It’s hard to describe how much I love and look forward to going to a pumpkin patch each October. I get positively GIDDY! As soon as September ends I start asking Eric when we get to go to the pumpkin patch and we start bartering about how many pumpkins I get.

Last year I found a pumpkin patch that is THE BEST. It’s the Mabey Pumpkin Patch in South Jordan. They have an AMAZING selection of all different types of pumpkins PLUS the location is breathtaking…which makes for amazing pictures. What could be better than bright orange gourds littering the ground with a back splash of mountains? UM NOTHING!

Things kept coming up so we didn’t get to go to the patch until last Monday! But finally Eric and I, and our friends Ben and Jen, all piled in Ben’s new monster truck and headed to my favorite place on earth in October.

I rarely post “Alison’s Life” pictures. But I want you to see how much I love this place! So here are some shots of hubby, Ben & Jen (best couple name ever!) and my bounty of pumpkins!

I had to force Eric to take that last one! So amazing I know. Anyway, I’ve been loving my pumpkins and loving fall and loving all of you.

If you want to see what I did with all these pumpkins, and some pictures of the house, you can check out SheMakes SheMakes. Should I just combine the blogs? Or is it better seperate? I can’t decide. Ok, have a GREAT weekend!

    I like them separate for some reason- it's like twice as exciting.
