Autumn Lifestyle Pumpkin Patch Family Photo Session

 

Happy Halloween! You have to go check out Foxes Farm Produce Pumpkin Patch in Basildon next year if you haven't made it there this year already! It's so much fun picking pumpkins and who knew there were so many varieties?! 

Last week I went to Foxes Farm in Basildon with my brother, sister-in-law and niece and nephew for some pumpkin patch fun. It was grey and drizzly but with thick coats and wellies, kids do not give a damn! When we arrived, we picked up our wheelbarrow and Jenson - who is 3, insisted on having his own one to push around haha. Which took a while because a wheelbarrow is a big item for such a little man to push around on an uneven surface! But the kids absolutely loved it. There were so many pumpkins to choose from! We walked around the whole farm while the kids selected their favourites to put in their barrows and take home to carve.

Afterwards we discovered the corn field and the kids love running between the rows. Then they played endlessly on the hay stacks with all the other kids- jumping off them and climbing to the top of the tower. Even though it was raining by then, the kids had the best time. All in all- a great morning out! 

It's such a fun Autumn activity for kids to get involved in! And it doesn't stop there. When they got home, the kids got to carve their designs out and put them on the doorstep ready for the trick or treaters to come. They prepared their trick or treat sweets and goody bags and got their halloween costumes ready for their parties.

Here are a few shots of my lovely niece and nephew enjoying the Foxes Farm Produce Pumpkin Patch last week...
