30 day writing challenge day 1: The Meaning Behind My Blog Name

Pumpkin’s Patch…when I was little I wanted to plant some pumpkin seeds.  My dad showed me how to plant them. I can’t remember if pumpkins actually grew where we planted them, but the memory stuck. I did have a few pumpkin patches growing up…it was one of my favorite pass times, gardening that is.

My dad also called me his Pumpkin. He is the reason I love pumpkin’s, aside from the fact that my birthday is 5 days before Halloween and I love fall.

Stetson’s 3

Yesterday was my nephew Stetson’s 3rd birthday.  My brother and Stetson met Matthew and I at Explora.  It’s a hands on science museum for kids…and grown-ups too.  We had fun playing in the water, musical instruments, and a bunch of other things.  Stetson particularly enjoyed the reptile exhibit.  There was an aquarium with a turtle, a big fish ( I don’t know the name of) and some goldfish.  Stetson told me the big  fish was a whale.  It was so cute and made me laugh.

When we were finished with Explora, we went to Burger King for lunch.

Someone who inspires me…

 My Grandma.  My grandma passed in 2007 but she always told me that I could do anything I set my mind to. She was an artist and ecoiuraged all of my cousins to find their own talents and was proud of each and every one of us.
