Oh, it was so much fun! The kids claimed their own miniature wheelbarrow and wheeled it around looking for the perfect Halloween pumpkin.
London chose her pumpkin within the first minute, while Nathaniel spent a long time inspecting the different varieties, and finally selected one with a curly stem.

Rich's Mom, 'Grandma Eilene', is friends with the family who owns the farm, and she takes all the grandkids (5 of them now!) there to pick pumpkins every year. I didn't think we were going to be able to do go this year; Grandma Eilene actually had a brain hemorrage 3 weeks ago, and only got out of the hospital last Monday. She has had an absolutely miraculous recovery, which we are all grateful for.
And so we played in the pumpkin patch..
