Last week our family visited a local pumpkin patch. I’m amazed at how much there is to do at a pumpkin patch now. I remember going as a kid and there were normally animals and pumpkins and that was about it. Now there are slides, and duck races (rubber AND real ducks)! The corn mazes are huge and elaborate. Some scary, some educational. There are corn kernel pits and blow up jump toys. It’s wonderful that people have made pumpkin patches so trendy, they are the greatest thing to happen for local farmers since the novelty of Christmas tree farms.
Here are some pictures from our pumpkin patch adventure this year. Miles and I took turns with the camera so these pictures are a mix of our varying talent.
Happy Friday everyone.
When I was five years old, I told people I was going to be a veterinarian, nurse, teacher, marine biologist, etc…
Little did I know that when I grew up I’d still be juggling career ideas. In fact, most people I know are still asking themselves “What will I be when I grow up?”….
I daydream a lot about what I’ll do/be when the little ones go off to school. Even what I could do while continuing to be a stay-at-home mother.
Here is my list:
Freelance writer (tried it but haven’t made any money).
High school English teacher.
Real Estate Agent.
Psychologist (or family counseling).
I imagine myself in all of these roles, but I quickly talk myself out of all of them. For every career, I have five reasons not to pursue it.
My heart swells over my dream of parenthood coming to fruition. Watching my babies grow and learn is incredibly fulfilling, but in the back of my mind I know that I can do more. I want more. I just can’t decide what that personal “more” is.
What are some of your “grown up” dreams?
Hi ladies and gents,
I hope everyone is falling cozily into the season. I’m getting tons of baby snuggles and toddler kisses… as well as meltdowns and projectile vomit. All par for the course right?
Anyway I was going through pictures and found these photos from Miles’ “dude” weekend. Miles and all of his close friends went to Hood Canal a few weekends ago. Even though it was “guys weekend” it was all very tame (So I’ve been told). So the pictures are all “G” rated. 🙂
*Hi honey I hope you don’t mind me sharing*.
I love the PNW and sharing the beauty that surrounds us.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
