Pickin’ Pumpkins…In The Dark
Tonight Wayne, Charlotte and I headed over to the Sanlando United Methodist Church (Altamonte, Springs) to visit their Pumpkin Patch. We have already been to pick out our pumpkin this year (where we have gone for the last four years, Tuskawilla United Methodist) BUT we needed to stock up for the Pumpkin Carving Party we are having this weekend. Plus Charlotte is obsessed with pumpkins right now so it was fun for her to have more pumpkins to play with. I had heard from some friends that this is the BEST pumpkin patch in Orlando, and they just might be right. The patch is HUGE and includes many different kinds of pumpkins, squash and gourds in all colors and sizes. SMC also does story times right in the patch through the month of October – we’ll need to keep that in mind for next year – standees to take your picture with, a mini barn, kid’s activities and a free tiny pumpkin for Charlotte.
Charlotte had a lot of fun and although it was a little late (and dark, a tiny bit spooky) and she did not want to run around she did help hold some of our choices and had a lot to say about her experience.
