I don’t see how a pumpkin patch could be more sincere than this one. —It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

Recently, my best friends and I went to the Dallas Arboretum for a much-needed day out. We really enjoyed it too!

The weather was so perfect.

It was a crisp fall day. The leaves were floating to the ground with the cool breeze as if it were snowing colorful leaves.

Fall was definitely in the air and I loved every moment of it! Strolling around for a few hours with my best friends was just what I needed to relax after three crazy months at my day job.

That said, what kind of friend would I be if I didn’t share a little glimpse of our experience with you?

DALLAS ARBORETUM: CHARLIE BROWN’S THE GREAT PUMPKIN

Right when you walk in, you immediately feel a feeling of happiness wash over you. I smiled so big once I passed through the gates. Maybe it was because it was my first real outing after a quarter of a year. Or it could be me excited to finally experience fall outdoors, haha!

While this photo below wasn’t at the front of the entrance of Dallas Arboretum: Charlie Brown’s The Great Pumpkin, it sure took my breath away. Talk about a sophisticated “pumpkin patch” am I right?

Speaking of entrance, once you took a few steps, you were surrounded by pumpkins, pumpkins, and more pumpkins! I felt like a child once more when I saw pumpkins…everywhere.

This house was the perfect “neutral” pumpkin house for a photo opp, ha!

The other houses were cute too. However, some were missing pumpkins so I didn’t post those photos because of the gaps. It was the next to the last day of the event so it made sense they weren’t going to replace them.

Check out these cute Peanuts topiaries! Aren’t they adorable? This was so fun to see.

And look at all the pumpkin varieties! I had no idea that many existed. We went through learning the names of them all.

Snoopy was by far the cutest one out of all of them! I stood next to them so you can see the size. For reference, I’m 5′ 4″!

What’s the Dallas Arboretum: Charlie Brown’s The Great Pumpkin without the GREAT pumpkin

I had to zoom out, take a few steps back, and snap a photo at an angle to capture most of this massive scene.

The piles of pumpkins ended here as we entered to explore the rest of the Arboretum.

TRAILS & GARDENS

The Arboretum had a ton of trails and gardens. This magnolia tree reminded me of my best friend’s mom. I took a moment to remember her as she loved magnolia flowers.

Many small trails wrapped all around the Arboretum like this one.

I snapped this scene as it reminded me of Central Park in New York.
