This past weekend The Pumpkin Ranch hosted a group of 22, 9 year old girls for a birthday party. I could not get over how much energy they had. I think the zip lines made a dent in their energy level. We have hosted many birthday parties at The Ranch this year but 2 things made this one extra fun for me. First, the mom of the birthday girl was an old friend of mine from my teen years. Yes, I’m in denial about how old that makes me! It was also fun because they gave each girl a painted pumpkin as a party favor. So, I painted up a storm.
