ABC Wednesday is brought to you by the letter P, as in pumpkin patch. We spent the afternoon at Country Farms Pumpkin Patch yesterday, and the kids had a blast going out into the fields to pick their pumpkins. It was very expensive to go into that particular area where you could have a hay ride, a mini train ride, get an apple and other treats and view the displays. So I opted to be photographer and caught them as they went by on the hay ride and then went and shot just about everything I saw - from roosters, bunnies, goats, and piles of fresh vegies in the market area. When we got home, my daughter and son-in-law helped the kids design and carve their pumpkins. They were leaving last night on a vacation/business trip, so wanted to share the experience with the kids before they left. So we now have 5 pumpkins decorating my front porch and the kids just need to put candles inside for Halloween night. Here are some photos of our great day at the pumpkin patch.
plenty of thanks to Mrs. Nesbitt, our perennial leader/creator, and to the popular Roger, our personable administrator. Also, plenty more thanks to the phenomenal team who pop by to give each contributor praiseworthy points of view. See you all next week for the letter Q.

- I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.
