Pumpkin Patch Field Trip October 2008

Yesterday we went to the pumpkin patch with some of the other families at church. Grammie was our tour guide. We got to learn about some of the things they grow on the farm including sweet potatoes and cotton, see a variety of animals including a goat and cow that had to go to the bathroom right in front of us, take a hayride and pick our own pumpkins. At the end of the tour, we got an apple! Funny story - Noah was climbing on one of the fences and Grammie took him down and swatted his bottom. Brian, who didn't know Grammie was, well....Grammie said to Rick, "Man, who does that lady think she is swatting Noah's butt. I am keeping Leland away from her!"

Learning about different pumpkins and gourds

love your pictures at the patch!


I am not sure how it started. I guess maybe it was a genuine illness at first. Then the teenager babysat a little late on a Saturday night. ...
