We started a new tradition today by taking Raeann to a pumpkin patch to pick our own pumpkin. It was $5.00 a pumpkin, so we will probably only do this once and get any more we want from Walmart, but it was a lot of fun.
A small one for our girl...I don't think this one is worth $5.00.
There were many pumpkins that looked like a good choice. We choose this one to sit on mainly.
I wasn't sure how Raeann would take to being put on the ground, as last time my dad placed her in the grass she started screaming, but she was more curious this time in what she could grab from the ground than the fact that it was something new and unsettling.
The pumpkin patch was so exciting that she slept for an hour in the car while Mike and I drove up to the Uncompahgre Plateau to look for some colors, but unfortunately all the trees above our elevation had pretty much shed their leaves already. Bummer...
