We checked out the Pfloating Pumpkin Patch today! We had already planned on going before the cold front hit this weekend taking us from the 90s to the 40s overnight🥶, but we bundled up and faced the cold & on and off rain to check out this fun pumpkin patch with a Texas-twist! The pool is heated so the water felt fine but getting out into the 55 degree temps sure felt chilly, but I brought warm clothes, and they were serving up hot chocolate, and then the girls had a blast painting their pumpkins, doing a craft, and climbing all over the hay bales!🎃 #pfloatingpumpkinpatch #itsapflugervillething #fallintexas🍁
