For some reason, I thought the Pumpkin Patch was suppose to be a Fun place to go.....A place of adventure for the
kids.......and for family.
This past Friday, I had planned a very special day for my precious granddaughters..
I had planned a special "Shug and granddaughter day" out!
We woke up.....had breakfast.....spent a couple of hours rolling our hair and getting all dolled up....before heading out the door to go to the Pumpkin Patch....and to take pictures!!
This was not our local Pumpkin Patch. Oh no, we had to drive about 20 miles to get to the magical place we were so
anticipating to bring us a day of total FUN!
As we pulled up...the girls became very excited. They could see the big green tractor, pulling a trailer that was lined with hay bales. (The same tractor that was suppose to taking us out to the pumpkin patch)
As I parked the car, both girls could hardly wait to get out. We made our way over to the entrance gate, paid our money ($21.00 to be exact) and was placing the bright green bands on our wrist, when I heard a
lady ask: "Now, what school are y'all from?"
I told her that we were not with a school, and that we came by ourselves. The lady then proceeded to tell me that they had made some changes and that individuals could now visit the Pumpkin Patch (only) on Saturdays and Sundays.
She said: "Y'all can just come back tomorrow." I don't think she ever looked down at those sad little faces on my two darlings.
this was not good....I had two sad little girls standing there, looking up at me....and there was no way that we could come back "Tomorrow" .....which was today! So what was I going to do?
At this point, I had to do some mighty quick thinking.....
I told the girls we could go eat...wherever they wanted to go and then I would take them to the Children's Park.....
Yes, they chose Pizza!!
They ended up having a great time and we all three enjoyed spending a fabulous day together....
