There were so many fun pictures from our pumpkin hunt that I had to do another post on the whole experience. This little pumpkin farm is in Salt Lake City on 9000 S. and west of Redwood Rd. (I can't remember the road that the actual intersection is). The kids saw it while we were running errands & wouldn't stop talking about all the pumpkins. So later that day, Monday, we loaded up the dad & headed there to pick our pumpkins for the season. Liv was content just to sit in the cart & point out the good pumpkins... such a girl. But Gary was into the pumpkins and dirt before we even got ten steps past the fence. I can't tell you how many times he face planted into the pile of dead vines that surround all the pumpkins through the field, but it didn't matter to him... he'd hop right back up and start running to the next plump pumpkin. He is such a boy! Todd found him a great pumpkin that looks like bum cheeks... he's got big plans for that one. I guess that tells you a little bit more about my husband! I was content just to keep snapping pictures all the while. The shadows were real harsh, that was frustrating, but it was a wonderful time for me to watch the family bond while participating in such a tradition & capturing every moment on my camera!
