Punkin' Pickin'

After our unsuccessful attempt at getting a pumpkin last weekend due to foul weather, we headed up the road on Saturday for some good old fashioned family fun.

The weather turned out to be beautiful this time and the Thomaason farm was awesome.

Bruce and Terri joined us on our adventure.  We all wish we had packed our muddin' boots as the previous day's rain made walking a little tricky.

Momma and her little pepper.

Not only did we find some nice pumpkins, but the perfect little pepper ripe for the picking.  Seriously, we think she  was outgrowing the costume as we watched.  Luckily she has a second costume for the big show next Saturday.

All tuckered out.  Elle had to get a ride back with the pumpkin in Poppi's wheelbarrow.

Almost two feet!  Can you believe it?!?

We had a really nice time at the farm and hope to go back many times in the years to come.  Thanks Grammi and Poppi for coming.
