One thing I wanted to do this year was to go to a pumpkin patch. The last time I have been to a pumpkin patch was when I was in the 8th grade. I remember the thoughts of walking through the farms' trail and seeing all the pumpkins, so I wanted to relive the same experience again. A few weeks ago, I found a pumpkin patch on Instagram in Georgia, and I decided to take a trip there. 

The farm I went to was quite large, with enough space for people to roam around while also social distancing, which was one of my concerns because I wanted to enjoy myself while also being safe. I also made sure to wear my mask for better protection. I only took my mask off when I was far away from other people while taking pictures.

 Upon entry, the first thing you can look at is the animals. There were so many, from llamas, donkeys, and roosters to goats and pigs. I could not feed them because that would have cost extra, but I talked to them and took pictures. After the animals, you were free to do what you wanted, so we, my friend and I went through the corn maze and on a tractor-trailer ride.

While we were there we had to take some pictures. There was a huge flower field on the farm which made the perfect background for pictures. I was hesitant at first because there were a lot of bees swarming around but I was to get a few. Afterwards, there was also a small patch of pumpkins where you can take pictures as well. Unfortaly I did not buy one but it felt fun to be a kid again and look at all the pumpkins. 

With all that has happened in 2020, this year's festivities might be a little different, but it's the little things that matter. Heading out to the pumpkin patch was a fun activity to engage in and ultimately get me out of my room for a few hours.
