Haunted Traditions

When I saw the spin this week was family traditions I thought that we don't have a lot of actual traditions for our little family. But then on Sunday my mom and I took Leo to the pumpkin patch and it hit me that, DUH! This was our family tradition. Since Leo has been 1 year old my mom and I have taken him to the pumpkin patch and had such an awesome time. We go to one that is about 45 minutes from where we live and each year the little farm gets bigger and bigger and always adds more attractions. And each year as Leo gets a little bit bigger he is able to do more and more. We were talking about how next year Leo would be in, GASP, kindergarten and so we would probably have to go on a weekend again but we both thought that we might be able to take him out of school or if they had an in-service day we could use that one to go and enjoy the time together. So our family tradition is nothing crazy but we sure like it! Here are some pictures from years past at the pumpkin patch...we don't have any from this year because I haven't gotten them from my mom yet.

Leo's favorite thing to do is play in their sandbox filled with corn and drive their dump trucks

Leo wished we could take this giant pumpkin home with us last year!

Leo and me in 2008

Each year we see how tall he is compared to the giant pumpkin! 2008
A little bigger in 2009

And in 2010!

And yes I am the obnoxious mom who makes her kid pose in the same spot every. single. year!

So cute! It reminds me of the time I brought Sprite to a pumpkin patch (right before she turned two) and she found a duck shaped gourd. We brought THAT home.
In fact..
