Pumpkin Patch

Courtney and I decided to take advantage of the nice weather and take the kids to the pumpkin patch that we visited last year. The frost had caused some problems for the gardener, Rick, so he piled up the pumpkins that made it thru the cold spell. Not much of a patch, but the kids had a great time picking out their pumpkins. Rick walked them thru the corn field to get to the patch and then the hunt began. It was very short. I think Emmett chose the first one he saw and the girls pretty much did the same. Courtney and I had dressed the kids in their Halloween clothes to take pictures, but we both forgot to take off their coats before doing so! Oh well, I'm sure we'll get another chance. (Like on the couch, where it is warm and they don't need coats!)
