Pumpkins, Pumpkins Everywhere

Fall is my favorite time of year. And Fall just wouldn't be the same without a visit to a local farm to pick out pumpkins, let the children play and pet the farm animals, and, of course, eat funnel cakes and drink hot apple cider on a chilly day.
 
 
There are pumpkins in a wagon
 
And pumpkins on the ground
 
 
Tiny pumpkins sitting in rows
 
 
Pumpkins in the stands, waiting to be picked
 
 
There are pumpkins white as snow
 
 
And some gourds not quite so pretty
 
 
Pumpkins named "Cinderella" (after midnight?)
 
And pink pumpkins shaped like a ribbon
 
 
There are even "Turkish Turban" pumpkins 
 
 
There are pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere!
 
 
 
We came home to bake cupcakes
 
 
and collected leaves to make leaf rubbings.
 
 
It was a perfect Fall day!

Oh, my. Beautiful pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere! I grew some this year, they never got big enough to eat because of our drought. I picked them all and put them here and there on the porch and in the yard.

Pictures

Growing up in my era we didn't take a lot of pictures. Of course, there were the school pictures, which I dreaded, and Mom rarely bought...
