Pumpkin Patch!

Last Saturday (after a wonderful day at the zoo and birthday party on Friday), we loaded up and headed out to McLeod Farms to pick our pumpkins! I know lots of people love summertime, and there are parts about it that I love too, but I am ALWAYS ready for the crisp, cool air of October. In fact, Luke gets onto me when I try to put my scarecrows out on the porch too early! But, October truly is here now, so a trip to the pumpkin patch was definitely in order. Luke's parents and brother were still in town from the birthday party, so they came along too, and we all had a great time! The girls' only rule was that the pumpkins they picked couldn't be too big for them to carry themselves!

Anna Kate found the perfect one!

And Caroline fell in love with one too. And to be fair, she was able to pick it up, but it was a little too big for her to carry and walk at the same time, so Daddy gave in and said he would carry it, but that she could get it anyway =) This doesn't bode well for future interactions with our daughters, does it?

One of the best parts of the trip was the hayride to and from the patch. The girls thought it was fantastic and Caroline kept grinning from ear to ear saying, "Really fun! Really fun!"

Oh, and in case you would like to see how the girls have grown over the last few years, here you go!
