The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown~

First, I would like to thank everyone who left such heartfelt comments yesterday.  It meant the world to me, and it felt great to know that others had my back.  You all are the best!  I have to say that after reading the comments and having some time to think about things, I have no regrets and have put it in the past.  Time to move on.

I had promised pics of our trip to the pumpkin patch, so with out further ado...

My girls thought this sign was hilarious!



Our oldest with her beau.


No, I don't normally sport a bright orange pumpkin on my chest...I realized I had on my volleyball shirt that has the name of the school my daughter attends...so for privacy sake, I will sport a bright orange pumpkin (easy fix).

She survived despite being on crutches!!  (don't let that face fool you...she had a great time)

We had such a good time at the pumpkin patch.  The weather was gorgeous, sunny and a little cool.  The leaves are just starting to turn here, so we will probably make another trip up to the mountains soon to see all the changing colors.

So, you may have noticed dad is not in any of the pictures...he was like a kid in a candy shop, checking out all the pumpkins and such...we couldn't keep up with him.  He'd never been to a huge pumpkin patch like this one! LOL  We ended up with two wheelbarrows full of pumpkins and a basket of mini pumpkins, gourds and indian corn.  Now I have to figure out where they are all going.  Fortunately, some went home with our oldest daughter for her apartment.

Hope everyone is having a great week so far!

We went to a pumpkin patch this past weekend too! It was a lot of fun - I guess pumpkin patches just inherently are. =)

Looks like a wonderful day! I still haven't gotten pumpkins this year. I'm tempted to drag my hubby to a huge outdoor pumpkin patch we have close by! It has a corn maze, big outdoor slide, and all kinds of other fun stuff...it's okay if we go and don't have kids right??

Lauren what a great time for the family.

About yesterdays post. I am so very sorry. You put so much love, time and effort into this! Why are there politics and power hungry people lurking everywhere you turn.

Hold your head high, stand up for your beliefs. That is the best thing we can do at times like this.
