My mother lived in an assisted living home for the last few years of her life. It was VERY expensive but they really looked after the people living there so I thought it was worth it. The best part for me was all the day trips they provided that I was able to join in on. Shawn’s Pumpkin Patch was one of them.
The 95-year-olds and the 65-year-olds (like me) were all able to become kids again.
I went along on as many trips with my mother as time would allow.
So many pumpkins…
My mother is in the red wheelchair.
I really enjoyed all the colors and shapes of the different pumpkins and squash.
It is still emblazoned in my memory. I hope my mother enjoyed it. I certainly did!
Her generation was the last that enjoyed a secure retirement. There is no way I could afford to live in such a wonderful assisted living environment. I have my fingers crossed I can afford a tent…
