Apples and Pumpkins

I debated with myself over whether this post is really about a project or not.  In the end, I decided that it was a project for me to pack up and transport four kids to any location or event, so even if the event itself wasn't a project, it still counted.

One of our annual traditions is a trip to the pumpkin patch.  We always go to the same place: a semi-rural home whose owners grow pumpkins in a small field behind their house and fill the front yard with their yield.
Each kid gets to pick a pumpkin based on the dollar amount that corresponds to their age.  That way we inspect the entire place, but the individual choices and meltdowns are contained to much smaller areas!
I "helped" Cam pick out his - I wanted at least one pumpkin that wasn't the traditional pumpkin color.  Somehow I doubt I'll be able to get away with that next year.
I got my annual workout loading all that orangeness into the back of the van.
 As if pumpkins weren't enough fall bounty, we had to go apple picking for the second time.  
 This time we visited Auntie Margo's house.  As an added bonus we got to visit the newest cousin.  No pictures though, because she was napping for most of the time we were there.
Stay tuned for future posts on what we have been doing with those pumpkins and apples!

Happy picking, everyone!

Very cute!!! I'll have to remember that place for next year, my girls felt sad this year that we didn't go pick pumpkins. I thought our 100lb'er on the porch was good enough. 'Parently not. Ah well. Your kids and pumpkins were cute so I 'spose I'll hafta go next year too.
