Pumpkin Patch 2014
Our family is in a rush trying to get everything ready for a road trip to see some old friends, but we had to take some time to slow down, step away, and make time for our Autumn Tradition.
This week we made time to visit our local pumpkin patch. Panda spotted a cultivator harvesting corn in the distance and took off like a racehorse. He loved the rocks, the dry packed earth, corn kernels strewn like jewels in the dust, but he could have cared less about the pumpkins. I'm sure that will change when he learns they are eatable.
This year the farm had these wonderful peddle tractors. For Panda it was love at first sight.
There was also a corn pit. It might just be the biggest corn pit I have ever seen. Since we went during the week there was no one else there and Panda was in bliss. I thought it would take an army to get him out of there, but he was actually very well behaved... And very tired.
What Autumn traditions have you been enjoying with your family?
Be well and shine on.
