Pickin’ Pumpkins

October 20, 2009

There’s a great old pumpkin farm nearby that’s supposed to have hayrides and all sorts of things.  Of course the day we went it was all shut down!  We were still able to play on some parts, like this wonderful old bus.  The kids absolutely loved it! They kept trying to drag me in so that they could drive and I could be a passenger but I don’t believe anyone over 30 lbs is allowed in.  I was lucky to be able to stick my head in the door!

Thinkin’ hard, thinkin’ hard.

This guy might be my favorite portrait of the day.  I rode horses for 10 years and miss it often, especially when I come face to face with a horse, barn, and open fields.  Fun fact: I went to Towson University in part because they had an equestrian team.  Little did I know, it was disbanded the year I enrolled but no one took it out of the activities guide! I was so disappointed.  My life may have been completely different if they had edited that catalog…

We didn’t really end up picking pumpkins.  However, I did go home with a Mexican Hat.

I’ve never seen one of these before, and found it very exciting! I looked them up online when I got home, and apparently they’re a popular type of gourd and have a dozen names including a Turk’s Turban.

Whatever it’s called, it’s going to decorate my apartment until it gets squishy and brown!
