The Pumpkin Patch...
As our tour of the farm continued, we saw an assortment of farm animals, including pigs, cows, rabbits, goats, chickens, and more. I was captivated by the "fan tailed" pigeons, who resembled birds with turkey tails! I'd never seen one before.
We listened to some "foot stomping" music on the way to the patch, and were invited to sing along with our hostess. Once we arrived at the patch, each of us was allowed to pick out the pumpkin of our choice to take home with us, and pose for pictures beside a fall display located in the patch. Sometimes Charlie Brown and friends can be seen standing among the pumpkins, but there was no sign of him or his friends on Friday!
I enjoyed going along on Madison's school field trip, and it was my first visit to a pumpkin patch--ever! I guess it just goes to show...you're never too old!
