And then we moved!!!! Are there even any pumpkin patches in Arizona? I searched the internet and the closest real one was 5 hours away! Then I came across an old "friend." When I led Young Life back in the day at AJ, we would raise money at a near by farm. It was hard work, dusty, hot...I swore I never wanted to go back. Until...I found out they had a pumpkin festival. Good ole Schnepf Farms. It was still dusty and hot, but this time I did not have to yell at kids to stop drinking all the pop they were supposed to be selling and run around trying not to make Carrie Schnepf mad at us. This time, I got to walk around and enjoy myself and my family.
Henry wanted me to say thanks to his Papa for buying our tickets, thanks Grammy for buying our pumpkins, and thank you Schnepf Farms for helping us start our Pumpkin Patch Family Tradition!
And don't worry Papa and Grammy, I will not tell anyone how you cheated in the corn maze!
