The Pumpkin Patch
We've had some really beautiful weather the past few days. The temperature was in the 60's today. Wow! That is so awesome! I love it when the
weather is cooler! So my son and I decided to go out and enjoy the sights of fall.
There is a local church in my neighborhood that has an annual fundraiser. The youth sell pumpkins to raise money for their summer camps. Well, each year is has gotten bigger and bigger. Earlier this week they received there truck full of beautiful pumpkins.
They now have a pile of straw for the kiddo to play in and lots of little red wagons to be pulled around in. Today the kids were having a blast in the piles of straw.
I noticed they have also added fresh popped corn for sale. There are a couple of places to take a picture here and there. How much fun.
I could have stayed longer but my son was wanting to move on. This one is mine. I just love the texture. It's so ugly I didn't think anyone else would take it home.
Look at this lovely. Isn't the color cool. I could have spent a bundle of money but I held out and bought only three. I always purchase in three's because I have three children. I know, how cool am I. Ha ha!
Well, time to go. Wishing you all a beautiful fall week.
