Cows & Pumpkins...what more could a girl ask for?

Friday night Fred & I headed down to MD to visit with his sister & her family. We had such an exciting weekend! Not only was it so fun to spend time with everyone but they had all sorts of fun things planned for us. Knowing about my obsession with cows, Fred's sister Kim found a creamery we could visit. There, we were able to watch the cows being milked and got to feed the calves. I think I might have enjoyed it more than the kids. Definitely more than Fred's brother in law Vince who grew up on a farm and did things like this on a daily basis! But for me, Vince was like Captain Kangaroo. He answered all my silly questions about cows & farm life. It was so cool!!

Next stop was at a pumpkin patch. A real one where the pumpkins were still on the vine! We took a tractor ride out to the field, picked our pumpkins then got a tractor ride back. It was so cool!! Fred was on a search for a white pumpkin but didn't find any he liked. Me, I'll stick with the orange ones!! After that we went out for dinner. I am still impressed by how good Fred's nieces were in the restaurant. You barely knew they were there!!

Sunday morning we got up and went to church and then out to breakfast. After that we packed up and headed home. It was such a great weekend and now that I think of it, the first time I had ever been to MD. What a great first impression...cows & pumpkins that grow on vines!!
