It’s so much fun to create a scarecrow and add it to the collection. It’s just as fun to marvel at everyone else’s special scarecrow. This is a wonderful annual event that I felt lucky to experience as a parent this year. Shaun, Dylan, Stella, and I worked together to create our scarecrow. What a wonderful way to celebrate fall. I’m so glad that I brought my camera along to capture this special event. I will treasure these memories forever.

A Day at the Farm: Pinto’s Pumpkin Patch

We spent the afternoon at Pinto’s Farm today. Pinto’s Farm is a lovely farm that’s five minutes from our house. They offer lots of wholesome things to do with your family like paddle boating (even babies can ride!), pony rides, tractor rides, a petting zoo and more. This month they are featuring a pumpkin patch. I thought it would just be a simple change like a few pumpkins here and there but, to my surprise, they had gone all out in the most beautiful way! They hung pumpkins and ghosts from the trees, they had several spots set up to take beautiful holiday pictures, they had trick-or-treating, face painting, and they even had a hay maze! It was a lot of fun!
