Family Travels

PUMPKINS, SQUASH, APPLES, GOURDS, AND MUMS

What is fall without that family trip to the pumpkin patch or roadside market where each member picks out their favorite pumpkin? If you haven’t already selected your fall decorations, by all means take the Great River Road in Illinois to the Brussels Ferry, just on the other side of Grafton (free both ways-kids love it), into Calhoun county (where we go to get our peaches each summer) to Odelehr’s Roadside Market. The countryside is gorgeous!

It is truly incredible how many wonderful different varieties of pumpkins and squash God has created. From Cinderella to Orange Smoothie, Jack-Be-Little to Baby Boo, Blue Hubbard to Sugar Loaf, the possibilities for decorations and feasting are endless.

Mums, gourds, ornamental corn, and apples also make wonderful decorations-simple, inexpensive, yet beautiful.

No matter how old our children get, family traditions are still very important, so make certain that you take the time to create these memories.
