Tails from the Pumpkin Patch

No ... you read that right:    T - A - I - L - S.

One of my concerns about starting a blog was that I was ... well 
... somewhat older than the average blogger.  
My babies had all grown up.  I was a working mom,
 a soccer mom ... well actually just years and years of tennis lessons ...
 and a renovation mom like many of you are.  

So what do you do to fill the void of ... pictures with Santa ... 
Easter egg hunts ... and visits to Disneyland
... after your kids are gone?

You have more children!

Meet my youngest son ... Blake ... my Yorkie
... on the way to the Pumpkin Patch!
Blake, of course,  is adopted.  I call him my empty nest child 
and we go everywhere together.

We had to purchase pumpkins for an event my parents
 were attending at their church.
  They needed 25 small ones to be used as centerpieces ... so 
off to the pumpkin patch we went.

Don't you love pictures of the little ones riding in wagons?  That's Blake's dad pulling the wagon in the lovely purple shirt ... otherwise known as my husband Julio.  

No kid likes to go to the Pumpkin Patch alone, so Blake invited his cousin, Greta.  They're great friends and spend hours chatting online.  Greta's was a bit camera shy ... or maybe Blake was just being a camera hog.

Well our wagon was filled quickly ... luckily Blake agreed to stay put and guard the pumpkins we selected. 

A good time was had by all.  Until next year.

On Monday ... maybe I'll dig into the vault and 
dig up some pictures of ...
Halloween's Past.  
I might even conjure up some pictures of me.

Till then ... I'll be dressing up as a Crazed Blogger this year ... what are you guys wearing?

I stumbled across your blog.

I have to say, I am jealous of your dog! I wanted a little guy like that! I ended up getting a mutt from the humane society though. He is also a new addition to my family.

Are you dressing your dog up for halloween?
