My family and I went pumpkin hunting yesterday and the boys had a great time picking out their pumpkins. Alex found his right away, one with a long twisted stem on it. Carter had a little harder time finding the right one, and I think it had a lot to do with how heavy the pumpkin was. He would pick one up and we would say, "is that the one you like?" Without saying anything he would put it down and look for another pumpkin, and each time the pumpkin would be a little smaller and a better shape to handle. Finally he found one and he carried it until we were ready to pay for it.
While I was looking for a few gourds to use as decoration the boys went over to the area where they kept goats. Kyle pointed out that the goats have slits instead of circles in their eyes, Alex thought that was pretty neat. The boys were really excited to see a goat for the first time, and they were even brave enough to pet them.
When we were leaving Carter said his favorite part of the pumpkin hunting was seeing the goats.
