This past weekend, we had planned to take the kids to the pumpkin patch we had been going to the past three years. Growing up with a different cultural background, my parents did not take me to a pumpkin patch. Once I had my own children, we started our own traditions, and the pumpkin patch is definitely one of our annual outings. I had a blast the first time I went with Aleena and I am kind of bummed I missed out going as a kid. However, I look at the positive outcome that my first pumpkin patch outing was with my daughter, it was a first for the both of us. That makes it so much more special to me.
The car ride to the Pumpkin Patch was harsh! Zara has been teething for a few months now and no, I am NOT joking about that. The past week has been intense with the teething situation. Aleena was eight months when she got her first tooth and Zara is a week away from turning eight months. My wild guess is the girls are pretty close to being on the same teething schedule. I am NOT complaining though, since I am breastfeeding!
I was pretty dissapointed that the pumpkin patch we had been taking Aleena to the past three years was closed down, so we did a quick search and found one that was a bit further out, about forty minutes from our home. Luckily, the weather was just perfect, late afternoon. I was so glad that the outfit I had picked for the girls was weather appropriate. I have linked below their outfits, if you are interested. Also, I love Zara’s new moccasins by Freshly Picked.
The place we ended up going to was actually a farm, but they turned it into a pumpkin patch for the kids. Zara wasn’t too fond of her first hay ride. She wanted to jump out of our arms so I let the hubby take over and hold her. Aleena really enjoyed the ride around the big corn maze. We were able to see some ponies, pigs, goats, cows, and even bunnies!
Is it just me or am I the mom who can’t get her kids to look directly at the camera when photographing?! Look how cute they are, I absolutely love this picture! Outfit details linked below.
Aleena loved watching the ponies. It’s probably because she is such a big fan of My Little Pony. It brought me back to my childhood in Germany as we rode the little ponies in the city.

Isn’t being a kid just the best thing in the world?! I love watching Aleena use her imagination and just be a free spirit. It seriously is the most gratifying thing in the world.Not the most flattering picture of me and my hair was blowing all over the place. I don’t know what I was thinking about wearing white Converse to a farm, DON’T DO IT! Also, I wanted a picture with my girls!
