Today we’re heading out to a pumpkin patch in north Charlotte. Supposedly they have hay rides and pony rides and you can pick the pumpkins straight off the vine rather than just picking them up in a big field. I’m in the mood for pumpkin pie, so I plan on buying a super-big pumpkin and do some of the things mentioned in this post describing various ways to maximize your pumpkin purchase!
The kids are on pins and needles. I took the liberty of sleeping in this morning and apparently CootieGirl was very distressed that she was going to miss out on all the fun. Every five minutes for the past hour she has breathlessly asked, “Are we ready now?”
And so with that I’m off to take my shower so that we can be out of here by noon.
