Photo Friday: At The Pumpkin Patch

Posted on | October 29, 2009 | 7 Comments


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!

    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!

    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!

    These Pumpkin patches are a real American thing – they don’t have anything like that over here in the UK
