In the computer age that we live in, we don't always take the time out for simpler things.  We don't slow down long enough to enjoy the basics.  Last weekend I had the chance to do so, and every weekend through November 1st, you can do the same.

Nothing takes you back and helps you create memories like a good, old fashioned pumpkin patch.  Addyson, my daughter, got her first real chance to experience that for herself.  I was invited out the Robinson Family Farm Pumpkin Patch to do a live broadcast and thought it would be a great opportunity for a little family time so my wife and I packed up the "Beast" (my loving nickname for my daughter) and away we went.  A little off the beaten path in Temple, but close enough to still see the 363 Loop, it was a great time.  I mean where else can you find a sand box full of corn???

Usually when you take your kids to something like this you walk in expecting to spend some serious cash, but today it was only $10 for her to do all the rides, games, and even make a sand pumpkin that makes for a great souvenir to take home and put on the shelf.


Also, you can't forget the magical experience of running frantically though a field of pumpkins and finding the right one, the perfect one to make the most amazing jack-o-lantern.

If you have some time, and want to make some memories, The Robinson Family Farm Pumpkin Patch is the place to go in Temple.
