Yesterday, my husband and I planned a trip to the Pumpkin Patch for my sisters and cousin and it was such a soothing experience. There is nothing that gives me more joy than spending quality time with family. As you know, Holloween is right around the corner and you're probably looking to get into some family fun activities and can't really figure out what to do as yet. Here is my suggestion for all who are in the NYC area.

We visited this cute farm/flower shop in Long Island named Borellas Farm Stand "Borella’s Farm Stand was started in 1960 by Joseph Borella, and his wife Theresa. Joe owned a potato farm, and Theresa, a flower shop. Over the years the farm evolved to include a broader array of flowers and vegetables, and is now one of the largest producers of beautiful flowers and fresh vegetables on Long Island." This was a great place to visit since it had the Pumpkin Farm, Flower Stand, and a Vineyard. Just the perfect spot for adult and children.

For all my plant lovers, please check out the flower stand. It's beautiful and works as a great background for pictures. My family and I couldn't get enough of it.

Whispers Vineyard

 

After we checked out the flower stand, we visited the Wine Tasting shop nearby and it was so beautiful. There was live music and the wine tasted great. This was definitely one of my faves!

Happy Fall 

This is all for now. I hope this post inspires you to take a trip to enjoy some fall activities with your family. This trip was not about the activity, but more about bonding with my family.
