Pumpkin Patch

This week our sweet friends invited us to go to the pumpkin patch up in Carnation with them. We had great weather this week and Carnation is beautiful! We had so much fun playing in the teepee, making s'mores, finding our way out of the corn maze and filling up on pumpkin pancakes! On the way back to the car the path was lined with these chestnut trees and chestnuts were ALL OVER. Our friend Jim told us how when he was growing up on the east coast that they would gather them and roast them and that they were delicious. So the kids started gathering them and Collin had a whole bag full! Right before we left the guy working there told us that unfortunately they were not edible, that they were horse chestnuts! LOL... Oh well. Collin came home and just dumped them right on our porch. The squirrels came and got them and they were gone in just a few hours! At least someone can enjoy them.
