Orange

It’s been raining and hailing and blustering around like crazy…

So I guess we got the pumpkin patch trip in just in time!

First we pose as a pony:

Then we run through the corn maze:

Finally we get to the pumpkin patch to pick out OUR pumpkin.  Wow!  Where do we start?

Here’s a possibility – and it’s got a bonus stem/leaf still on it…  A little small, though.

Maybe this one.  Except it’s got dirt on it.

Now here’s a unique one!  But Mom says no decayed pumpkins…

Ahh!  The perfect peanutty-shaped pumpkin that looks like two pumpkins!  And it’s big enough!  Now comes the lift test.  Can I lift it?

Ugggh.  This is harder than I thought!  But I CAN do it.

The rain starts pouring down!  Here’s a handy umbrella…

And it’s got SEEDS in it!

Finally, the rain stops, just as it’s time to get back on the hay wagon and head back to the parking lot (where the car is locked with the keys inside).
