Autumn is by far my favourite time of year. I love the changing colours of the leaves, anything to do with Halloween, being able to wear chunky scarves and wooly jumpers and lighting all my Autumn scented candles in the evenings. I am one of these who is a little obsessive about Halloween in fact- I think it's probably something to do with my Canadian upbringing as it's such a huge thing over there. I love that LO is really getting interested in the different seasons and festivals throughout the year now too. He seems really interested in Autumn and the nicer side of Halloween and so this year we couldn't wait to take him on our yearly trip to the pumpkin patch.
Last year of course I was pregnant with Little L, and it felt a little surreal going again this year as he just seemed so big and grown up, sitting on pumpkins and crawling about, considering only a year ago he wasn't even born. And that's one of the things I love about blogging and documenting our adventures. I love that I can look back and see what we got up to a year or two or three years ago, and reminisce about these sorts of things.
LO is obsessed with tractors and loved that he got to have a free ride on these.
last year you'll notice he's still wearing the exact same green bobble hat and orange wellies. We bought them for him the same day we went pumpkin picking last year. I think he probably needs some new wellies by now...
I love that we are starting our own little family traditions and this is one which I'm sure we will continue even when we move to Lincolnshire and I'm sure I'll make sure I document next year's too as I just love to look back on what we got up to- whether it's an ordinary moment at home or an exciting day out together to the pumpkin patch.
