the pumpkin patch

I think that, even after my boys are grown up, I'll continue to go to a pumpkin patch to get my pumpkins. I find it so enjoyable to leave the city for farm country - just a short distance - yet another world entirely. This farm is our favorite.

Happy Monday to you.

How wonderful. We have some already carved pumpkins at work, they were there for the wedding we had on Sunday. They looked beautiful

I just love a pumpkin patch. I recently went to a farm, and wheeled around a red wagon to carry my selected pumpkins. It was great fun! :)

Gosh-I miss that so much! No pumpkin patches in south florida! Your photos brought back such great memories. Oh well, I can still buy pumpkins- but they have to suffer through 90° heat and they don't like it very much!

Happy Monday to you, Lecia! I can't believe the size of those pumpkins your boys are walking on ... our local variety is a midget pumpkin in comparison!

Wow that is some pumpkin patch...too many choices and lots of fun!

That's still one of my favorite things to do in the fall. I always look for a few that are a bit quirky.

How great to have the same photo on the pumpkin wagon with your boys year after year!
Looks like lots of fun.

How fun! Now I want to visit a pumpkin patch. Wow. the boys are getting so big.

And my girls aren't the only ones who are getting big! Doesn't time fly...

We absolutely adore our pumkin patch. It's about 20 miles away, and is a family run operation that includes haybale mazes, hay rides, a petting zoo, animals to just look at, sunflower stands....It's just gorgeous! Of course, they've had to import pumpkins again this year because our weather was pretty lousy for growing them this summer - so in some ways we just have to pretend.

Jealous! I miss them North East and pumpkin filled fall. We don't get much of that over here in Sweden. Actually, it pretty much already feels like winter. I hate it.
