Is there any better time to be an American than Pumpkin Season, formerly known as Fall? I'm not sure how the stealthy marketing geniuses manage to change the focus of one holiday from one year to the next.
I have never seen so much pumpkin spice in my life!! From cereal to beer, the flavor is everywhere. When I saw pumpkin spice gum, I knew things were out of hand. Talk about overkill!
Pumpkin patches are taking a close second this year in the overkill department, am I right?!? Thank you social media for that one! I'm as guilty as the next when it comes to the pumpkin patch. I need my annual kid pic. But can we all agree we are totally being ripped off over a few bales of hay and some strategically placed piles of pumpkins!
I'm sure we all know better. It's just too tempting to document our city kids enjoying "country" life. And by enjoying I mean smiling through clenched teeth. From what I've observed kids don't even like pumpkin patches! They are more interested in the inflatable bounce houses and petting zoos at the pumpkin patch. Not quite sure how those things fit into the farm scene but I guess it's all about keeping it authentic $$
