Pickin' Pumpkins

For Family Home Evening we went to Purdum's Pumpkin Patch and farm stand in New Plymouth, Idaho. It was such a fun activity! They had an area set up with straw bales, an old truck and pumpkins everywhere for picture taking. Then we rode on a trailer pulled by a really old tractor to the pumpkin patch.

It was full of pumpkins of every color, size and shape you could imagine. The kids were in heaven. I told them they could choose any pumpkin as long as they could carry it. Mia broke the rule and had a nice gentleman help her, but her HUGE pumpkin was atleast 100 lbs. and I wouldn't let her get it. She found another nice sized one and was just as happy. Van went right to the white pumpkins and found a great one and didn't let go.

Along with pumpkins we also got some amazing veggies. The peppers were almost as big as Van's head! We had such a great time that I think we'll have to make this a tradition. I love traditions! And Fall!
