As the cooler weather and shorter days roll into Chicago, my family is reminded to make the most of our time outside. We enjoy walks in Millennium Park and Grant Park with stops at Buckingham Fountain and Lurie Garden for an occasional picnic. Autumn isn’t complete, however, without a trip to Bengston’s Pumpkin Farm. I’ve been going there for hayrides since I was in kindergarten, and my son is really looking forward to the train ride and petting zoo this year!
