Pumpkin Patch(es) + Apple Picking


Does anything scream fall more than pumpkin patches and apple picking? It’s funny what a difference one weekend can make! We went to our usual pumpkin patch, that we’ve gone to since Jason and I started dating, the last weekend of September. It was high-70s/low-80s, so it didn’t feel much like fall. This last weekend, the first of October, we went to a new pumpkin patch and then the apple orchard. It was mid-60s and it. was. perfect. AND we’ve found a new favorite pumpkin patch! There were lots of animals, tons of pumpkins AND it’s super close to the apple orchard. We’re lucky to live somewhere so close to so many fun things.

Can I just take a second to shout out the camera on the iPhone 7? It blows my mind! The apple orchard was Blaire’s favorite because… apples! She remembered it from last year and knew she could eat as many apples as she wanted. We stocked up on apples, apple cider, and caramels. Yum! We ended our night with a bonfire at a friend’s… and s’mores. Can it be fall forever? xo

  • ice cream outside with two of my favorite people. when it’s only 70° outside you can actually eat your ice cream without it melting all over us... and by us I mean them. 👆🏻👆🏻 #blaireandben

  • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • When your brother is getting big but you still want to hold him... you gotta pinch his butt because he’s so wiggly. 😂😬😍 #blaireandben •

  • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome
  • Happy Halloween! 🎃 👻 #blaireandben

  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
