This year Mike and I took the kids Pumpkin Picking on Columbus Day. We thought it would be perfect since school was closed for Jenna and daycare was closed for Michael. What a beautiful day it was! The sun was shining, not a cloud in the sky and it was warm, but still had the hint of fall in the air.
We headed out to the South Fork this year, to Southampton. I haven't been out that way in a while, my old college stomping grounds. We hit the big pumpkin farm and apparently everyone else had the same idea because it was packed! The kids had a lot of fun playing and picking out our pumpkins.
After a quick lunch, we walked around Southampton Town to window shop - only shopping I can afford out that way! Then we took the kids down to the beach. Again, not a cloud in the sky - it was so beautiful!
Heading home, we cut across to Riverhead so the kids could see the famous big Duck in Flanders. Jenna was amazed. The gift shop in the duck was open, so we got to browse around a bit. The kids were exhausted when we came home, but they really had a great day. Check out the pictures below.
