A Visit to the Pumpkin Farm
Autumn is well and truly here in our part of the world, so recently we visited a local farm to admire the pumpkin sculptures. Every year they create a series of sculptures based on a theme, and previous themes have included dinosaurs and fairy tales.
This year it is 'Swiss things' and thankfully the Swiss things weren't too obscure, so we worked out what most of them were! Things like a Swiss Army Knife and someone playing an alp horn.
The sculptures were nice, but not as interesting to the girls as the dinosaurs were last year. Plus I had underestimated just how quickly that Autumn chill can arrive, and failed to pack warm enough coats.
We were all ready to go inside and eat hot pumpkin soup pretty quickly! But despite the cold we did venture back out eventually so everyone could choose a pumpkin to take home and carve.

About Me & Mine
I am Fiona, wife to Nigel and mum to Sofie (9) and Emily (7). We live in Switzerland and fill our days with craft, playing and exploring. We like mess, noise and being outside.
Favourite place in the world:
The mountains. The whole family love hiking and skiing, so the mountains offer year round entertainment. Plus we live in Switzerland so we have plenty of choice when it comes to exploring mountains!
Favourite things to do outdoors:
Ski, sled, swim, get muddy, camp, build fires, make noise, run around, collect stuff, hike, ride bikes, explore and be together as a family. If its outside then we will probably like it.
