Pumpkin Picking Time

Pumpkin Patch

It's a little odd for us to make a trip to the pumpkin patch wearing shorts and sandals. Usually we are bundled up wearing hats, mittens and coats, clutching warm cups of hot cider and bracing ourselves against the damp wind that bites our noses. We have a new home so we have new adventures.

So far this year, we have made the trip out to the pumpkin patch twice. We've gone on hay rides (and then suffered from countless chigger bites!), explored the corn maze, played in the pumpkin house, looked at (but did not feed) the horses, snacked on fresh kettle corn and carefully hunted for just the right pumpkins.

If they could, I think the boys would go to the pumpkin patch every weekend in October!

Pumpkins in a Wagon

We came home with 3 large pumpkins, 2 small pumpkins, 4 bags of kettle corn, 2 jars of homemade zucchini bread and butter pickles and 1 jar of homemade fig preserves. As well as a little dirty, a little tired and very happy.

Looks like a great time! Great pictures!
Bill and I wandered around the corn maze yesterday too - and though not in sandals, in short sleeves up here even.
That carved tree is so cool.
Love ya, Ali
