SYRACUSE, N.Y. (NCC News) — In a heartwarming celebration of family bonds and tradition, Brett Wakowski and his 7-year-old daughter, Arielle, from Marietta, New York, continued their annual family tradition of visiting Tim’s Pumpkin Patch in Marietta, New York. For Wakowski, this tradition is more than just seasonal fun; it’s a testament to the power of family bonds and the creation of long-lasting memories.
This family tradition is at the heart of Wakowski’s role as a dedicated father, emphasizing the significance of the family tradition he and his daughter share. He believes that shared experiences and activities are what create meaningful memories.
“Family tradition: every year we come here to pick pumpkins and see the animals peacock, goats.”
For Wakowski, being a father is a role he holds close to his heart. It’s about instilling values, creating memorable moments, and, most importantly, strengthening the bond with his daughter. Their yearly visit to Tim’s Pumpkin Patch is a tradition passed down through generations.
Tim’s Pumpkin Patch is different from other pumpkin patches for the Wakowski family because it has been an environment that serves as a reminder of the importance of love, family and the significance of having a father in a child’s life.Wakowski said seeing other family’s bond at Tim’s Pumpkin Patch further shows the value of these traditions.
“I think it’s great to see parents’ bond with their children and enjoy nice weather outside while we have it.” said Wakowski.
As the pumpkins are picked, sugar donuts are eaten, and the last sips of apple cider are swallowed. It was a good day. And although the pumpkins will eventually wilt and be tossed in the trash, Brett and Arielle have another treasured memory of quality time spent together—the most precious gift of all.
