Pumpkin Picking!

Hyrum loves pumpkins! He thinks they are the greatest! About two weeks ago for Family Home Evening we went to go find pumpkins. Of course, the day we decided to go it was raining. Also, we went to a local farm area only to find out that it closed about a half hour before we got there.

Luckily for us there was a local grocery store that had people selling pumpkins on their parking lot. They had a huge blow-up pumpkin next to their tent that Hyrum would point out any time we drove by the store. Today we drove by the spot where the big pumpkin was and Hyrum was so worried because the big pumpkin wasn't where it used to be. Hyrum loved walking around looking at all the many different pumpkins. He had to look at every single pumpkin. He was in heaven! The babies once again were content to sit in their stroller and look around at everything.

However, we didn't buy our pumpkins there, we ending up buying them in the grocery store since the tent of pumpkins price was outrageous! The same pumpkin that we got at the grocery store for $3.99 cost $15.00 outside in the tent. Anyways, Hyrum didn't care as long as he was able to get a pumpkin!

Fun! We got a pumpkin but never got around to carving it. Sad. I'm using it as decoration and a door stopper now.
