A Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

On Sunday we went to Ackerman Farms in Morton to pick out pumpkins to carve. This was Jadon's first trip to the pumpkin patch. Matt picked out a very interesting looking gourd to carve. Shelby and Jake wanted to pick a gourd out also but we all decided that we would choose one this year to try. We were not sure if it was going to work out. We were worried that the gourd might be solid inside. I am sure that next year there will be several gourds if this one works out. We also picked up a cooking pumpkin for Jadon to try. We will see how he likes it. All kinds of squash are his favorites. A pumpkin is closely related so I am thinking he will like it.
