We picked a beautiful Saturday afternoon in late October and made the short drive to Schaake's in Lawrence for our annual visit to the pumpkin patch.
How much fun would it be to carve that pumpkin above? OK, maybe not gutting it but carving it - shoot yeah!
parched pumpkin patch. The kids were sports and walked rows and rows of patches in search of the perfect pumpkin to no avail. There were a handful of small green or yellow pumpkins and an assortment of flat white pumpkins which we all liked but not a one "acceptable" "pretty" orange carving pumpkin was to be found.
We did leave with a small assortment of pumpkins including a rather nice, large orange pumpkin (not pictured) that we selected from the pre-picked sale area.
Travis & Papa were working this particular weekend so Mema accompanied us. More pictures to come in an ETC post.
