It’s Fall Y’all! For Houstonians, this is the dream season. Weather is picture perfect. Even a pandemic cannot slow us down when it comes to enjoying this special time of year.
Our tradition usually leads us to the St Luke’s United Methodist Church pumpkin patch, but thanks to the COVID-19 times, they opted to not host this yearly event. Another wonderful alternative, which is probably not an alternative to others but their primary, is the Memorial Drive Methodist Church pumpkin patch. They were open for big business and we walked away with the biggest pumpkin we could find! Not only do they have an exciting variety of pumpkin options, but adorable phot-op backdrops for the kiddos, and the most expensive pumpkin you can buy is $25. So, have fun picking both big and small! It was our perfect Sunday activity for today, followed up with brunch at Royal Oaks Country Club.
I encourage all who crave this fall festive time of year, to stop on by! No purchase necessary, non denominational to patrons I might add, but definitely a nice gesture to purchase a pumpkin or two as it is supporting local. Plus, pumpkin carving and decorating is a once a year thing! And, I love to follow it up with making pumpkin soup, pumpkin cheesecake, and any other pumpkin recipe I can come up with this time of year!
