The pumpkin patch

Earlier this week, I got a text from my favorite 12-year-old  asking, "Tante" (that's what he calls me), "Do you want to go to the pumpkin patch and the corn maze?"  I looked at my list of things to do for the day, wadded it up and replied, "Wow! Yes!"

I thought I was going to miss out on the pumpkin patch this year, so what a treat:)

We combed through acres of pumpkins and picked out a couple of good ones.

There were a lot to choose from and it was a gorgeous day.

Then we hit the corn maze.  It was my first time and according to my Fitbit we walked three miles.  And we never did get to the other side.

We ended up at a favorite coffee shop for hot chocolate and -- what else? -- a pumpkin latte.

What a perfect way to spend a fall day!

How awesome that no matter what you had planned for that day, you were willing to put it aside for him. That is so important and one of the ways we show love to others.

Visiting one of the local corn mazes is on my fall to-do list this year. I haven't been to one since about 2004. I thought it would make a fun date night idea for Gary and me.

I can't think of a better way to spend an Autumn day.
