Pumpkin picking time

We decided tonight would be a good night to pick our pumpkins.  We opted to go to the local pumpkin tent to pick our pumpkins this year since Benjamin is only 5 1/2 weeks old!  We like going to the "pumpkin patch" in town because it isn't dusty, there are plenty of pumpkins to choose from, and the kids are too young to know the difference!  Nana, Nina Nina Dia, Grandpa, and Uncle Paul joined us for our adventure!  Caitlin had fun picking out pumpkins and putting them in our wagon, feeding the goats, dancing to the music, and pointing out all the Halloween decorations.  Benjamin just chilled in our arms as we pointed out pumpkins that were his size and many that were bigger than him.  Now that we have our pumpkins it's time to think about how we want to carve them.  Stay tuned for our creative results in a future post!
