So, I'm not much of a decorator. I mean, I love seeing other people's decorations, and I really love decorating for Christmas but that's about it. Minus Fall. I love everything about Fall...the leaves, pumpkins, smells, colors, you name it. So, when it's time to go to the pumpkin patch to pick out a few (or a few too many as Jeremy would say) pumpkins, it's the highlight of our week!
Yesterday, off we went! It's about an hour away, and I've talked about it before, but it's a little boy's Heaven of a pumpkin patch. You either get a Gator or a wagon, your own set of clippers and the ability to pick whatever pumpkin(s) you want!
Mom, the kids and I loaded up in a Gator to get the first round of the big pumpkins...a few for carving for Halloween.
Peter was in charge of the clippers at that point and took his job very seriously. Carter would yell from yards away, "I've got a beauty right here, Peter" and Peter would hurry on his way to clip it off the vine.
Sophie crawled to a few she liked and waited until we came to get them.
Then, we'd drive a little farther into the patch for extra variety, and Sophie enjoyed her post in the cab.
As we finished up, we tried to grab a photo on the hay bales, and well, you can take a look at the way that worked for us...
Our house now looks like a pumpkin patch. I never know when to stop, haha! But, it's safe to say we're ready for the season!
