This year, Maggie and I went down to Chicago and visited Jack's Pumpkin Pop Up. It has been on my list the last couple of years. It is definitely targeted towards Instagrammers and those who want a themed family photo. I enjoyed my time but it's not for everyone, especially with the $30 starting cost. We noticed many folks there were there to drink but everyone was having fun.

Afterwards, we went to JoJo's Shake Bar. They are known for their decorated shakes. We of course got the pumpkin but sadly they were out of the pumpkin pie slice. We also tried the hot chocolate and some fries which were coated completely in cheese. We did not pay the extra $10 to sit outside, but keep that in mind as that is where all the fall decor is!
