Pumpkin Power!

A couple of Life Groups teamed up to go pumpkin picking after church yesterday. We all took a trip out to Bizi Farm in Vancouver. In case you don't know, pumpkin pickin' ain't what it used to be. Bizi Farm had every kind of farm fun you could imagine. We were kept "busy" all afternoon with the hay bale maze and tower, a petting zoo, a pumpkin sling, a corn maze, and a hay ride out to get our pumpkins.

One of the highlights of the day came when Miles Nelson sank a pumpkin into a barrel from about 30 yards away using a pumpkin sling! He won a cool scarecrow for his efforts.

The quote of the day came from Katrina, the Witkowski's foster daughter. As I fearlessly led our group in the corn maze a little eight year old voice behind me said, "I think Pastor's are good for spiritual advice, but not for getting people out of corn mazes."

Boy did I feel like a turkey!
