Picking Pumpkins in a real Pumpkin Patch

There's the pumpkin patch!

Okay, try saying that title 3 times real fast! Actually I was probably more excited than Kira was to go Pumpkin Picking as I have never done that before. To actually go out in the fields and pick your own pumpkin made me feel like some little kid again. It was such a cold morning and both Kira and I have rather ugly colds, but we managed to make it to the tractor ride for a bumpy ride out past small growing Evergreens, beautiful maple and oak trees and funky decorations put up for the night hay rides. It was cute to see the faces of all the kids on the ride to the pumpkins. Some had been there before and acted as if it was their first time. Then I remembered how I too as a young child looked forward to dressing up in a silly costume and going from house to house collecting as much sugar as their were people to give it out. I also remember stomping through the leaves with friends, and now thought that I am going to re-live some of my past memories with my little daughter. I want us to share many "firsts" together. I had a huge smile on my face and I looked at Kira as she thought "I'd rather be watching Elmo".
So this is what all the excitement is about!
Mommy, come get me now because you put me on these wet pumpkins!
Oh so this is dirt, a new experience.
Got another pumpkin. This was so much fun!

Kira's thinking, hey I got my pumpkin, now let's go!
