Pumpkin Patch

Today we visited the pumpkin patch, and the weather was so nice. It was perfect for pumpkin picking! We picked a pumpkin for carving, and 2 for the kids - Ezra picked his own and Jesse pointed out several he approved of; they also had a junior 'haunted' maze (not really scary at all), one of those big jumping tents, hotdogs, drinks, and hayrides. We had a blast! Jesse was most happy with the dogs that were there, in one of the photos in the collage below you can see him patting at his tummy, signing 'dog'. The pumpkins are purchased on an honor system - they have several sizes lined up with pricing on them, and you just go up and give them your prices for what you believe yours cost. No questions asked. It's really odd to find the honor system around here - or anywhere. We'll have pumpkin carving sometime soon - I'll post a photo of our final product when we're done.
