Pumpkins! Pumpkins!

When we picked Ethan up from school the other day we decided it was time to pick out some pumpkins.
It was very hard to choose.
They each got to pick one, but they were not very expensive so I had a hard time reeling them in when they wanted 2 or 3 each.
At one point we had 6 or more pumpkins sitting beside the car.
And I thought that seemed a bit much.
This little girl was particularly fussy when I tried to take her pumpkin away.
She was very interested in touching all of them and quickly moved from pumpkin to pumpkin looking for the next best one.
They had several that were just huge! How does that happen? Excessive amounts of Miracle Grow?
Does this look familiar?Yes, he really is constantly in motion.
And Ethan is constantly curious and actively learning.
And she found some pumpkins
that were just her size
and she picked up just as many as she could.
The farmer took pity on me and told me to let her have one of them for free.
This one was a keeper.
There were also
tractors for the kids
to explore
and climb on.
She does her best to keep up with them. It truly doesn't matter what it is they are doing, she will try to do it too.
And finally, it is impossible
to get a photo
with all of them smiling
and looking at the camera
at the same time.
GIVE ME MY GOLDFISH!!!!!!!!!!!! Can you hear her????
We all had a great time!
Just another one of my favorite things to do this time of year.
