A Day at the Pumpkin Patch

Today, we took the kids out to Rondriso Farms on 172nd Street in Surrey, B.C. It is a nearby working farm that not only handles cattle, but offers that largest pumpkin patches in our area.

We enjoyed a hayride out to the field to select our pumpkins:

There were many pumpkins to choose from:

My youngest son selected his:

My oldest selected his:

My good friend, Sherri, selected hers (apparently, she could not decide on which):

My husband spent the greatest amount of time...venturing deep into the patches to locate the ultimate pumpkin:

This afforded me time to carefully select mine -- isn't it pristine?

Before we delivered our bounty to the car, we stopped to pay our respects to this poor farmer:

Tune in next weekend...when we carve our pumpkins and decorate the house and yard for Halloween.
