A Visit to the Pumpkin Patch {Autumn Colors}

 This past weekend, we visited a local Pumpkin Patch.  
We go each year, and they have many activities in addition to shopping for pumpkins.
And even though you can't tell it in this picture, the boys were real excited and had a great time.
We went to work, searching for this year's "Great Pumpkin".
 The sun was bright and hot.
 All of the pumpkins seemed to call to us, "Pick me, pick me!"
The boys worked quickly, filling our wagon with potential finalists.  
We worked quickly sneaking them back out.
 Amid reports of pumpkin shortages, there were plenty items to choose from, and many were quite unique.
Some looked like strawberry and lace.
Some were already painted and decorated.
A few looked like snakes, all coiled up with their head and tongue out proudly.
Some looked like geese, bending over to sip from the lake.
And some looked like, well, we aren't exactly sure....
But, the Canadian was sure we hadn't seen anything like this around our house.

Have you been out enjoying Autumn?

    Loved your pictures! It made me feel distinctly Autumnal! Always a good thing when you live in a desert.

    Thanks for linking up to Fall Break.
