Early Trip Out to the Pumpkin Patch

Scarecrows, hay bails, tractors, farm animals and classic cars--all toured by Izzy and Rigel while towed in a wheelbarrow.

Lots of fun--hay rides around the pumpkin patch and riding ponies under the mulberry trees

Rigel took one look at the very first pile of pumpkins he ran up to, and had his pumpkin picked out within seconds; Izzy was more picky. She didn't like any of the orange ones, but luckily there was a variety of sizes and colors to choose from. White was her final choice.

Taking a break after a busy day on the farm

Carving pumpkins late at night (kiddos should be in bed by now!)
Rigel absolutely could not wait any longer to carve his pumpkin. As soon as we got it home, he decided his pumpkin was to have "a spooky face." We had to reassure Izzy several times that the pumpkins weren't scary (her face scrunched up: "scary, no spooky pumpkins!" as she scrambled away), especially when we opened the pumpkin "lids." I think she wasn't sure what to expect or why we were opening up the pumpkins, and she sure didn't want to find out.
There are still a couple days until October begins, and our family is almost done with Halloween!
