Family Outing to the Pumpkin Patch

In the midst of 90 degree weather, fall must be nearing, as leaves show hints of color and pumpkins ripen.

This weekend, Case and I joined family, including "Oma" (Case's sister), Aunt, Uncle and the grand kids, exploring the pumpkin patch.
I was entertained watching the little ones' close encounters with sheep and goats. One child, just tall enough to look a sheep right in the eyes, stood with a surprised look on her face, as the sheep took a lick of her lips.
Two teens stood in the middle of a circle coordinating chaos, as little farmers drove John Deer tractors. I found myself grinning as they practiced steering, created grid lock, or distracted, drove into each other.
I enjoyed the day!
