It’s kind of my favourite time of year right now – bring on the rain boots, sweaters and scarves! One of our must-do’s during the fall is spending as much time visiting our local pumpkin patches and it’s easy to see why – with activities for all ages it’s always a wonderful way to spend the day as a family, and leave with something fun to do!
