Fall Fun: A Day at the Pumpkin Patch

Fall Fun

Fall and specifically the month of Halloween are certainly improved by pumpkins. I am not a pumpkin fanatic, but I do enjoy the seasonal decor and pumpkin food. I also finally got to check off one more item from my fall bucket list

There have been pumpkins on sale at all of my local grocery stores for awhile, but what fun is that when I am lucky enough to live by multiple farms that have pumpkin patches every year. This year I went to Tigges Farm, which has a family friendly atmosphere and an abundance of pumpkins.

If you are in the Greeley area I highly recommend taking a trip here! They do have more produce than just pumpkins, but naturally that is there biggest draw at this time of year.

They had a variety of different pumpkins; pie pumpkins, carving pumpkins, decorative pumpkins that looked to small to be real, but somehow were.

This year I only got one pumpkin to carve, one pie pumpkin, and the rest were two small to carve, so we painted them with watercolor based paints instead. The watercolor is nontoxic, and as long as you allowed the paint to dry before painting a second coat it covered the pumpkins wonderfully.

There was walking involved, however, they did have free hay rides to from their shop down to the patch. It was a warm day and there were a lot of people out visiting the farm. Their atmosphere was fun, family friendly, and vintage. If you are in the need for some seasonal family pictures this would be a great place to go.

Fall Bucket List

With fall starting I have been itching to jump into my sweaters and sit by a roaring fire with a hot cup of cocoa and reading a good book. Here in Colorado it is still routinely hitting the 80s and 90s but I am prepared for when the temperatures finally drop. Feel free to join me on my magical fall journey!

Spring Bucket List

Right now we are only three days away from the first day of spring, and I am rather excited. Living in Colorado I see more than my fair share of the snow and spend most of the winter bundled in as many layers as I can manage.

But with March 20th quickly approaching I can finally get into a spring state of mind. Yet, I didn’t want 2018 to roll out exactly like last year when I let spring completely pass me by, so I have created a Spring Bucket List and I invite you to join me.

*Side note: If you would like to feed ducks please do not feed them bread; instead you can get duck pellets from a pet store, or any variety of birdseed. You can also feed them leafy greens(in small pieces) or oats.
