Cross E has become our family's favorite pumpkin patch since we moved back to Utah to raise our littles. We have been to A LOT! (check out our master list HERE). But Cross E just feels like home to us. It's family owned, there are random chickens and dogs wandering the farm. It is a working ranch and you can just feel the love oozing out of every inch of this place. It has a ton of fun stuff to do and they add more every year, but they have been able to maintain that small town/family owned feel and thats why we love them most. Oh and the fact that their pumpkin prices rival that of the grocery store. So double win. 

The kids have been waiting all year for pumpkin patch time.

We are loving the fall collection at Miyuki Baby where we got this darling tunic and tights for Berdee. This shop is another amazing Local favorite in Holladay. Just had to share.

Baby Wells (11m) first Pumpkin Patch! Last year at this time I was ready to pop and couldn't wait to meet our little bounus baby.

First things first, FOOD! 

Cross E serves up some killer fries and the burgers are made with fresh grass fed beef from the ranch. If you haven't had grass fed beef, you best be gettin' yourself down here asap!

We took the new Britax B-Ready G3 out for a test drive. Baby and mommy approved. It did great on the gravel and dirt paths. It had pleanty of storage for our drinks and food, and I love that I can switch the seat from forward to rear facing so easily. 

We have chickens at home, so Berdee (4 yrs) wasn't shy about picking up this sweet hen and giving her some snuggles. Lucky for us the hen was just as sweet as they come.

Piglets! Need I say more?

This year they added a giant hill next to the pumpkin patch. This slide was AWESOME! We had a blast riding it over and over.

You can pick your pumpkin right off the vine, or hunt their pre picked section.

After all the fun we re-fueled with fresh hot doughnuts and sat by the fire. 

If you would like to see some heartbreaking photos from our time at the ranch last year, just click here. I swear my kids are only 1 year younger in these shots, but they look so little. I actually gasped outloud when I looked at them. Why do they have to grow so fast?
