Culpeper And The Pumpkin Patch
Wow, hey there blog. I’ve been a bit busy lately and haven’t gotten around to the bloggy blog world!
Well, to continue with our anniversary weekend (which now seems ages ago), the next day of our 4-day weekend included a little trip to Culpeper, VA which is about 20 minutes west of where we live, and we also took Abby to the pumpkin patch at Round Hill Farm.
Culpeper is a cute little town (and the name alone reminds me of H.B. Culpeper’s from IUP) with quaint little shops and eateries with a view of the Shenandoah Mountains off in the distance. There was a typical Main Street with no chain stores or restaurants and it gave you that small town, homey feel. To read more on Culpeper, visit http://visitculpeperva.com/.
We ate a restaurant called The Stable. Of course the sandwiches all had history-related names and there was Civil War decor on the walls!
These are the cakes made down south y’all!!
Next was pumpkin picking at Round Hill Farm, just outside of Culpeper. They had a hayride to the pumpkin patch of course, as well as inflatable pumpkins for the kids to jump in, playground type activities, corn mazes, petting zoo, apples, gourds, and more. Miss Abigail had a bit of a breakdown in the middle of the pumpkin patch but eventually calmed down. She wanted to walk independently but kept getting tripped up on the pumpkin vines… but yet she did not want to hold our hands or let us carry her. Stress over pumpkins, let me tell ya. We got some pumpkins, mums, gourds, and apples from Round Hill.
Abby loved playing in the “cornbox” (and had a freakout moment after we got her out to move onto the next thing):
Day 3 of anniversary weekend coming next (hopefully not in like 3 weeks from now!).
