The Great Pumpkin Hunt…

on November 1, 2012

Every year around this time, jack-o-lanterns are popping up everywhere!

From the scary ones to the super cute ones, we at the Sloan household LOVE getting into the festivities of the season!

This year, just like all the years past, we jumped into the car and headed to a local church where we always purchase our pumpkins.  Unlike all the years of the past, we waited until the weekend before Halloween (things have been super busy this year for us) to make our annual run to the pumpkin patch.  We arrived very cheerful (even though the weather was anything but) and began checking out the pumpkins — or lack thereof.

We waited too late *sigh*

The only pumpkins left were super huge pumpkins and itty bitty baby pumpkins.

We searched high and low…

for just the right one…

When all of a sudden LB3 exclaimed “I found it!”

She put it in the wagon and since none of the rest of us could find just the right one for ourselves, we paid for her pumpkin and loaded back into the car.

We thought and thought and thought, trying to figure out where we would go to get our pumpkins!

And decided that a quick trip to the ice cream shop would help us think better.

That is one big bowl of ice cream!

It helped us to decide to go home and come up with a new plan for another day.

We ended up trying Food Lion and they were all out by the time we got there.  Back to the drawing board.  Oh well, at least it was a fun outing — and as LB2 said “at least we got ice cream”!  LOL

Til next time…
