The pumpkin patch has become a family tradition at our house. I don’t think my boys even know you can buy pumpkins at regular stores because each year we pick our own!
Every DAY O’Bear would ask, “When are we going to the pumpkin patch,” until I finally pinned down a date for him. From then on he was counting down the days and then the hours. Was he excited or what?
We decided not to go to the one closest to our house and instead got into the car for mini trip about an hour away. We wanted an adventure!
The whole way there the boys were planning what size pumpkin they would get, how many we were going to pick, and how we would decorate them.
I had one rule. You pick it. You carry it.
