We tried seven stores & I spent a total of $4.25. I found one store, however, with a huge selection of vintage children's books that were on sale for 25 cents apiece. I cannot resist old children's books, they get me in the gotcha.
The day wasn't wasted though, as we love a good day trip & had a wonderful breakfast in a small diner called Gold Street Cafe. It had very friendly (& heavily tattooed) staff & quirky decor. None of the tables or chairs matched & instead of being average restaurant furniture, they all looked like they were purchased at thrift & antique shops. Very quaint & a killer cup of decaf. I had a mushroom & spinach omelet & a bowl of fruit. Chucky had their pork chops with scrambled eggs, fruit & cottage cheese. Everything was very tasty, they accidentally put cheese on my omelet, but in two minutes flat my replacement arrived.
On our way home we enjoyed the rainy weather, listened to my favorite fall playlist & stopped by the pumpkin patch so that I could take pictures & frolic amongst those gorgeous, glowing orbs. I like to daydream about us opening up our own pumpkin patch when we are older, Chucky thinks it's cute & rolls his eyes at me, but I am completely serious.
|Their welcome sign was very sweet & I loved the contrast between its bright fall colors & the sweet pink old-fashioned roses that were climbing up around it.|
|These huge pumpkin displays always make me jealous.|
|My fella's all ready for pumpkin hauling duty.|
|Like these ...|
|& these ...|
|& these lovely bright minis! Though I bet I could have gotten all of these into Yoko's hatchback!|
|Chucky's first choice.|
|Our pumpkin haul for the day ... or so he thought.|
|I fell in love with the shape, color & graceful stem of this tiny darlin'.|
|I can't promise I won't go back once more just to wander.|
