The tradition started when my brother Adam was just a baby. Every year we pick out pumpkins at a local farm and then head to Louisville for the best homemade spaghetti in the state.
For the past few years we've been visiting Cottonwood Farms in Boulder http://www.cottonwoodfarms.com/index.php. It's a great working farm with animals and a corn maze. We try every year and have never successfully found our way through the corn maze.
It's always fun to be the only group there with no small children.....seems as though that's the reason most families go to the farm. However, we don't need any small children in the family to be completely entertained by this place.
After we had picked out our pumpkins, we headed to downtown Lousiville to the Blue Parrot restaurant who makes the BEST thick homemade spaghetti noodles.
Then home to Denver to promotly fall asleep watching the Broncos. What a great day....
