Time ticks by and I can remember well the fun we've had with each of our children at various pumpkin patches over the years. It seems a rite of passage each fall to choose a special pumpkin and experience farm life for a day.
Life is busy and sometimes it's hard to take time out for fun. Honestly, we had to make ourselves go on Sunday, but I'm glad we did. Next year my girls may not be as enthusiastic about petting farm animals and riding in a wagon, but this year they're still young enough to ride a pony and get excited to carve their pumpkins. These are the things I'll someday miss in my normal everyday life.
