What a great day we had at the pumpkin patch this week! My wifey and I had been dying to take our kid since the first morning of Fall, and we’d been waiting patiently for clear skies to go and take some nice family photos. Once the morning came, I woke up to my wifey already dressing our child in a cute little plaid outfit, and clearly someone was more over the moon than I was! However, I also noticed when we had woke up that I was feeling pretty hot and sweaty, so i checked the thermostat, and saw that even though it was set to 78 degrees, the a/c was already struggling to keep the apartment cool, that wasn’t a good sign at all, but it was clearly an attractive morning outside, so we ventured out anyway, and as soon as we stepped outside the apartment, I could imagine how hot it was outside! We abruptly got to the car, where our vehicle said the temperature outside was in the low 90’s! This was hardly Fall weather, but we were committed to getting our family pictures. We had the cooling system in our car blowing at max output, and we were making every bit count until we got to the pumpkin patch. Thankfully, the pumpkin patch had plenty of shade, and several fans were running around the patch to make a light breeze blow through. It was just enough for us all to stay cool in the incredible heatwave. My wifey and I were over the moon because we not only kept our cool, but had some nice pictures taken in the process! Needless to say, we came back home and cranked the a/c to the max – it had to have been the hottest day on record in decades.
