We can feel the cool, crisp air in the evening now.  The leaves are beginning to change color and Halloween is around the corner.  This time of year is one of the absolute favorites for my family.  We are obsessed with the beauty of fall, and one of our annual traditions that we treasure is grabbing hot chocolate and heading to our local pumpkin patch to pick out our pumpkins to be carved, try to make it through the corn maze, take a hay ride and exhaust the kids with a good bounce in the jumpy house!  Let's not forget some gourmet bites to finish it off.

I hope you and your family will enjoy the festivities of fall as much as we do.  Here is a guide to the local pumpkin patches to help you get in the spirit now that October has arrived!  My list begins with the biggest experience including farm animals, hay rides, pony rides, a mechanical bull and barbecue!  The last few on the list are just basic for those who want a small and simple pumpkin patch experience.
