Oh Pumpkin Patch, Oh Pumkin Patch

We went to my parents home on Sunday. As I mentioned before, my dad is a wonderful gardener. Well, he had harvested all of his pumpkins and had them all laid out ready for the grandkids. I think I was more excited than the kids. After dinner, we all went outside and each family walked away with six beautiful pumpkins.

I love pumpkins! It must be because they are the symbol of my favorite season. I have been wanting to take Ashlyn to the local pumpkin patch, but no need - these were FREE! Who can beat that! Thanks Grandpa, we love you!

I love fall days when the sky is blue and the air is crisp. Cold, but not too cold. Ashlyn was so happy to be outside on Sunday. I need to take advantage of days like this because it won't be long until it will just be too darn cold to go outside.

And just one more picture. Ashlyn loves her daddy. It has been so cute lately, because she is always asking about her daddy. "Where daddy go?" I get this question on a daily basis. I explain to her that he is at work, and then we call him. She loves calling daddy when he is at work and telling him about her day.

I agree Jamie, there is something magical about pumpkins, especially as kids. For all the crap we give Brian, I know he is a wonderful dad! Love you all!

That is great just going to the parents' house to pick out pumpkins! When we were young my parents grew a ton! We stacked them all on our front porch (I bet there were at least 100 pumpkins!) and the whole town would come to our house to get pumpkins! However, this year we only got 1 from them plus a miniature pumpkin! I'm going to have my mom read this so she knows what she's supposed to do next year! (She can't let her brother outdo her!)

So Cute! There is nothing more precious than a daddy-daughter relationship. That is awesome about your Dad's prize winning pumpkins too. Way to go Uncle Bob!

Someday...someday I will be a master gardener like Uncle Bob. Until then, I will be content with my green grass. It's better than yellow grass. Love the pumpkins!
