We went to the pumpkin patch again this year, only we found a new one to go to. It is the same place we go to pick strawberries and blackberries. We didn't get to go at all last year. We had fun. We got some decent pumpkins and gourds for decorating with. We made 2 scarecrows. We ate pumpkin ice cream. There was a lot more to do but we were tired after making the scarecrows. Do you know how long it takes to stuff them? Well, for 1st timers anyway, it takes a while.
