My kids are too old for the pumpkin patch this year. I'm sad about that. I found these the other day when I was cleaning out a drawer.
They made my heart ache just a little -- thinking about the days when a pumpkin patch was magic. Giant pumpkins you could set three kids on for a great photo opp., a tractor pulling a huge wagon packed with people, scare crows, and a huge field full of pumpkins still on the vine. Eden and Claire looked forward to it all year long. A few nights later, we would get out the carving tools and spend the evening creating master pieces to be displayed on the front step on Halloween eve. Such good days.
Have you visited a pumpkin patch this year? If not, you should. And I think I should too -- even if we can no longer fit on the giant pumpkin.
