Looking for the Great Pumpkin

Over the weekend, we went on our annual pumpkin patch trip to Pearce's Farm in Wisconsin. This is one of my favorite Fall traditions as it's one part family fun, one part shopping bliss. There are eight of us that go each year and we start the day out playing in over-sized hamster wheels. Next up is climbing the giant hay stacks complete with slides and tunnels. Pearce's really does go all out on this thing, you can jump, climb, and kids (& adults alike) get all their energy out. There is also a hay ride plus a corn maze, and both are a must to round out the "family fun" portion of your trip.

Next up, the shopping. This is my favorite part! I love going through all the local honey, jams, apple cider donuts, caramel apples, apple butter, cheeses, pumpkins, and so many more items. My kids get a painted rock each year, this time they both choose ones that looked like farms. There really is something for everyone and I think that is why we all love coming back year after year!

This year I decided to wear a classic plaid top with jeans. Nothing says Fall like plaid, so it was a no brainier when it came to dressing for our family day at the farm. I decided to keep it pretty simple by adding a brown bag, blue booties, tortoise sunglasses, and a crisp white coat. In the end, it was the perfect layered look for a day in the sun looking for our great pumpkins.
