The pumpkin patch

Yesterday, we took a little family trip to the pumpkin patch.  The weather was perfect and the pumpkins were plentiful!  In fact, the farmer said that it was his first day of selling for the season.  Yes, we're a little impatient when it comes to pumpkins and we must be the early birds!

We always go to a local farmer to buy our pumpkins.  He sells them right in his front yard.  There are always unique pumpkins to choose from, in addition to the standard jack-o'-lantern pumpkins: white pumpkins, "peanut" pumpkins (which look like someone glued peanuts all over them) and lots of gnarly gourds.

And of course, huge pumpkins!  Our oldest picked this huge pumpkin, changed her mind and put it back, then changed her mind again & put it back in our wagon.  All that indecisiveness led to quite a workout!

And today, the Bachsters have been plotting and planning their designs and carving schemes for each pumpkin that now resides on our front porch.  They may be too excited to wait until Halloween!

Are you doing any fun Fall activities this weekend?
