Ah, the air is crisp and cool once again. Trees are turning colors, Jen is knitting hats, and pumpkins are in need of carving! That’s right; it was time to go pick out our pumpkins for this year’s Halloween. Awesome!
It was a good year for growing pumpkins, despite rumors due to the dry summer weather. Noah and I hopped out of the van and darted towards the pallets of pumpkins. We quickly glanced at the trailers of smaller pumpkins and gourds, but then decided to race towards the larger Noah-size ones. How were we to decide?
We wandered amongst the pumpkins for awhile. There was a rather special pumpkin sitting on one of the trailers. We had to be sure to take that one home with us.
We finally picked out the ones we wanted, thanked the local farmers, and my ‘Pumkin Buddy’, Mom, and I headed home.
