Pepes Pumpkin Patch

It was a beautiful day to pick pumpkins!! We made it to the patch around 10 this morning which was perfect timing as it wasn’t very busy. The kids were eager to do the train ride and the hay ride. There went half our pumpkin budget in the first 10 minutes! I was happy to watch them enjoy these rides and also run around exploring the little children’s village they have set up.

It was basically impossible to get all three looking towards me for a photo! We chose some fantastic pumpkins which we will carve two of for Halloween. The smaller pumpkins the kids will likely paint this weekend.

I hope to make this an activity we do every fall as the kids and I really enjoyed ourselves!

Pumpkins

I was on Facebook this evening after getting the kids to bed. I seem to have installed the “Memories” app onto my Facebook at some point and now every so often it pops up to remind me that I have “Memories” that are ready to view.

Today I decided to click on it to see what the memories were and was reminded that on this day last year I accompanied Isabelle and her Grade 1 class to the pumpkin patch.

I love pumpkins and the kids love pumpkins. And do you know what they love more? Picking their own pumpkin out of the field!! This year there will be no school trips. Which means no trip to the pumpkin patch. Madeline has already asked a few times if we are going to buy a pumpkin soon. So far our Zhers has showed great promise of large good looking pumpkins. However before I could answer she then said how much she just loved going to the pumpkin patch!

Of course I have to deliver! I know they would be happy to just pick up some pumpkins the next time I hit up Zhers but it just isn’t the same as going out into the field and finding the perfect one.

I believe I will be taking them out of school this coming week and we will go to a pumpkin patch and choose some awesome pumpkins! The cranky secretary can bite me if she doesn’t like my explanation when I call in their absence. We are barely 2 months into the school year and she has already commented to me about how Madeline is missing a lot of school already and also that I should plan our Dr appointments a little better so they can all go on the same day. Sure, I get right on that. Bite me. Works great if they are all seeing the same damn DOCTOR!!!

Anyways……I’m already searching Pinterest for ideas on how to carve our pumpkins. Do you carve your pumpkins or do you dress them up in other ways? Share your ideas in the comments!
