A Most Sincere Pumpkin Patch

Gwen watches It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, or asks us to read the book to her every five seconds (or so it seems)—hence the title of this post.

Anyway, the other night we went to a pumpkin patch. Even though we already have some pumpkins growing in our backyard, we wanted to have a pumpkin patch experience. This place even had a “petting zoo” where a few random animals were hanging out in cages, eager to bite little fingers that found their way through the fence. There was a llama, some goats, some donkeys and a wallaby. Yes, you read that right. A wallaby.

The best thing about the wallaby was that when it was closing time, the wallaby’s owner came to pick it up, and this wallaby rode shotgun back to it’s home. I’m not joking. In this car (some kind of four-door sedan) there was a little girl and a Great Dane in the back seat, the owner was driving, and the wallaby rode up front. I have to say it was one of the strangest and most awesome things I’ve ever seen.

There was a gorgeous sunset that evening too. I wasn’t able to capture it. There are still a lot of things I need to learn about photography!

    I just love your girls…. so freaking cute. Seriously.

    Inez’s pumpkin is kinda freaking me out though… but good for her for picking one with warts. She didn’t want it to be left out.

    Now I will go google “wallaby. ” I’m thinking kangaroo type animal? That’s so funny!

    I can’t ever seem to capture the sunset just right either?
