going to the pumpkin patch is a must for us. we went with the in-laws on sunday and the pumpkins had been pretty picked over, but it was still so much fun. we went on a hayride and watched my nephew go through the hay maze. there's no corn maze this year because of the weather. ellie kept trying to pick up the big ones and pointed saying, "ball" ...adorable. the weather has warmed back up a bit and we're loving being outside enjoying the pretty trees. fall in the midwest is pretty gorgeous!
