Hello my gorgeous friends !
So, I know I said I was going to post this a few days ago, but I thought that I would give my lovely Halloween costume a day to shine on it’s own before putting this post up ! I know Halloween is past and pumpkins equal Halloween, but pumpkins also equal fall decor, so I feel like this is still relevant ! Either way, once again my friends James, Nicole and I went to a pumpkin patch together but this time we headed to Chappell Farms, and it was amazing of course. I feel like this is a new tradition and I’m loving it. At first, we wanted to go to Rounds Ranch again but they were only open weekends and we couldn’t find a day that worked for us all so instead we decided to go to Chappell Farms which is open weekdays !
Not going to lie, Rounds Ranch was slightly more fun for a few reasons but we still had a great time at Chappell Farms ! The few main differences were the corn mazes, look of the pumpkins and food stands. On weekends I’m sure Chappell Farms would be much better, they have a second field that has better pumpkins to choose from and all of their food stands are all open ( yes that is a factor that is the utmost importance ). As it was though, the pumpkins we got to choose from during the week weren’t that nice; they were mostly green, small and sad (which makes sense because we paid 5 dollars less than weekend admission) and finding a good one took a very long time. I actually ended up buying one of the good ones for sale at the front that they have out because I really couldn’t find a big one I liked in the field. I did get the small one you see in photos though ! Also, the corn maze was fenced off so you couldn’t get lost and was a little too easy, whereas the one at Rounds Ranch we did get lost last year and it was hilarious.
Overall though, we still had a ton of fun because who doesn’t have fun at a Pumpkin Patch, but if I would definitely recommend checking out Chappell Farms on the weekend for a better pick of the field and more food stands would be open. It was such a lovely day for going to the field, the perfect temperature, not too sunny for photos and overall super chill and quiet. One thing I did really like about Chappell Farms that Rounds Ranch didn’t have was a gift store inside full of lovely Halloween decor ! They also had more cute little setups to take photos and it was more kid friendly I feel. I think both of them had their pros and cons, I’m glad we got to visit both !
After we all found our pumpkins, we sat down for some hot dogs and the most delicious apple cider I think I have ever had ! It was sooooo good, and I would go back to get more right now if I could ! This photo above was the view from our table as well so it was just such a nice way to relax. Unfortunately I didn’t get to try their homemade pumpkin pie because like I said, weekday, but I would really love to next year because I’m sure it would be amazing.
I had such a fun day with these guys, they are such goof balls and I can’t wait to go do it again next year ! Once again to take the photos of all of us in the field (which ended up only being one good one you can see further up in the post) we had to set up a makeshift pumpkin tripod except because this field didn’t have any large pumpkins it was a huge struggle and kept falling over which just made us laugh at our ridiculousness ! We also had a dance party to this western music that was blaring from this water tower thing that was hilarious and very unique haha. The day overall was so much fun, if you have never been to a pumpkin patch with your friends, do it because it is a staple fall time activity that will definitely get you feeling festive.
Lastly of course I have to talk about my outfit quickly as I’m sure some of you are wondering where things are from, I have linked them all in previous posts as none of them are new so if you want to see each thing styled differently go check out my Archive. I will also try to find similar things to link above for you so check it out for my recommendations !
Thank you so much for reading, I really do appreciate each one of you who support me ! You are the best, have a lovely rest of fall (which if you live in Canada will be short lived unfortunately) ugh… well… onto that dreaded S word soon I guess. Until then though, enjoy this weather !
