fall fun (in pictures!)

Pumpkin Picking
We went to a local Farmer's Market to pick out our pumpkins this year.  The kids took their time and sorted through dozens of different ones before finding the perfect pumpkin.

Bumpy the Pumpkin
Lexie fell in love with this bumpy pumpkin while the boys went with more traditional choices.

503d MP BN hosted a Fall Festival for all of the Soldiers and families.  The kids were excited to go horseback riding for the first time!!

painting pumpkins
We also painted pumpkins, went to the haunted house (at least Jacob, Nick, and Ben did), went on a hayride, and enjoyed the BBQ.

carving fun
This year we made the kids pull the guts out of their pumpkins-- they enjoyed it!!

ewwww..... pumpkin guts
Lexie wasn't sure about it so Jacob had to shove her hand in.  And then she wanted to eat the seeds!

It was pouring rain and really cold out this year on Halloween so we ended up skipping trick-or-treating.

We put out candy for any daring trick-or-treaters and watched "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown"
