Pumpkin Patch Kids

My children LOVED the pumpkin patch this year.  And I loved watching them play together and snapping pictures of them left and right while they were soaking up the fall sunshine last weekend.

It was the perfect afternoon to choose our grand assortment of pumpkins for Halloween this year, and we were very successful in our efforts!  We brought home 18 pumpkins!  Well, 20 pumpkins if you count these two super cutie-pies right here...

This afternoon, we set out on our mission to get our pumpkins carved.  Reagan has become the resident expert at choosing the perfect designs for carving some serious jack-o-lanterns, as she has been doing this for a few years now.  

Myers, however, was very anxious to figure out exactly what we were doing! At first, he was content to just explore around the pumpkins.  He finally got up the nerve to stick his arm inside, and before we knew it, he was LICKING the pumpkins!  Apparently, there's no better way to learn about something new than by using all of your senses to do so!

After our carvings were complete, we placed our prized pumpkins in our front yard on display for the rest of our neighbourhood to enjoy with us.

If I do say so myself, we did a pretty good job of decorating once again this year!
