Pumpkin Patch

We have been waiting for the weather to cool off a little so we could walk down the road to a church selling pumpkins. It is finally starting to cool down a little, so we headed over this afternoon. Baby Cadence was chillin' in the wagon for the journey.
The girls set off to find the perfect pumpkins. They each picked a baby pumpkin and we got a big "family" pumpkin.
They each spent lots of time looking for just the one they wanted. Cadence carried around about 47 different pumpkins before she decided on one.
Story didn't have much to say in her quest. She was all business!
Miss Lyric just kept repeating, "I can't find one." As if 437 pumpkins aren't enough to choose from.
We HAD to take the annual picture in the pumpkins. It took a while to get the perfect shot:
getting everyone settled in for the shot,
they're all looking, but only one has a cute smile,
two girls and a pumpkin,
one down enough with the picture taking,
one down, one losing interest, one still going strong,
it was worth it!
As if they weren't tortured enough let's do a few on the hay bales. Story is thinking: Another picture, COOL! Cadence is thinking: Sit here, okay. Lyric is thinking: Are you kidding me? More pictures!
Yea, that went well:-)
Our pumpkin has cute little stickers for a face and band aids on his head, but the girls have informed us that there will be no carving this year! They don't want to cut 'Pumpkinee" open! I was a little disappointed at first because I wanted to try roasting the seeds. But, carving is always such a mess and the girls tend to lose interest about 10 minutes into it, so it's all good.
* FYI in case you didn't notice Story seems to have moved out of her 'NO PICTURES!' mode or maybe it was just this day. Only time will tell.
