Hey everyone! Fall is one of my favorite seasons. And having a toddler makes it even better!
Picking pumpkins, apples, and of course hayrides all come to mind.
Today in our Life As A Toddler Series, we wanted to share a few of our favorite places that we take our kiddos outside of the city, in the “burbs” of “The Burgh” when gourds and pumpkin season starts!
We will be visiting some of these places throughout the month of October, so let us know if you would ever like to meet up, or need any suggestions!
