Pumpkin Patch

We stopped in Frankfort, the Kentucky capital, where we almost did not get a room. It was the U of K homecoming. But we did get a nice room finally and hunkered in to watch the VP debate. The next morning we checked out downtown before heading north. The most interesting place was The Woolery. A beautiful store in a beautiful building. Here I saw the most drop spindles in one place you can imagine! They were gorgeous.

Then it was on to see the grands! It was a most perfect day to visit the Pumpkin Patch with them. I had never done this as pumpkin patches weren't so popular when I was rearing their dad. Oh, but this was fun! To see these little guys meet the many...and we could feed them! Nothing, I mean nothing, sounds as joyous as the two year old when the cow's tongue licked his palm for the first time!

Then we all got to take a hay wagon ride to the patch to choose pumpkins. The sun was warm, the wagon rocked pleasantly. I could have ridden all day!
