Family Memories at the Pumpkin Patch.
It was quite a day as I remember, as we piled up in the car filled with passengers to pick out pumpkins. More cousins, aunts and uncles followed in their own cars and we all met up at Wemple’s Pumpkin Patch. The two grandmas on scene disappeared into the quaint country store, returning with a treat for everyone and plenty of other fun stuff for themselves. Moms soon discovered the treasures of the Wemple’s Country Store too as dads took over outside. Scents of the season filled the air as cousins soon piled up in the red wagons provided to search for the perfect pumpkins. Moms, dads, grandmas and grandpa followed along as excited children ran from one pumpkin to another. When everyone had their choice in hand, we returned for more fun.
Everyone ran through the hay maze before enjoying lunch from the snack shop. Little ones lingered near the animals while the boys made good use of time pretending and riding on tractor seats. We soon all boarded the wagon lined with hay and rode around the property. Stunning country scenes laid the backdrop for our fun filled day. We all came home with pumpkins, gourds and even cornstalks. That just made for more fun the next day as we decorated for fall.
Wemple’s Pumpkin Patch in Milford is open everyday in October. It is a great family outing. You can
