Photo Friday: At The Pumpkin Patch


It’s Photo Friday again! I do try to keep my entries to this fun Friday tradition travel-themed, but every so often I come across some particularly cute photos of my kids which just need to be shared :)

These photos were taken at Biringer Farms, outside Everett, which was our preferred Pumpkin Patch in the Seattle area for many years. (This year my almost-tween and teen are not at all interested in pumpkins, but we did spend a very long time at Display + Costume assembling all the bits and pieces needed for some intricate costumes).

Since this isn’t a very Halloween-y post, I’ve included the post I wrote last year on differences between how Halloween is celebrated in the U.S. compared to Ireland in Vera Marie’s round-up of Halloween posts on A Travelers Library.

Reminder: There’s only three days left to enter my awesome Lands’ End Kids Winter Outerwear giveaway. Tell your friends!

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!

    Your kids look so happy at the pumpkin patch sitting together on a large pumpkin. Seeing so many photos of pumpkin farms is really making me want to travel to the US just for that unfortunately that’s not something we do over in Europe!

    Oooohh… they look so happy…!!!! I wish there were some pumpkinfarms in Guatemala so I could take my boy for a fun day too…

    Great pictures. It’s fun to see food amuse kids, I guess it’s the Halloween theme that has something to do with it as well.

    As far as I’m concerned these are travel photos, because they’re showing me something completely different to what we have at home. We don’t grow many pumpkins in the UK as our summers aren’t long and hot enough. We do celebrate Halloween, but I’ve never visited a pumpkin farm. It looks like fun!
