Family Gourd Day

Today our family got together to celebrate "Family Gourd Day".

Don't know if that's what you would call it or not, but it's what I'm going to call it.

This time of year the family jumps into the Coach and we all go to the Pumpkin Patch for everyone to pick out a pumpkin. But this year, with not being employed for the last 6 weeks, and the Coach in the repair shop getting some body work done, Wilma came up with another plan.

When we went to Shipshewana, Indiana last weekend, she purchased a number of weird looking gourds. She then had the plan of putting a number on the bottom of each of them. Have the grand kids pull a number out of a cup and what ever number they picked would be their gourd to keep.

I didn't think it would be much fun for the grand kids. But as the day progressed it was just perfect. And best of all....it didn't cost us an arm and a leg for those over priced pumpkins!

It turned out to be a perfect day! Weather sunny and in the mid 70's. Pizza for lunch with Apple Cider, donuts, Carmel apples, and pop corn popped right off the cob!

What a wonderful time we all had. Another great adventure in our lives.

Come back again, until then be safe and God Bless.
