Picking Pumpkins

Yesterday we took the day off from school and drove to a pumpkin patch. It was a much-needed *down* day for me and the weather was so fall-perfect. I've been looking for a great pumpkin patch/farm since we moved back to Arkansas. I have to admit I've really missed the farm we would always go to while we lived in Alabama. I haven't found anything to compare at all.
I did find one on in the town of Clarksville, AR that I thought might be fun though, so we headed over. It was a nice drive and they did have a better selection of pumpkins, but it was not the total farm experience I was looking for.

However, we found the fattest, fuzziest caterpillar that we've ever seen:)

They had a lots of silly fall/halloween fun around, so we had to enjoy that:)
I love this shot of the kids as Frankenstein and his bride~not that the kiddos have any idea of who these characters are...haha

I could spend tons of money on pumpkins every year. I love all of the different varieties. I refrained though and we only each got a pumpkin to carve~more on those soon!

Even if it wasn't my favorite farm, it was a fun day and we were able to take some fall pics~squinty eyes and all:)

Next up: pumpkin carving and roasting the seeds! That is one of our favorite traditions!

How about you? Does your family enjoy carving pumpkins?
