a story amidst a field of pumpkinless pumpkin patches.

so once upon a time a group of youth group leaders and teen girls headed out to a pumpkin patch to pick out pumpkins to carve or to deck out our front porches. upon arriving to the patch, they arrived to a very bare field with oh...5 or so rotten pumpkins. though they were disappointed, everyone found the ordeal quite hilarious and still made a good time by picking from the collection of pumpkins indoors and indulging in some of the best juicy burgers in the county (i had the blue cheese burger - mmm, so good!). the group also discovered several huge piles of straw hay all over the pumpkin-less fields and could not resist diving, jumping and burying themselves in the mounds.

so despite the lack of pumpkins, these ladies still were able to have a hay of a good time! *wink*

much love.
{happy monday, friend.}
