"Punkin" Patch

Warm. Pleasant. Fall. Day....no coats needed. A perfect day for a visit to the annual pumpkin patch. 
Little ones, as well as grown-ups (self included) have fun selecting their favorite pumpkins for carving, painting, displaying, or putting on the front porch. (self)

So many to choose from!

Grills are fired up and the smell of something delicious cooking fills the air. The Fall breeze blows it our way.....yummm....

This is the section for the "itty bitty" pumpkins. So tiny, so sweet, Perfect for little hands to grab. Our granddaughter grabbed hers!

What's that old saying?---"everybody and their dog" was there? LOL
Churches all over the nation had their annual "trunk or treat" events this weekend, giving children a safe and fun alternative to going door to door trick or treating.
Colorful displays all over as people park, open their trunks, and start to decorate. Many different fun and unique themes!

Cant you just SEE IT?----these young boys insisted to Mom/Dad "I am way too OLD for trick or treating, honest, I just want to 'hang out' this year".  And be cool. And walk around. And check out the pretty girls. And laugh at the little kids. And try to act grown up. And, ooooops..........hey if we don't trick or treat, we can't collect CANDY. Dang......didn't even think of THAT. Darn! LOL 

Neat old car on display!

With a very unique driver ready to go!

I just love those white pumpkins!

Pup proudly showing off it's costume!

Lots of princesses, fairies, mermaids, firemen, pirates, Elsas and Annas-- proceeding trunk to trunk in the quest for candy.


  1. A great post, the festival and pumpkin patches are fun to visit. I like the carved pumpkins, kiddies in their costumes and the cute puppy dog. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

  2. Wow they go all out there. It looks like a lot of fun. - We haven't visited the patch yet this year and need to this week as Halloween is almost here.

  3. You never get too old to go to the pumpkin patch! Now what should I dress up as this year.....maybe a Princess? Will you dress up with me? heehee! Hugs, Diane

  4. Wow..those pumpkins were really expensive! It's nice that they do that for the children...but..it sort of takes the thrill out of the whole thing. Had I little ones today..I would go with them and only allow them to visit people in the neighborhood that we know....but then that would cut it down for sure.
    Makes me sad that it's all changed so much and that parents have to be on their guard to such a point, but ..it is what it is. :) I STILL have not bought any fresh pumpkins. shoot!
