Pumpkin Patches and Menus

We went to three pumpkin patches this fall!  Three!  Yep, three!  Maybe I am a little crazy but we love them.  We love farms (hence my obsession with living on a farm), we love fall time, we love being outdoors, we love fresh vegetables, we love apple cider.  So, of course, we love pumpkin patches!  Plus, it is a great activity to do with my littles that can be free if you want it to be!
