Fall is here with cooler weather and Halloween quickly approaching. The South Jersey area has many great places to pick pumpkins. I have taken my son every year with a friend’s daughter to pick pumpkins, take a hayride and race through the corn maze. When we started this tradition they were just 14 months and 10 months old. We had to carry them and their pumpkins making sure they didn’t eat the pumpkins or the dirt.
I love looking at their pictures to see how much they have grown. A favorite memory is when we couldn’t find our way out of the corn maze when the kids were 4 years old. They knew we were going in circles and still talk about it three years later. This year they are old enough to find their way out of the maze on their own so I am sure they will be running ahead hoping their moms are lost in the maze again. This year maybe we will be certain to get lost while they run ahead so we have time to catch up on life and slow it down a little. I hope you get lost in the maze and enjoy the time with your children, friends and family.
