In a well-furnished kitchen there are not only crystal goblets and silver platters, but waste cans and compost buckets---some containers used to serve fine meals, others to take out the garbage.
Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing.
" You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies." Psalm 23:5

Well the weather was a bit rainy off and on all day.
We decided to go anyway and hoped we would get a few breaks.
First there was breakfast with grandpa
The the long ride to the farm...pumpkin patch
Hmmmm....these pumpkins look good.
The fields were very muddy from the rain
so we stuck close to the barns.
Hunter still falls alot ..
he has only been walking for a couple of months

We looked at the animals first
He liked the baby bunny

The llama was a bit more scary
he tried to nip at our shirts

Hunter is not to sure of the baby goat
Grandpa was there for support

Ok grandpa ... what's next?
are these the pumpkins?

hey is kind of high up here.

The sand box filled with corn was fun
a very interesting idea.
There was a big bouncy thing he liked
and some play horses he rode on.

Now time for that pumpkin picking...

Well.. maybe I will play with the puppy first.

The pony ride didn't work out so well.
He liked the pretend ones better.

Too many animals at ones..
they all wanted to eat our shirts and jacket.
Goats will eat anything
Ok grandma ... I want this one

He took a pumpkin home
He will carve it closer to Halloween.
Next year we will find a drier patch to visit.

Oh what beautiful pictures. I love the one you chose for your blog header! Hunter looks like he really loved the bunny. Sorry about the mud but your photos turned out perfectly. What a memorable day and precious photos for the memory book. Hope you enjoy the week.

Love the header! Hunter is growing so fast, and it is special to be able to document so many firsts for him. Actually, it is a blessing to be able , as Grandparents, to be part of so many firsts for him, and you!

You had a wonderful time, obviously. A corn box is a great idea. Your pics are priceless. We are getting ready to take our kid-lings in a couple weeks out to the farm ... they love visiting so we can go places.

Pop over for a visit & join me.

Have a warm snuggly eve. TTFN ~Marydon
