This year we, again, went to Neltner’s Farm & Greenhouses, our favorite pumpkin patch.
Sophie loved the small animals …
especially the chickens on the goat.
We rode the horse-drawn wagon up the dirt road to the pumpkin patch.
Sophie was suddenly surrounded by her favorite thing to point on people’s porches during our walks—pumpkins!
We posed for pictures and picked three pumpkins.
On our way back to the barn we saw draft horses plowing a field.
Here Sophie’s throwing the three small gourds she picked out, too. She loves those gourds and plays with them daily. (I, in turn, try my best to keep them away from Tucker, who is anxiously waiting for a moment when no one is looking so he can eat them.)
“I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.” —Henry David Thoreau
