We had a blast at the pumpkin patch yesterday with friends. We loaded up a van full of kids and headed just past Riverton to a beautiful patch with "thousands and thousands of pumpkins"-according to Isa. The kids had so much fun riding in the wheelbarrow, picking out pumpkins, rubbing pumpkins, and jumping around that we could have stayed all afternoon.
We already had our carving pumpkins at home, so it was fun to just choose some pretty varieties-green, white, striped, orange/red. I am such a sucker for color and form; I could have easily bought twice as many!
I have been meaning to post on here something Timothy said this week about our carving pumpkins. Charlotte and I picked the pumpkins out at the grocery store and placed then by the front door, when Timothy saw them later that afternoon he exclaimed excitedly "Mama, tomatoes for Christmas!!!" I have been laughing about that one all week. He was on the right track.
