The pumpkin patch was fun there was just a sea of pumpkins. As far as getting a big one.... I think we should have gone to look for one about a week ago because they were pretty picked over. It was a perfect day to go but a little muddy in places (my 2 year old found out). All in all a great day I think everyone should consider buying direct from a pumpkin patch near you vs a Safeway, Walgreens etc.... support local farms!
