“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”

by Kahlil Gibran

At the weekend we went to a local pumpkin patch that we hadn’t been to before. It was a little bit disappointing and not quite what I had expected. But the girls didn’t notice and they still had fun. We will definitely still be going to our favourite place Millets Farm next week though!

Alice was so excited to see all the pumpkins and I love this photo that captures that excitement.


They had some haystacks that you could climb and Holly wanted to sit on them with her pumpkin to begin with. I think she was quietly watching the others climb to the top and then once she got her courage she was off! I love in this photo that even though you can’t see her face full on, you can tell she is smiling.

    I love Alices smile! I hope you have a better weekend next weekend, its hard to tell what a place is like until you get there. We have a pumpkin patch visit planned next weekend too, and I really hope they have haybales there too.

    Lovely photos of them. Millets is as good as usual, although there were a lot of damaged pumpkins. Enjoy your trip

    Sometimes places like these are disappointing for us adults, but the kids love it! They do look happy #LivingArrows

    Sorry to hear it was disappointing, but Alice’s face is amazing! Glad you’re making it to Millets again though – my sister was there on Sunday and she loved it!

    What a shame but least you managed to get some lovely pics of your girls. We went to one last week and it was great. It was supposed to be open for another week, but I couldn’t see there being enough pumpkins left by then x #LivingArrows

    I can’t wait until we are going pumpkin picking. I picked up some pumpkins in Tesco today for us to carve at the weekend. #livingarrows

    Pumpkins are definitely a highlight of the month aren’t they! Hope the other farm is better though x

    Aww love these! We haven’t been to a pumpkin patch yet although its on our life for half term I am not sure I will make it. Hope the other farm was better and they got the excitement again x
