Pumpkin patchin'

As we prepare for Halloween, we had to go for a fun visit to the pumpkin patch. The pumpkin patch we go to is located about 30 minutes outside of the city and it is on an actual farm where you can pick the pumpkins from the field that they have grown in.

It was a really fun experience to take Maya to a farm outside the city because it was really child-friendly. There were farm animals (Maya loved the baby goat and the big fat pig), there were songs and music, and a tractor hay ride took you to the pumpkin field. On the field, you get a chance to walk around and pick out your pumpkin, big or small. We picked out a small one and we will teach her how to take out the filling this week. Even though she was wearing rain boots, Maya didn't like the muddy field too much. She freaked out when she stepped on some rotted pumpkin! She was more into the songs and the animals.

The last time we went was when she was only 5 months old. Last year, we didn't have a chance to go because I was recovering from meningitis. Although husband-ji didn't want to go, he finally agreed and we all had a great time. Maya came back singing the "Old MacDonald had a farm" song for days after! It was a really delightful event and she's at the perfect age for it now!

Next up...Halloween!

      Re: the link --- have heard of this before from friends, thank god it is finally making the news...it is unfortunate and unfair..

  2. Great post dear. I started following your blog yesterday itself and let me tell you, I am loving what I read. I read almost 30 posts back to back. I loved what you had to share. In the end, I feel that ultimately, love is love. No matter your matter is Indian or any foreigner, love remains same for everyone. I pity people who think that an Indian cannot love a foreigner or vice-versa, but someone should tell them that love knows no boundaries of age, culture, religion, etc. I hope your blog reaches out to such narrow minded people and help in changing their way of seeing things.
