We jetted over to the high school, picked Joel up from football practice and by that time it was time to go back to the merit badge dude's house and pick Seth up. Seth had band at 6:00, so I knew we didn't have any time to go home first--we turned the car around again and drove straight out to Ontario Orchards (our favorite local farm stand) where I had heard that there was a pumpkin patch. When I asked where the patch was once we got there, they told us that all the pumpkins had been picked, so we just ended up choosing one from the already harvested lot.
Danny took this task seriously, closely inspecting each pumpkin. I guess he did get to pick the pumpkin--he just picked it off a shelf instead of off a vine.
|One of my boys said this one was "ugly" but I kind of love it.|
|There was some serious consideration given to this bum-shaped pumpkin because I have four boys.|
After we dropped Seth at band we went home and had quesadillas for dinner and made caramel apples. Not bad for a busy, October day's work.
