The Perfect Pumpkin...


It's a sad day when all of your kids dont jump at the chance to pick the perfect family pumpkin. Guess Madison will be our last pumpkin hunter. I shall never grow too old to search for that perfect round fall delight! Thank you Madison for keeping us forever young!

I must add that I had as much fun as she did. Even if we did miss the pony rides... cause Momma got the time wrong, ugh!

Forever young... even if we are the only ones in this house to believe it.

Madison searched...

and searched....

She did find her perfect pumpkin. Daddy helped bring it to the car.... great day indeed~

  1. I love going to the pumpkin patch and getting that perfect pumpkin, too. This year I must have been distracted because my one lonely pumpkin is very oddly shaped.

    I did a variation of your spooky tree and posted on my blog today. It still needs a bird - where did you find yours? Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. We are going to the pumpkin patch this upcoming weekend. My son (who will be 18 this weekend) is not overwhelmed with this idea, but he's going! LOL. Gosh dang it, we're doing this as a family and we're all going to be HAPPY about it. LOL. (Do you think I have a problem letting go?) LOL.
    It is a thrill when you find the perfect one, isn't it?

  4. Susie, I did a post on this subject. My kids are 19 and 16. They won't do the whole pumpkin patch thing with me anymore. They will go around town picking out the perfect ones! It stays fun as they age just in different ways. :) Believe me though, I miss the pumpkin patch days.

  6. Those are such fun times and I remember them well. I sure miss my little ones, this past Sunday I saw a friend and her question was "How are You doing?" and my response was I'm missing my kids today. Cherish every moment. Jackie

  10. Soon, very soon, they will all want to come back and pick the perfect pumpkin again! I think that is kind of how it works. We grow up a little and then cherish all the memories we made as a family.

  18. My two older kids think I am horrible for dragging them to the pumpkin patch but my youngest still loves it. I bribe them with the fresh roasted peanuts and extra large cokes in a bottle that they serve at our farmers market/patch. Works everytime. I know that someday when they have kids of their own they will appreciate our times at the patch but....I still miss the years that I pushed them in their strollers and sat my chubby babies on a bale of hay for a photo! Time does fly and very fast I might add. Madison picked a great one! Smiles and Hugs, Paula

  21. I miss those days! The good news is that after all the pumpkin hunters leave home, if you are patient, new little hunters come along! I can't wait to go to the patch with my grandchildren. Happy Fall! I loved this post. sigh. winking away a few tears.

  26. My favorite childhood memories are of going to the pumpkin patch with my mom every year. Madison will remmber these times forever.

    And if she's anything like me, she'll be searching for her perfect pumpkin when she's in her twenties too!

  34. That looks like so much fun. A couple of years ago we talked Legare (then 20) into going with us to the Corn Maze. He lasted about 30 minutes which was actually longer than I expected!!

  45. You are lucky you even have a pumpkin patch to go to. Our closed a couple years ago so now we have to get our pumpkins from Wal-Mart. Just not the same as going to a pumpkin patch. :(
