Pumpkin Pickin Time!!

I have always wanted to go to a pumpkin patch and today that is exactly what we did. This afternoon Andy and I made a trip to Dickey's pumpkin patch in Springdale. We had never been to one before and I was super excited. When we pulled in all I saw was a huge open field with specks of orange and white.

We got a wagon and went lookin for the best pumpkins we could find. We walked up and down several rows until we found some that we liked. When we found one we liked Andy cut it from the vine.
These pumpkins are specifically for making pumpkin pies. We bought two of these and Andy is hoping to make homemade pumpkin pie. We will see how that goes! Andy was in charge of cutting the pumpkins and pulling the wagon...he was such a good sport.
One of our beauties!
Pretty big pumpkin...I overheard a man say that they had a pumpkin that weighed over 100 pounds last year!
All of our pumpkins and gourds!! We had such a great time at the pumpkin patch! We bought all of these for around $26.00. Not too bad!! If you have never been to a pumpkin must go! It was so much fun! Andy and I will make this a tradition every year!
