Sardis City Pumpkin Patch
I feel like this is the most cliche thing to say ever, because everyone says it all the time, but my gosh I'm loving fall this year. I mean really loving fall. But I guess it is because I just spent four years in California, where summer is 365 days a year. That is all well and good, and there is something to be said about nonstop sunshine, but there is something more to be said about crisp air and changing leaves. F. Scott Fitzgerald once wrote, "Life Starts All Over Again When It Gets Crisp in the Fall."And I think that is pretty accurate.
So I've been spending a lot of time lately eating pumpkin pie bagels from panera, burning my pumpkin marshmallow scentsy scent, painting my nails with essie's fall collection, drinking salted caramel frappichinos, and taking chilly walks in the woods by our apartment. And no fall would be complete without a trip to the pumpkin patch.
A few weeks ago, I got a really great deal on a set of tickets to a nice pumpkin patch an hour from our house, and so we decided to go on Saturday. This pumpkin patch happened to have a big corn maze and I love corn mazes! Adam learned there was a record time on the maze and being the competitive person that he is, informed me if he had to leave me behind in the maze to beat the record, he would. I mean really! In the corn maze, you have to find 5 different signs representing college football teams. I think we found them in about 45 minutes, and I have no clue if that was a record or not. We of course did other activities like hay rides and pumpkin picking.
We finished the day with a carb heavy dinner at the Olive Garden where we ate so many free breadsticks that I'm surprised we didn't turn into breadsticks, which makes it a perfect fall day don't you think?
