BJ Reece and Burts Farm

Michael got Columbus Day off, so we took advantage of it and spent the day driving up north to our favorite pumpkin patch and doing many of our traditional fall festivities. One of the reasons I was most excited about Michael getting the day off was because that meant we didn't have to do all these things on a Saturday, which is usually our only option. Last year we went on a Saturday and what usually takes about 8 minutes to drive from Burt's Farm to BJ Reece Apple Orchard took us about an hour. It was so nice to not have much traffic at all this year. There was still a good amount of people at the farm, but everything ran smoothly and the traffic was a breeze.

As soon as we were all dressed and ready, we packed up and started on our adventures. It took about an hour to get to BJ Reece. We planned to get there right when it opened, which turned out to be a good choice. There weren't many people there which meant we got to wonder around and spend more time looking and trying all the different apples. After picking out which apples we wanted to take home, we got our apple cider donuts and apple cider and had our breakfast:) It was a hit. Just as delicious as we remembered.

With full bellies, we headed to the pumpkin patch. On our way we pulled over to grab some boiled peanuts (so good!). Burt's was much more crowded than expected, but it was still fun. We took the kids on the much anticipated hayride, watched the tractors and waved to the drivers, fed the fish, took some photos, played on the tractor, then let the kids each pick out their own pumpkin. Jada was really into it this year, and took her time finding the perfect pumpkin. Tucker, on the other hand, pretty much just picked up the one closest to him and called it good:) Everyone had a great time checking out all the pumpkins and enjoying the weather together. After all our pumpkins were picked, we packed up, ate some snacks, and got on the road. It was a perfect day.
