Pumpkin Patch

We went to a local pumpkin patch Sunday afternoon. It wasn't the best one ever, but a couple of the "good" ones are an hour away and we just didn't want to go that far.

Cole and I before heading in.

Posing with the blowup pumpkin.

Our friends (our old TLF neighbors) met us there too. Cole and Tandy took a ride around the patch.

So silly!

Our family pic..too bad Cole wouldn't smile!

The pumpkin Cole picked out.

A close-up of our pumpkin. I was going to dissuade him from getting the ugliest pumpkin in the whole patch, but then I was reminded that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. To him, this was the best pumpkin out there...bumps and all!

It also reminded me that even on days when I feel like this pumpkin (just plain ugly!) that THE KING, MY HEAVENLY FATHER, thinks I am beautiful and created me just the way I am!

The King is enthralled with your beauty; Honor Him for He is your Lord.
Psalm 45:11
