We went to a pumpkin patch last Sunday. It was lots of fun. The weather was great too. We had never been to the Rock Creek Farm before so we decided to try it. It’s North of Denver but not too far. They have THOUSANDS of pumpkins and they are all huge! It’s pretty cool because you can buy any pumpkin size for $6 each. At Anderson Farms they charge by weight so it ends up being a lot more expensive. Actually we thought Anderson Farms was expensive anyways last time we went there. Rock Creek was so large that you had to drive you car from one patch to the next, then you would drive to the corn mazes. They had nice covered picnic areas for people who wanted to bring their lunch – we did. They had a large kids area set up and they didn’t charge for parking OR the kids area. They only charged for the pumpkins and the corn maze. The kids area had barn animals……Audrey loved them haha. they also had a few bouncy castles and a hay bail maze. They had some zorbing that you could do there but that was an activity that they charged for unfortunately. But there was plenty to do even without the zorbing. We spent 4 hours at the farm.
Every year I see the trees start to turn and I cling to what’s left of summer. I want to wear as little clothing possible until I have to pull out that big down jacket. Over the last week it was somewhat cold and cloudy everyday so I got a little taste of winter again. It was nice to bring out the boots and thigh high socks, BUT I can only stand to wear boots so long. I GET SO BORED with the boot look since I am a flip flop kind of girl. Every winter I get into my closet and feel sad that I have to wear boots again. My open toed wedges and True Religion jeans are calling my name! But lets be real, what a disaster that would be on icy walk ways and snow.
I think this year my plan of attack will be to wear boots with everything, shorts, skirts, leggings, and of course the skinny jean staple. I need to buy a pair of comfortable boots with a heel. That way I can get away with looking girly and also stay warm. Last year I just had Audrey so my focus was comfort and well, whatever would even fit me!
Audrey and I took a walk yesterday and we took some pictures of the leaves for you all to see.
This spot of water is the last bit that we have left over from all the rain. Northern Colorado got it really bad. I can’t believe how destructive the rain was for us. Last year the LACK of rain was bad and this year it seems like the opposite. Somethings always going on in this state. We are popular for too many reasons lol.
