504 Main by Holly Lefevre: I L-O-V-E Pumpkins!

I L-O-V-E Pumpkins!

I do, I really do {L-O-V-E} pumpkins!

 So, I grabbed the family and we went on a little adventure last week...
we get this weird Fall break at our schools and it is a great time to travel! So we headed off to that magical place where all busy parents go to relax...Disneyland!
I'll share some {cough, cough} highlights of the trip soon...so...do yo want the "Happiest Story on Earth" or the truth. I cannot decide!

While I am recuperating from family fun time, I took the kiddos to the pumpkin patch at Earthbound Farms today...we go a few times every Fall. We love the scenery, the pumpkins, the corn maize...the organic ice cream!
While I am pullng life back together,
I thought I'd share my love of pumpkins with you!

{There is still time to enter the Makia Creations Giveaway...
see the link at the bottom of this post}
I just cannot get enough of pumpkins.
I do not know why...
Maybe I like pumpkins because they are not perfect.
They are funny looking and funny shaped,
and they bask in the glow of the sun without a care.
Some have warts and scars, but who cares...they have personality.
I have always liked pumpkins..
maybe because I remember that carving the
Halloween pumpkin was something we always did with Dad.

But, I think I {heart} pumpkins because
I {heart} just about everything that makes my kids happy. (except Pokemon!)
This city girl had no idea there were so many kinds of pumpkins...
until she moved to the "country."
(OK, it is not the country but it is not L.A.!)
 Of course, I love to eat pumpkins too.

Some yummy pumpkin recipes are headed your way!
Hug a pumpkin today!

  4. Ah, a fellow kindred pumpkin soul! I love them too, and agree that there's just *something* about them.

    I love those pumpkin totem poles. That's really neat!

    And I'm sure the Disland Trip wasn't THAT bad, was it? Just compare it to that camping trip you took years ago and recently (re)blogged about. That'll make you feel better. Grin.

  5. Hi Holly! I love this post and I love me some pumpkins! You can just sit a pumpkin anywhere in your home *inside or out* and it's like a little fall magic happens! Pumpkins do that;0)
    I can't wait to hear about Disneyland!! Thanks for sharing.

  7. I love the finale of this post - "Hug a pumpkin today!" - you are too funny Holly! I need to take my kids to a pumpkin patch...I am ashamed to admit I bought pumpkins at the grocery store - they were so cheap! But nothing beats a trip to the farm in the fall.

  8. I love pumpkins, too! We're headed to the apple orchard and pumpkin patch this weekend, I can't wait!

    I'm "tickled pink" that you want to use my Tolerant post as part of your next Tickled Pink feature! By all means, please do!

  9. Looks like a great family venture. There was some interesting looking pumpkins I would say:)

  10. Ditto! One of my secret desires in life is to grow pumpkins and sell them in the fall. I've always wanted to. I think that seems like a reasonable achievement.
    HOW did that pumpkin tower stay together? I'd have been terrified to have my kid stand by that thing.

  11. Those pumpkin and gourd towers were pretty awesome! Did you see any bumpy pumpkins? We just saw some that looked like they had a bad case of acne. Bumps all over!

  12. I love the way they have those pumpkins lined up so the kids can run between them down the path!

  17. I am crazy about pumpkins too! We went to a real pumpkin patch last year and the family that runs it took me out in the field and we walked and talked for over an hour. It was a mazing and I will never forget it!

  27. I love pumpkins too! I love to look at them and touch them and cook with them and roast the seeds and eat pumpkin soup and pie and yum. I love this maze and the towers. So pretty.
