Usually we go to Larriland Farm for our pumpkin and apple picking every fall. This year, however, our weekends sort of got away from us and we ended up deciding to try somewhere closer to home. It was lacking in tradition, but got the job done. The boys always enjoy picking their pumpkins from a field and probably would have been happy with any "patch," as long as we didn't make them buy their pumpkins at a store! They did wonder why the farm we went to did not have apple picking! To them, picking apples and pumpkins just go hand in hand. Hopefully we'll make it back to Larriland (and tradition) again next year.
