Who’s ready for some fun fall festivities? The weather’s getting cooler, so you might get to wear that comfy sweater you’ve been waiting to pull out of your closet and start making that hot apple cider you’ve been craving for the past month or so. And try to contain your excitement for one of the most enjoyable fall events — pumpkin picking!

Who doesn’t love picking out their own pumpkin? (We can hardly wait!) You can go with family, friends or just about anyone you can think of. Everyone can pick out the perfect pumpkin to add to their fall decor, or pick out one to make a great Jack-O-Lantern because Halloween is creeping up on us slowly (see what I did there?).
