Pumpkin Picking

This Saturday Shawn and I went to the pumpkin patch and picked some pumpkins. This was the first time that I'd ever picked my own pumpkins, so I was pretty excited and took some pictures. Shawn informed me that he felt silly taking pictures of pumpkin picking. Not all of us were lucky enough to have parents who grew pumpkins in their backyard growing up. Here's my first pumpkin. Isn't it cute?

The pumpkin patch we went to has so many cool pumpkins. There were the traditional orange ones, but they also had some "specialty types". We were both quite impressed by the all white pumpkin and the "bloodshot" pumpkin. The all white one was just that- all pure white. It was pretty amazing. I didn't know pumpkins came like that! The bloodshot pumpkins were mostly white, but they had what looked like orange veins on the surface. It made it look like a bloodshot eye! It was really neat! I wish I would have taken a picture of one of those ones, but check out the white ones in this one!
We took our pumpkins to my parents house that evening where we all carved them. That was pretty fun. However, as you can tell from the picture below, none of us are especially artistically inclined. And yes, my pumpkin is that crappy one on the left.
