Soccer Balls and Pumpkins!

This is Madeleine in the thick of the action today. Watching her is always a great start to a Saturday. How do you follow it up you ask?

With a trip to the pumpkin patch. This was my first trip to a real pumpkin patch. It was also my first time in a corn maze and a hay bale maze. Good times! I highly recommend it! Here are just a few of the offerings:

Madeleine in the tube!
If you prefer a more family filled event there is always the hayride!

Which I loved because the tractor driver totally reminded me of Dad. A big grin, driving a tractor, telling stories to all.
The tractor dropped us of here:

Beautiful don't you think? Certainly Linus would spend Halloween hanging out here waiting for the Great Pumpkin. Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see.

And so we finally wrapped up our perfect day at the pumpkin patch. Four full size pumpkins in tow, to mini's for fun.
Oh and one moral reminder to me.

Of why I will NEVER eat veal.


  1. It makes me want to go! Which patch did you visit??

  2. It was Airlee Farms, off 99 on the way to Monmouth. So worth it!
