Pumpkin Patch

This past weekend it was Thanksgiving here in our parts.  We walked, played, laughed, ate and cuddled.  It was wonderful.  Yesterday we took a trip to the nearby Pumpkin Patch.  The owners, Mike and Shannon, do a great job of decorating up their farm, complete with scary witches, spiders, skeletons, etc. in the barn.  We took the boys in a wagon out into the field and they picked out their very own pumpkins.

Earlier in the day we had been down to the Puntledge River to see the run of spawning salmon and take a walk through the trails ~

What a beautiful place we live in!  And to top it all off, both my kids and all three grandkids were together for a few hours - first time in two years.  That just about made my heart explode.

So nice to have family together. They are such cute little ones. Glad the visit was fun and you can recover from an exploding heart!!

Awww...having your family all together is super great. I am actually going to be spending Thanksgiving with my sister and mom this year. That hasn't happened in over 10 years!
