Hangin' at the pumpkin farm

So I'm sitting at a picnic table at Bishop's Pumpkin Farm. It's a beautiful fall day and Tucker and his 3 friends are enjoying all that Bishop's has to offer. At almost 13, he and his friends wanted some freedom, so I told them I'd plant myself with the laptop and some good books, and I would be content as they have fun here at the farm. Thanks to the magic of cell phones, I can check in with them and let them know where I am, and we're going to have lunch all together, which will be fun.

I started taking the kids to Bishop's when Austin was just 1 year old, and it was an annual tradition until just the last few years when the kids were of the "I can take it or leave it" mindset. But when you bring friends along, it's a whole new thing. Bishop's makes the BEST pumpkin bread and we will be leaving with lots of it! Perhaps that can be my 55 mile celebration treat.

We love that place and have gone since preschool (for ashley). You can take the kids anywhere as long as a friend can come too ;)

How fun! We have a pumpkin farm near us too - we'll have to make time to get there this season.
