These last couple of years we have started a tradition of going to Bushue's Pumpkin Patch with the McNutt's. We happily continued that tradition this year. We had beautiful weather. It was dry and warm. We started the fun in the parking lot when the boys were racing with wagons.
Then we took a hay ride out to the pumpkin patch to pick out our pumpkins. The kids were so excited, they were having a hard time holding still for our pictures.
After very little searching, this is what we ended up with. Blayne picked out a bigger pumpkin. I picked out a cool dark green pumpkin. the girls were taken by the red squash, I had to convince them to pick out an actual pumpkin. It got easier after I explained that they couldn't actually carve the squash.
We waited to carve our pumpkins until family night. So with Grandma and Grandpa Yates help we successfully carved three of the four. Blayne's is still on the kitchen table, cleaned but uncarved. Victoria chose to do a vampire, Gavin did two ghosts, and Maddy and I did a single ghost. The kids went and gathered some fun fall leaves to make our display more colorful.
I would definitely say it was a successful pumpkin patching trip this year. Now I just have to finish Halloween and trick-or-treating preparations.
Here's to a safe and Happy Halloween fron the Yates!!!
