The Pumpkin Fairy

While in Missouri, Oma took the boys to a pumpkin patch. Noah, never one for listening much anyway, needed no instruction and immediately marched right over to the pumpkins and began inspecting...

...eventually he found one

...and Uncle Willie found a few more.

Here is how you get a pumpkin picked by Uncle Sidney safely home:

While at the patch, we had a wonderful visit from the Pumpkin Fairy (aka Mrs. Johnson). The boys were showered with bags FULL of goodies and huge jars of animal crackers. The fairy also told them a wonderful story that Calvin still talks about involving a magic "pumpkin power" ring that can turn all the pumpkins to life.

Though Noah listened skeptically, all the other little boys completely bought it.

So much fun in the pumpkin patch! Those are massive! I'm just a little jealous... We snagged the very last pumpkin out of Target's stock - it's such a sad pumpkin with scratches and goop coming out of the bottom.

Those are some serious pumpkins! We still haven't made it to the store to buy pumpkins, much less a patch.
