Today Jeff’s office had its party for the employees. It was at Huber Farm. It was an absolutely beautiful day, so it was a lot of fun to wander around the farm and get pumpkins from the pumpkin patch.
First was lunch (hot dogs, fried chicken, mac and cheese, cole slaw, lemonade, chicken and dumplings, etc.)
Then we found a koi pond, and we fed the fish (and the ducks, geese and swans). These fish are obviously well fed. They were HUGE!
Next we wandered through the Farmer’s Market. We got to check out the different kinds of pumpkins, squash and gourds, not to mention the cool tractor.
Finally we went to the pumpkin patch and checked out all of the pumpkins. The girls had a great time, and we found some excellent pumpkins to decorate, and maybe, if I get ambitious, I might even make a pumpkin pie from scratch. (Not the crust, though.)
Finally we took a hay ride back from the pumpkin patch. (It was actually a wagon behind a tractor, no hay involved.)
It was a wonderful afternoon, and we had a great time. And best of all, the girls came home nice and tired, and went to bed with no fuss. That’s a success by any definition!
