Now that our 2012 wedding season has come to a close, I have the pleasure of spending my weekends with my daughter, Payton. We recently started taking a Parent-Tot gymnastics class. After our Saturday morning class, we picked up our favorite smoothies and stopped by to see my husband, hard at work.
After a quick nap, my cousin, friend and I decided to take the kids to the pumpkin patch. After doing some research, I discovered Pumpkinville at Leesburg Animal Park. After a gorgeous thirty minute drive down route 15, we arrived at our destination.
We spent about two hours playing with the farm animals, drinking cider, enjoying the area’s best apples and watching the kids have a ball on the various activities Pumpkiville had to offer.
The highlight of my day was returning home to hear Payton tell her dad that she had so much fun at the pumpkin patch with her cousins. I am excited to start new family traditions and take advantage of all of the wonderful and inexpensive activities the DC area has to offer. After a long day, I spent the evening enjoying a glass of cider and baking mini pies with the apples that we picked at the park. (Recipe coming soon!)
Feeling grateful for family and sweet memories. Happy Fall!
