The Pursuit of a Perfect Pumpkin
Last night for FHE we decided to take the kids to this pumpkin patch that I've driven by a few times. The place is absolutely HUGE so I knew that without a doubt we'd find the perfect pumpkins to bring home.
Maddison...the ever studious student set forth estimating how many pumpkins were in the patch, rather than looking for the prized pick.
JM was just as happy as could be to be the ever wandering free spirit that he is amongst the field of orange.
Aaron, Tess and Sarah set right to work...finding the perfect pumpkin. Aaron the funny nut found a "butt pumpkin". I think I'll even go and take a photo of it. It's very unique...for sure!
Now I just want to know when on earth it started getting dark so early. I was really looking forward to getting some fun shots in the pumpkin fields, but nope.....daylight was all but gone when we got there at 6:45.
Oh well....I guess I'll just have to take them back!
After that we came home and finished up our treats to "BOO" some of our neighbors. The kids got the biggest kick out of being able to go doorbell ditching and have it be okay!
BTW - Becky and Beth...I haven't forgotten your RAKS. I just need to get my hiney to the post office. We are NOT very good friends.
