Harvest Fun~ Part One

I had a pumpkin, that I baked
I made it into a pumpkin cake.

A few weekends ago, Sugar Bear and I traveled a fair distance to meet Grandma at the Pumpkin Patch. Our hearts full of anticipation, excitement, and charity. This particular Pumpkin Patch gives all proceeds to a camp for children with cancer. Knowing this makes the festivities all the more delightful. To go along with the theme of pumpkins and children, I have elected to share some random children's poetry among the photos in this post.


With so much to see and do, I was a tad surprised that Sugar chose to EAT first. Awwwwww she is a girl after my own heart. She knew EXACTLY what she wanted...and was excited to share her meal with Grandma.


I can't say I blame her, though. A FRITO PIE pretty much ROCKS THE PARTY!


Please let us go pumpkin picking
Understand we LOVE pumpkin picking!
Many people love pumpkin pie and
Pumpkin pie is the best to eat on Halloween because
Kids love to eat pie!
In the fall we love to get our pumpkins and
Night is the best time to carve pumpkins with your friends!

By: Colin N.,Christian R.,Moises S.Thomas W.


Pumpkins are big and round
Usually pumpkins are hard and orange
My, we LOVE
Pumpkin pie! Some
Kinds of pumpkins are yellow
It is fun to go pumpkin picking
No pumpkin's shape is alike.

By: Matthew B.,Amanda R,Daniel R., Katelyn R


Pumpkin, Pumpkin in the air,
Pumpkin, Pumpkin in my hair.


Pumpkins are spooky when you carve them. Put them
Under your bed until Halloween night
My pumpkin looks so scary! We like
Kick a pumpkin and make a mess
It's better to pick pumpkins and decorate them with
Noses that are BIG!

By: Ashley A., John D., Craig N., Aidan P.,Dana T.

After adequately lapping up every last morsel of Frito Pie, Sugar Bear set her sights on the Pumpkin Ferris Wheel. Last year, I had not allowed her to participate in this attraction, as adults are not allowed. This year, I cautiously stepped out of my comfort zone, and watched my girl find her wings.



Ten pumpkins sitting on the fence,
Five fell down and when kaplence!



Pumpkin, Wumpkin, Bumpkin,
I have a pumpkin.
I saw a pumpkin that bumped a log.
I saw a pumpkin and so did the dog.
It was a silly old pumpkin.

I found two pumpkins in a pumpkin patch
And guess what, they both match!

Grandma got the overly coveted honor of riding the train with the Sugar. It was interesting to watch, and realize that in their own little ways they were indulging each other. I'm quite certain, each thought they were giving the other a special treat.


The pumpkin rolled down a hill.
"Oh my!" he said, "What a thrill!"
It rolled too fast,
And then it crashed.
Then it got ill.

I can’t lie.
I can’t make a pumpkin pie!


(This is a little girl after my own heart)
I like pumpkin pie.
It tastes like pumpkin.
Pumpkin pie is good.
I like pumpkin pie.


And this last poem....might be my favorite. These kids are just toooooo cute.

There once was a lady who swallowed a pumpkin seed.
A few days later her tummy grew bigger and bigger 'til she couldn't
She went to the doctor, the doctor said,
"I do not know what is wrong with you."
The lady went home to wonder why.
The pumpkin came out
And she had pumpkin pie.

By Cassandra


Good Food, twirling pumpkins, and a fabulous train ride with Grandma....what more could a Sugar Bear ask for? You'll just have to come back in a few days to find out!

Those quotes are adorable. And now I want some frito pie!! :)

Mary Ellen said...

Awww...look at those cute pigtails! Gotta love the frito pie LOL! What great pics!

You I'd never heard of frito pie until I moved to New Mexico. I thought it was a New Mexico thing for the longest time. It's nice to see other states eat it too. :)

Great pictures. I love the pumpkin ride. It looks a bit like she's getting into Cinderella's fairy tale coach.

that was lovely and the poems were adorable. I love the thought that Sugar and Grandma both thought they were giving each other a treat. Looks like a fab day hon. :D

What a delightful day! CUTE poems!

tommie said...

They look like they had so much fun!

Is that adorable outfit what you have been busy sewing?

Christina said...

That looks like a great faire! I love Sugar and Grandma's matching jackets. I'm betting Sugar's cute outfit is your handiwork.

Are the poems from your students??

What fun! I think yellow looks amazing on her. She did great on the ferris wheel. The Bean wouldn't want to get off if I let her on one like that. You should have heard the fit trying to get her off the kiddie train at the mall where my parents live last Christmas.

AnnD said...

I loved that! What a blast she was having!
