BSM: Pumpkins

We finally made it to the pumpkin patch. The funny part about "our" pumpkin patch is that it's just a small patch in someone's yard. We discovered it three years ago when the big farm down the street had a hay maze, pumpkin bowling, and kettle corn, but hardly any pumpkins left. This place has pumpkins, nothing but pumpkins. This year, they had fewer than usual, so we got in and out in about ten minutes....oh, and another ten for pictures :).

Here's He-Man and his feats of pumpkin strength:

And here's the shot I wished I'd had to submit to Melody's Fall photo contest last week :):
