On Saturday, Jason and I went to the pumpkin farm. I couldn't help but savor every moment we had together when we were there. We walked around and went into the sweet shop, bought a 1/2 gallon of fresh apple cider, ate a funnel cake together, and talked about the future. It was so fun to see all the little kids there with their parents. To see their eyes light up when on the ponies, or feeding the goats, even when they were going on the rides. I loved seeing a couple of one year olds go by the huge pumpkins and say "ball....ball" and then tried to pick the over sized pumpkin up. It was a great time for us. We realize that this was our last year together at the pumpkin farm and now next year when we return it will be with a 7 month old baby. And for that baby it will begin a tradition just like the one I had. Going to the pumpkin farm with the family, eating, going on rides, petting the animals, and picking out the best pumpkin ever! I am so thankful for a family that has traditions....fun traditions that I can now instill in my soon to be family...and I can't wait for traditions that Jason and I create that our just ours!
