Nelson Farm

What’s a fall season and Halloween holiday without a trip to a pumpkin patch? ** We got out of our sweatpants (because even sans blog, a pumpkin patch visit is a family photo gold mine) this past Sunday and headed to a nearby farm that offered pumpkins and then some. As you know from past posts, it takes a lot for the Olsons to get organized and go on a family outing. So when I was looking into options, I wanted to find something that hit on lots of cylinders. Although a roadside stand would actually suffice (all the kids really wanted was to pick out a pumpkin), I feel the need to try and tie in farm animals, fun and games, food and drink, a corn maze, you name it. There are a ton of options, to be sure, but I feel like we hit the jackpot with Nelson Farm.

Perhaps slip-on moccasins (which come untied every five minutes) weren’t the best option for a farm visit, but they sure are cute.






In the intro I said all that Ella wanted was a pumpkin. Her priorities shifted when she saw the mini donuts.



Reality Check. **The answer to my initial question? It can still be a wonderful fall season and Halloween holiday. This is our second trip to a pumpkin patch. Not this year. Ever. And we’ve all survived. So if you are busy, or it’s cold or the kids are napping or if you just aren’t in the mood, don’t sweat it – stay in your sweats. Grab your kids a pumpkin at the grocery store. That works too.
