...Linus knows what he's doing."
- It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. 1966
(Wow, it's hard to believe that came out 43 years ago)

This weekend I did one of the things I love to do most in this world...go to a pumpkin patch! Hayrides and pumpkins and cider, oh my! Now, I have to admit, one of my favorite pumpkin patches of all time will always be Rombach's Farm in St. Louis, MO (hubby, I will take you there one day) but Oregon does have quite a few impressive ones with my favorite so far being The Plumper Pumpkin Patch. Their pumpkins are amazing (they truly are "plumper") and the view is beyond spectacular. So, I highly recommend that everyone take some time out to visit their own favorite pumpkin patch this season.

On a side note, when I chose the pics for this post I was inspired by vintage pumpkin photos. If you look real close the second and third one almost seem to tell a story...in the second photo it appears the scarecrow could quite possibly be passed out and the third one looks like what he might see after he hit that bottle one too many times. Don't you just love my warm and fuzzy interpretation of artistic pumpkin photos? Hmmm, maybe it's all the hard cider I've been drinking. ;)

Anyway, I hope everyone had a great weekend!
