I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving weekend!

{Our little pumpkin votive we made from our Krause Berry mini pumpkins – they wanted 10$ for one at the festival!}

It was so warm for the holiday! This must be what it feels like to live in LA… 😉

We had a great weekend surrounded by family and sunshine. Adam and I went with his family to Fort Langley on Saturday for the Annual Cranberry Festival – It was crazy busy! I hadn’t been to the fort in a long time, we said we’ll have to go again on a weekend where there isn’t anything happening so we can actually look into the little shops more.

We wanted to stop by a farm on our way home to get some pumpkins for decorating with. I wanted to check out a new farm that we hadn’t been to, so we stopped by Aldor Acres because I had kept hearing about them. But, when we got there we saw a sign that said “General admission $7” – um really?? haha I didn’t know you had to pay to get in, all I wanted was a couple little pumpkins – And you can only pay Cash for pumpkins, which we did not have. That was a bust.

… So we decided to go to Krause Berry farms where we had been before, and we knew we could get exactly what we wanted without having to shell out another 14$ just to get in.

I love Krause Berry Farms, and they had even completely renovated it since we went last year. The big blue barn is double the size, with another patio for eating, and a much bigger marketplace store. They have a little mini-maze for kids, a pumpkin patch, and farm animals. They also have a carriage ride for 2$ a person, and a play area. As well as their berry farm, which is still open for picking! It was such a gorgeous day out.

It’s the perfect farm for an afternoon with the family, and be sure to grab a snack on the Porch (I recommend the corn pizza and a smoothie!). I have to say, the Krause Berry Farms was much more happening than Aldor, and you don’t have to pay anything to visit =) Bonus!

Sunday night we had dinner at Adam’s parents with their family – Lots of delicious food, and of course dessert. I ended up making ice cream, two pumpkin pies, a pumpkin tart, and an apple pie (i’ll be sharing the recipes soon!) It was a LONG day of baking Saturday.

I am very thankful for our families. My mom just got home from their road trip to Alberta, so we’re doing our dinner next Sunday – which means more Turkey.

Hope everyone had a great long weekend!

    Wow charging $7 to go in & purchase produce, that is unreal!! A family could not afford that kind of charge. Glad you had better luck at Krause Farms. The dahlia flowers are so beautiful. Your picture in front of the pumpkins & squash, looks like a fashion shot for Fall! lol!
    I made the pumpkin swirl brownies & 3 pumpkin pies yesterday. Both Harry & I loved the brownies. We are having our Thanksgiving dinner tonight with pumpkin pie! Missed turkey dinner while we were away over the weekend at the wedding.
