The journey of our pumpkins has been a fun one. It started at a local pumpkin patch with our cousins (also home schoolers). Before we headed out on the wagon ride the kids had a blast leaping and bounding across giant hay bails.

The kids picked their themes, helped open them up and scrape out the guts but they left the carving to Mom and Dad. :)
They were to distracted by the nearby wild turkey's gobbling and the Horned owl's hooting to focus on the carving. Nothing says Fall like the sounds of nature! Here they are trying to call back to the owl!
In the end they were each particularly pleased with the results of their pumpkins!
