The Kansas girl in me loves an authentic pumpkin patch where you can pick your pumpkin from the vine and go on a hay ride before you go home. Unfortunately we do not have those kinds of pumpkin patches nearby. We did find a fun pumpkin “stand” to select our future jack ‘o’ lanterns at and take some cute pics. Kobe was seriously committed to his Avatar costume complete with a shaved head. Natalie and her best friend Makenzie were their versions of Winnie the Pooh and Piglet. We go back and forth each year between going to Harvest Festivals or staying home. This year we were lazy and stayed home passing out candy.
