Generally in the fall we take a little jaunt over to one of the local pumpkin patches. This year we visited Bellewood Acres again, for two reasons. A. Bethany had recently run a cross country race there and wanted to show her dad the course and how it went. And 2. We had “dealsaver” money to spend there. (For those of you who do not understand the “A. and 2.” reference, it’s from the Paul Reiser & Helen Hunt show from years ago called Mad About You that Ed & I watched together while we were dating and first married. On the show, Paul & Jamie had their first child, a daughter, shortly after we had our first child, a daughter, obviously, and we still reference that show frequently!)
We had some tasty food (although I was disappointed that they had sold out of their cider donuts for the day by the time we got there), looked around the shop, and the girls went squelch squerch in the muddy patch to pick out their pumpkins. (In case you’re wondering about THAT reference, it’s from the children’s book, Going on a Bear Hunt).
Sarah took the camera for the day.
