Pickin' Pumpkins

We picked some of our pumpkins today. We are waiting for the rest to ripen. When we put them on the front porch, the kids were excited that Petunia wanted to be in the picture. Sadie says this picture can be our Halloween card. (like I am that organized)

The rest of the pictures are of the kids picking them. (I know those should have been first with the final picture last) Apparently T.S.'s was very heavy. Sadie seems to be a descendant of people who carry things on their head. If you can't tell, it was/is very windy today.

You'll also notice the kids' boots. We call them irrigating boots. Wal Mart calls them chore boots. The kids and I each have our own pair to wear in the pens when working with the animals.

Speaking of which: the new pig is officially named Harry. He is feeling better and not limping nearly as much.

I'm so impressed with your pumpkins. You guys should become pumpkin farmers!

I'm thinking about it. We already have the petting zoo to go with a pumpkin patch.

Seriously, you could give hayrides and sell snowcones. Who wouldn't come?
