A visit to the pumpkin patch!

It is definitely Fall, because we are at Gust Farms, a beautiful working farm in Michigan just beyond the Ohio border. It takes only 15 minutes to get here.  Elissa is with grandson Philip, my great grandson.  Michelle is with Josh, Kyle and baby Chase.  It's sunny and cool, almost cold, so we bundle up, put on hats and gloves and scarves.  We walk the farm, check out the animals, hold the rabbits, pick out pumpkins, have donuts and warm cider.  Chase munches with joy on the best cookie he ever had!  The kids race from one thing to another, go on a hayride, play in the pumpkin patch, around and on and about the pumpkins.  Josh, Kyle, Chase and Philip. Our boys, having a great time!  It brings such joy to our hearts.

Michelle has taken her kids to the farm every year since Alli, Josh and Kyle were little kids.   She likes getting her mums here, and apples, jars of jam and apple butter, hay and gourds for her Halloween decorations and front porch.  She especially loves to see her kids busy, happy and enjoying themselves.  It's such a great family tradition.  I wouldn't miss it for the world!
