Tiptoeing Through the Pumpkin Patch

Sonny Acres Farm Red Barn Illinois Here in the Midwest, visiting a pumpkin patch is practically paramount to the definition of fall. So a few weeks Katherine and I hopped in the car and went to the pumpkin patch I’ve been visiting since I was a wee one: Sonny Acres Farm.Sed Bona at Sonny Acres Farm in October It was my first time back since 2006!Sonny Acres Farm Pumpkin WagonAnd though some things had changed, I was most surprised by the things which were exactly the same as my childhood memories. It’s funny how a place can trigger so many nostalgic sensations, isn’t it? Sonny Acres Farm Illinois Pumpkin Patch Sonny Acres Farm Pumpkins and CabbagesSonny Acres is a true pumpkin haven! Every shape, size, and color of pumpkin, gourd and squash can be found here…Sonny Acres Farm Halloween Tomb Gravestone Headstone RIPAs well as a few haunted friends.Sonny Acres Fall Pumpkin Patch Sonny Acres Farm Gourds Sonny Acres Farm Pumpkin Patch RowsI had a marvelous time capturing all the autumn color during our visit and the weather was simply perfect! Isn’t there something so magical about autumn and the harvest season?
Sonny Acres Farm Petting Zoo LlamaNaturally we couldn’t resist visiting and cooing over the sweet farm animals located on the grounds. This llama was particularly amused at our visit. I like to think we became friends.

Sharing is caring after all.

Sonny Acres Farm PumpkinsSed Bona Pumpkin Patch Blanket Scarf OutfitI kept my outfit simple layering this blazer (seen before in this post) over a simple nude sweater and wearing my comfortable leather plimsolls to walk around in. I know I’m late to the blanket scarf trend but I really had no idea what I was missing out on!
