Every fall we go to the pumpkin patch.
In California, we went to Lombardi Ranch and I was sort of sad to miss it, not sure if they had something like it here.
It's called Sweet Picken's Pumpkin Patch.
The owner's last name is Pickens.
But, the favorite thing wasn't the pumpkins.
In fact, their pumpkins were kind of lacking in luster due to our cool summer weather.
It was a giant pillow!
and slid down the sides
got sand in our socks and laughed.
You can sort of see how big it is in this not so great photo of me and really cute picture of Little Bear.
Then we were off to race tractors, with bike pedals.
I laughed so hard watching Jackie Boy taxi Little Bear around.
He sat there so cool and calm, enjoying the ride.
Toots had total control, navigating the turns
And then Mister Luke got a passenger too.
We made some new friends
and took a train ride in some wooden carts pulled by Mrs. Pickens in her John Deer tractor.
Here is a really great picture that Hottie Husband took of us on the train.
He knows I don't get in many family pictures so he was sure to focus on me!
I handed him back the camera and said, "Hmmm. Try again."
A little better this time.
At least my whole head was in it!
