Painted Pumpkins

Carving pumpkins is fun! Every kid should carve a pumpkin at least once. But because my kiddo is still a bit young to be trusted with a carving knife, we opted to have him paint his pumpkins instead. We still went to the pumpkin patch, well actually that's sort of a lie. I say sort of because we went to a Harvest Festival with some of our best friends. And they had all sorts of fun, crafty booths, good food, and rides for the kiddos. Jakey went down this huge slide!

And they did have pumpkins at the festival, but they were way over-priced and kind of small. So we decided we were going to go pick some up locally that week at a patch. Well, the next day we found pumpkins for pretty cheap at the grocery store and Jakey decided he was going to pose on the pumpkins for some pics.

You can't even really tell the difference between the store and a patch, aside from the Ralph's sign, lol. I figure the two experiences together equate to a pumpkin patch experience! We got the pumpkins home, laid out some paper and got to work with the paints.

Jakey Loved every minute of it! And here is the final result!

I'm so happy we decided to paint the pumpkins, Jakey definitely had more fun painting the pumpkins, instead of watching us carve them for him!
