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.
