Pumpkin Gathering, Third annual
Hard to find, you drive through a residential area then up a narrow road and suddenly there it is .
Trinity Tree Farm, Pumpkin Patch
This year, friends from Eastern Washington are joining us.
Colorful wheel barrels are ready for the young set.
So we all head to the large field of pumpkins.
The ride is great fun.
Racing around the field is great fun.
but sadly they escaped the camera
The bouncy houses are great fun.
Eating a picnic lunch is great fun.
Train ride for little people
Hay ride for all.
Just as the rain drops are starting to fall it is time to say goodbye.
One more highlight, on the drive home.
No picture, so use your mind's eye..
A long convoy. large open jeeps packed full of gear
Sitting right up next to the tail gate. two or three soldiers.
These men are in full camouflage ... even their heads
Jeep after Jeep.
Yes, it is raining pretty hard now.
I wave again.
I get a HUGE TWO ARM WAVE.
I am smiling
Smiling long past the convoy.
Wishing I had pulled out my camera.
But the picture remains in my mind
Thankful for those brave men.
Thankful to live in America.
God bless America, please.
