This week we are going back to get our Pumpkins.

Okay. I am going to reply to everyone one at a time thorughout the day to boost this thread count.

The corn box is much better than a sand box. There were only three kernels on the floor of the bathroom when the kids disrobed before bathtime. Think about the sand that would have been all over the house. Next summer, our sand (which the cats think is a giant litter box ) is being replaced by corn!

I lived in Newport, RI for years and loved going out to Foster and that whole western RI area. Bet you have some punkin patches that would make Martha Stewart cream her corn!

Thanks Moo! My Dh is a looker, but more importantly, a really really nice guy, and a feminist! Plus he is a great dad, and helps alot with the housework....AND he never notices when women flirt with him...Totally oblivious....Now get thee to a punkin patch!

Horsey!

I loved the pictures of all your family. They are all gorgeous as are you!

We too do not have a "real" pumpkin patch. I take our pre-school every year to a church that has pumpkins trucked in. They love it and don't know any different so it's all good!

(I also would rather purchase pumpkins at wal-mart! Much cheaper and they look just as good!)

Awww thank you! Yep it is a great time of year.....And you read my lake trippie too? Gosh....

I am trying to decide about whether to do my family trip in August first or the girls' meet from last week. I am thinking chronological, but I am tempted to do last week's first..... I need to decide and get crackin'! I failed to take notes either time!

If only spring followed fall, huh?

Thank you oh beautious one! Yes, the orbs are cheaper at walmart, but we have to keep that farmstand in business for the rest of you all to one day enjoy. And besides, causing psychic trauma to our children was not worth the savings of the walmart pumpkins, and I did not want to have to stop AGAIN! I wanted to go home!

Pigglet too! I sent you an email. Thanks sweet riddler! You are a dear little kirsten.

Just for the record, I do buy some pumpkins at the pumpkin patch. Just not the "honkin" big ones. I do my part, I'm just frugal about it!

Silli said tonight that he thinks I am too much of a wussy to live in Maine. Ha!
Yep, tree farms everywhere, where you can cut down your own. We have even found some sweet ones on our own land....

You my dear are not wussy! Neither am I but the Maine winters are BRUTAL! The southeast period sounds good to me.....

Horsey it is so nice to see your other half. Very cute indeed.

I knew the kids were running to that jumping castle, that's what mine would have done too.

This a great way to celebrate fall, the pics are great.

My little ones are just jumping to go to the pumpkin patch too. We are going on a class trip to the apple orchard next week.

Thanks for sharing your day and family with us.

Still, it's home. . .and gorgeous this time of year. Time for crisp apple cider (warmed at night), fires, and nippy runs in the morning. From now til the holidays is a great, great time of year. Thanks for sharing. . .

You sound like you should have written for J. Peterman on Seinfeld. Do you sound like him? Lovely imagery Dog.... Someone told me we should move to Virginia because it is sort of like Maine except warmer. True, but don't you have more rednecks?

Thanks for stopping by the punkin patch!

Gorgeous family, thanks for sharing your pics!
It looks like you had a real, lifetime memory day!

I won't be posting our family pics--DH needs to be bribed into shaving on the weekends, DS17 is fond of wearing blown out jeans or a skirt(kilt!) & I am, shall we say, a victim of my physique!

Yep, I saw the tag, only after I saw your post!

Kerri Sue....I bet you get huge pumpkins over there! Foliage, not so much! Thanks for visiting the punkin patch!
