a pumpkin patch, and some photos

So, this post is a little late coming, but I've been busy.

One of the things I love about California is that anything you need, food wise, is grown locally. This includes pumpkins. So, this year the boys had the pleasure of going to a real live pumpkin patch and picking their very own pumpkin. It was so much fun.












We made a deal before we got there, that whoever got the biggest pumpkin, was in charge of hauling the wheel barrow around. Oh, and also, we weren't allowed to get a pumpkin we couldn't carry ourselves.






























So, we searched and searched for our perfect carving pumpkin.












And, finally, after many, many "false alarms" we were all happy with our choices.












So, we were all able to go home, happy.

. . . . . Oh, and just in case you were wondering, Bob won "The Biggest Pumpkin" reward.

How fun was that! You are amazing! We used to do that with the kids when they were little and they loved it! They still remember.
