We went to the local pumpkin patch-its right across from Target so the kids finally get me to go! The kids loved walking through the field trying to find the perfect pumpkin---which I sadly said "uh can we find one that is prettier looking?"---does that make me a bad parent? If a pumpkin will be on my step I want it to be somewhat decent shaped and be able to stand up and not fall over! The kids liked sitting on the pumpkins-it was so fun. This was one of those days that I was glad I did not have volleyball to go to to interrupt our family time!
