Pumpkin Patch...


This past Sunday afternoon we tagged along with family and friends for a pumpkin patch visit!!  I LOVE pumpkins, mums and all the fun that Fall brings... Leading right up to my favorite holiday... Thanksgiving. 

Fall brings bright, clear, sunny days... Cool in the mornings and warm in the afternoons...

 
The little pumpkin patch was so nice... There were ducks to feed...
 

Hula hoops to be hula-ed...


Swings to swirl...


Pickles to be enjoyed... in cool eating spots...


All under the watchful eyes of Dad and Pop Pop...

 
But, most of all, there were pumpkins... and more pumpkins... and more pumpkins... I am part of a long line of pumpkin and Fall lovers... My Mom's house is brimming over with pumpkins this time of year... So is my daughter's...
 
And, Little B ran herself DOWN hauling pumpkin... after pumpkin... after pumpkin... to the wagon while her Dad tried to discreetly remove some of her harvest... 
 
Zack said she fell asleep on the way home only to wake up saying, "Pumpkin!!"  I think the continuity of the long line of pumpkin lovers is insured into the next generation... ;)

I'm from a long line of fall-pumpkin-colorful leaves lovers too! Little Miss is growing up quickly. And, please tell that adorable pickle eater that I love a good pickle myself. Happy fall!

Best,
Bonnie

Pumpkins are pretty wonderful, and I'm so glad that we have so many great varieties now!!!

I'll bet you're looking forward to Thanksgiving next month, and continuing with the pumpkin theme....**smile**

Wishing you a great day.

this is the first year....in almost a dozen....that my son and his family will not be sharing our visit to the pumpkin patch!!! they are as devastated as we are!!!! it will just be all more more precious next year.....but until then, I felt compelled to gather enough pumpkins for my porch as if they were all coming! I'm drowning in orange and green and bumpy pumpkins!!! (and I love it!)

I can't believe how big Little Miss B is!! What a fun Sunday. What could be better than pumpkins and little punkins to love on. How sweet.

Amanda said...

We needed in on this fun, I can tell! And would you please look at B's boots?! So cute to match her momma. =) We're holding out for pumpkin patch fun until you're here. The countdown is on, baby! xoxo

Sounds like a fun adventure! We had some pumpkin soup in Germany which was very tasty. Looks like you have quite a few of the major ingredient!

That looks like a lot of fun. I've only ever bought what they had at the grocery store. This looks way more exciting. I may have to start a new tradition.
