Fall time is the season that most here in Texas wish we had a little more of. There really isn't a defined transitional period; it all happens abruptly. Some things that gradually carry us towards Winter are all the fall traditions our family and others have. Things such as fall family pictures, visiting a pumpkin patch, carving and decorating for festivities, and walking through a corn maze. These are the things that bring our family together during this season and that is without fail. Our Fall gatherings also include food and refreshments whether we are hanging out inside or outdoors. One of my favorite beverages to bring around is Sparkling Ice, I've tried just about every flavor but the ones in this pink variety pack are my favorites. My family and friends enjoy them just as much too and that is why I love to have a pack when friends and family are around.

Our pumpkin patch tradition started 4 years ago when Mila was born and we have gone every year to stroll around and take pictures with the kids since then. It's a great time to let the kids run around or ride on the wagons. We have to resort to celebrating the Fall without the Fall weather but that also allows us to enjoy our beverages cold since the weather here is still in the high 80's! The four flavors of the pink pack variety are Black Cherry, Peach Nectarine, Coconut Pineapple, and Pink Grapefruit. As mentioned above, these are some of the best! And what my family loves the most is that these refreshing drinks are naturally flavored, sugar-free, and caffeine-free. 

We love being able to get our family together and continue this tradition! As Mila gets older she always asks us when October is so we can go pick our pumpkins. Now that she's in school it's so funny because she's learning the seasons, and told us it wasn't Fall yet because the sun was still too hot. 

While it's mostly fun & games when we visit our favorite pumpkin patch, wrangling all the kids to get into one picture, and to smile is one of the hardest things. Having a couple of things to bribe them, like they're favorite sparkling drink really helps!
