85 degrees didn't make it the perfect day to be pumpkin picking. Somehow it doesn't seem like one should be wishing one were at the beach when walking through a corn maze. Because we did do the corn maze. Tried the "scenic route" instead of "easy street" - 40 minutes later found our way back to "easy street" and found our way out. Harry was disappointed - he wanted to find the "scenic route" way out. And he wanted to be lost in the corn maze. I said we were lost in the corn maze. But we did eventually find our way out. (I never really doubted that we would.)
And then it was time to pick a pumpkin. Today the kids picked pumpkins appropriate for painting faces on - closer to Halloween we'll get some that they can carve.
There were also some fun little 'gravestones' in the pumpkin field. It's hard to read what this one says in the picture. It says "Virgina Ham - Not Cured".
It was a lovely fall thing to do - too bad it felt like summer.
