31 Days of Faith, Family, Home and Joy -Day 27 – Pumpkins Galore

31 Oct

I love Fall, and I love the darkness in the morning studying.  I love this verse, and as I read it today I did give thanks for our adult children, their spouses, and our five grandchildren.  Look at those two boys – cousins as we visited the Dallas Arboretum recently.

I love Fall decorating almost as much as I do Christmas decorating.  It’s fun seeing the grandkids walk in and saying, “Nana’s got pumpkins”.

This year we have been to see pumpkins at two places – the Dallas Arboretum and Shady Oaks Pumpkin Patch.   We went to Six Flags and our church carnival.  This was all in three weeks.  My husband told me I should have enough of pumpkins this year.  Honestly, I love them and there are ceramic ones all over the house, and real ones outside with mums.

Pumpkins these days come in all shapes and sizes.

Just look at that pictures and the wonders of those boys and all those different pumpkins as different as you and I!

Pumpkins are no longer just orange.  Just look at all these we saw.  They come in so many colors – white, browns, greens, hints of yellow, orange:

Pumpkins are smooth.  They are bumpy and warty.  The are all sorts of things.  In the picture below the white bumpy ones (light orange) are called peanut pumpkins, and the orange ones behind are called knucklehead pumpkins.

So many different kinds of pumpkins.  So much fun seeing them.

31 Days of Faith, Family, Home and Joy – Day 13 – A Trip to the Dallas Arboretum

14 Oct

IMG_8735.jpeg

We made our first trip with two of our grandsons to the Dallas Arboretum today – the oldest two who are 2 and 4.  It was a warm, muggy October day here in Texas.  It begin to get warm after lunch, the 4 year olds feet were hurting, the 2 year old was wanting to go to Nana’s house for cheese crackers, Nana’s shoulder was hurting from carrying the camera and holding the boys hands.  Not sure about PaPa – he wouldn’t admit it if something were bothering him.

We stopped and rested twice on the way back to the car, and the last stop PaPa grabbed two juices and a water.  The boys slurped the juices down faster than they ever have around us.  It was getting crowded and we were glad we got there when it opened.  My pedometer says we walked four miles over more than three hours, and we didn’t even visit one side of the park – we spent our time in the children’s areas.

It was unseasonably on the warm side – 93 degrees, average is 79 for this time of the year, but changes are coming early in the morning with rain and a drop of twenty degrees.

It’s a North Teas about face, and come Tuesday the low is 49.  Brrrrr!

Look at those pumpkins right in the center – the white ones.  They were really neat – peanut pumpkins.  Looks just like peanuts on them.  I read where the peanuts are excess sugar buildup.
