How can you tell it’s Fall in Florida?
No, it’s not the weather. And it’s certainly not the foliage. Palm tree fronds are always green.
It’s because you’ll find pumpkin patches pop up in places around town nowhere near any sort of farmland. The same phenomenon (do-do-do do do) happens during November when all of a sudden there are pine and fir trees in parking lots at malls. Weird.
We made our obligatory trek to a pumpkin patch this weekend. We went to the one at Celebration. They had a nice set-up with hay bails and scarecrows and flowers… great photo opportunities! Speaking of photo-ops…I run into Julie taking photos of her cutie-pie kids too! (great minds and all that)
We carved the slightly lopsided pumpkin yesterday morning and roasted the seeds. YUM. We may need to get another pumpkin – the seeds are all gone! Me and the kids LOVE them! Dude, they rock. (they requested some in their lunches today for school) It’s one of the few things that I can cook… really really well.
Here are my two pumpkins:
And I already did a layout with some of the pictures from Saturday. That’s freakin’ amazing. I may not have my kids’ last birthdays completed or the last couple of Christmases… but, by golly (yes, I said golly) I got the pumpkin patch layout done! The best part? I’m totally okay with that. Goooooo me!
It’s all about what inspires me, you know?
