Pumpkins at our house

This year we tried an experiment and extended our garden into our front yard. We planted three blueberry bushes, an apple tree, spaghetti squash, yellow squash and PUMPKINS! Everything did really well out there, and it was so fun to have the extra garden space.

Today we harvested the front garden and here's the line-up! After giving some away to our neighbors, we still (obviously) have plenty of beautiful pumpkins to enjoy!

We did some pumpkin art (I love that Jenna drew eyelashes on hers)
And Elsie was THRILLED with the opportunity to use markers
Here are two smiling happy kids.
And here's a really fun picture from today.
So, I am officially ready for the seasons to transition and to begin the fall/winter season!
