Pumpkin Patch 2014
Yesterday we went to the local pumpkin patch. Generally we go there early in the month (check out previous years 2010, 2011, 2012 we skipped 2013) and buy pumpkins somewhere less expensive, but this year we waited until the last minute. There is also some kind of pumpkin shortage in town so there was a mad rush for pumpkins. When we arrived at the patch there were not many pumpkins left and the light was fading. Looking from the outside in it was probably hilarious to see the procrastinator parents taking photos by the few remaining pumpkins, angling for daylight. Oh, and it was super windy.
Cordelia was incredibly annoyed by the wind.
A little better...right? Oh and that is the face that Elise makes when you ask her to smile.
Checking for rot, or something. I don't really think there is much to pumpkin picking.
Where are they looking? Seriously when Eric and I say, "look at the camera" the girls will look every other direction.
Hunting for pumpkins
We found a couple and it only cost us our immortal souls, that pumpkin patch has quite a racket going. There were normal sized pumpkins for well over $20! We got a "deal" on some slightly deformed beauties---but I always go for the underdogs anyway.
Tonight we carve!
