I grew up on a farm, and we always grew our own pumpkins, so the whole idea of going to a pumpkin patch and just picking out the one you want is kind of new to me. We got the one we grew, and If we were lucky we got two (that's if the rabbit's didn't get it). But yet, I always remember having the most perfect pumpkin, never was it oddly shaped or under ripe! I guess we were just good pumpkin growers!
I love these two pictures, I'm the young one in the pink, and that's my big brother, and big sister!
