Pumpkin Season

It's that time of year again. Time for pumpkins! Honestly, it's the one thing about Halloween that I really enjoy. The other stuff is OK, but going to the pumpkin patch, carving the pumpkins, and roasting the seeds are really the best part. are our pumpkin adventures! :)

We took the kids to a new pumpkin patch this year and they LOVED it!! There were a ton of activities for them to do...they already want to go back.

Duckie Races

Me and my handsome husband :)
The corn pit...very cool. The entire thing is filled with corn!
A fantastic petting area with pigs, a mini donkey, a mini pony, goats, and calves all within perfect reaching distance for the kids.
They also had little bikes, a hay bale maze, a pumpkin slingshot and even, yes, a pumpkin patch....BUT this is where my camera battery died. So I didn't get anymore pics. However, tonight we carved our pumpkins, so here are some shots of that:
Brandon lets the kids draw the faces on, and then he carves them. Ethan drew a face, and then drew a whole little halloween scene
Annabeth just scribbles, but she has a great time doing it :)
Ethan checking out his sister's work
Daddy getting ready to carve...
Now to dig out the guts!And after the carving, they watched Charlie Brown...
...while wearing vampire teeth. Very Halloweenish :)

Happy Halloween everyone!!
