over the weekend, we rented a car and escaped the city in search of a pumpkin patch! a girlfriend of mine who lives in westchester recommended wilken’s farm, and it was amazing. after a beautiful drive staring at all the leaves that have started to change colors, we spent a good portion of our afternoon just hanging out with all the pumpkins (and trying our very hardest to talk samson out of bringing home the very biggest pumpkin in the field, which he had his heart set on for quite a few minutes there, haha! do you see it in the wagon there?!)
we’ve also teamed up with one of our favorites, plum organics, to giveaway a 3-month supply of baby food pouches and snacks to one lucky reader in the comments below! (details at the end of this post.) if you aren’t familiar with the brand, they are the ones who first introduced the spouted baby food pouch, and fill their plum pouches full of the best pureed fruits and veggies, always organic and always non-GMO. these new grow well pouches focus on getting in several of the important nutrients a growing baby needs with unique ingredient combos (blueberry, banana & sunbutter anyone?!) conrad is a big fan, so while i try to have him eat what we’re eating at the table, i always keep a plum pouch or two in my bag for when we’re on the go and we’re not exactly eating the healthiest thing (cause how can you say no to an apple cider donut at the pumpkin patch?!)
is it embarrassing to admit our entire family is pretty much hooked on these plum pouches though? because eleanor and samson often ask for them while we’re out as well, too. haha! pureed vegetables and fruit for everyone, in the form of baby food? why not? (it really is delicious!) seems that we’re not the only ones eating their pouches, because they have them for older children and even adults now too.
anyway, more photos and also giveaway details at the end of this post!
conrad’s first time amongst the pumpkins! since he’s started walking, he really had a good time trying to maneuver around the field and play on all the pumpkins!
welkin’s had a cute little bake shop where we snagged a few apple cider donuts and shared a candied caramel apple! BEST.
pumpkin jumping! we made a game of it.
conrad sneaking a little milk while we search for the perfect pumpkins!
note to self: if we ever end up with our own backyard someday, just fill the entire thing with spare tires! the kids had the best time rolling those around and also building different things with them!
we weren’t entirely sure how we felt about the scarecrow. haha! visiting santa in a few months should be interesting!
this was such a good day. bring on the pumpkin spiced everything this month, starting with the pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!
