So funny I was just looking back to a couple of years ago when I posted this about going pumpkin picking with the kids and how miserable it was!
Once again last long weekend we made the long drive out to the south fork of Long Island and it was also another freezing day. We were with the same family from a few years ago and another and the kids were excited to be racing around in a different environment with their friends. When we all get together there’s always a lot of laughs and I’m always in heaven because my friends both of have babies and I have to live vicariously through them and soak up all that babyness!
It was chilly but the kids are older now so it wasn’t as stressful tracking them. Before we let them loose we sat everyone down and did a big kid pose and then some separate family poses. And then they were off to roam. This year I also chalked up 3 bucks for each of us for the hayride. Sad to say the kids weren’t even that thrilled which is a sure sign that they are getting older!
The best part was after we got our overpriced pumpkins and headed just across the street to a winery!!! Though it was very windy and I was still chilly (I am so a warm weather person, don’t forget!) I had so much fun sipping on some wine to taste with my friends. When we decided on some bottles we went outside and drank while the kids ran through the rows of the vineyard. It was so nice.
These are the days I hope the kids will remember…I sure will.
Did you do anything fun over Columbus Day weekend?
