Sharing The Pumpkin Patch Experience

Garren, Gracie and I really wanted to share Pumpkin Patch fun with Mamaw & Papaw while they were here to visit this fall. The leaves are beautiful, and the farm that hosts the Pumpkin Patch has a gorgeous view of apple trees and fall leaves and a endless mountain range, not to mention the good food, neat animals and row of tractors ready for a pretend plow.

Unfortunately...it is really cold out there! The wind is blowing its hardest and coldest today, and the over night and early morning rain made everything damp and dreary. We did make a stop at the Pumpkin Patch. We got a small bag for apples and we petted the horsey--but that was about it. We were out of the car, and back in, in about 30 minutes at most.

Gracie is down for a nap now, and mamaw, papaw & Garren are braving the mall in Winchester looking for Gracie a new winter coat. Poor Gracie just couldn't keep up today. She woke up very early this morning with a stuffy nose. She seems okay, and doesn't have a fever, but she didn't get much sleep last night so we had to call it quits early. Hopefully she will feel better this afternoon so we can take Mamaw & Papaw with us to a trunk-or-treat evening at our neighbor's church. They will have plenty of games, and of course lots of candy. I think we will all enjoy watching a dressed up Gracie have a good time. I think I will put her in the lion costume for tonight it is so cold and that costume is much warmer. We will save the puppy for trick-or-treating in Lynchburg on Tuesday.

I have put more pictures in this weekend's folder. Click here to see all the fun Gracie is having with her mamaw & papaw.
