Pumpkin Patch Time!

Yesterday we took the kiddos to the pumpkin patch to pick out their pumpkins. We've gone to the same patch since their first Halloween. This patch seems to get better every year and there seems to be more decorations, plus the proceeds go to an amazing cause.

The kids loved picking out their own pumpkins, but were not really into the whole 'posing for photos' thing. We all got a pumpkin and then drove around to look at the houses that are decorated for Halloween. The place where this patch is located is full of homes that go all out for Halloween. One house looked like a pirate ship and Aaron was convinced it was were Captain Hook lives.

When we got home we let the kids paint their pumpkins, while Scott and I carved ours. I use the word carve loosely with mine, I pretty much hacked mine up, Scott's is carved.

Aaron did a simple layer on the upper part of his pumpkin and he was all set. Now, Jill on the other hand, well she put at least 5 layers of paint on her pumpkin. Here is what the whole pumpkin family looked like:

The kids have already asked a dozen or so times if we are going back to the patch to get more pumpkins. I think this will definitely be a fun tradition for us for years to come.
