This past weekend we took a break. I took a break from studying. Dan took a break from work. Quinn took a break from being cranky. We all went to pick out our pumpkins! (or a Q calls them Pah-kins)
First I have to tell you that Quinn was officially introduced to pah-kins in her play group. We examined them and talked about all of their wonderful characteristics. Then we sang a song about them to the melody of "If You're Happy and You Know It".
It goes like this:
Hey there Mista pah-kin, how are you?
Hey there Mista Pah-kin, how are you?
You're short and round and fat and you where a funny hat (ha ha or clap clap)
Hey there Mista Pah-kin, how are you????Seriously, Q is IN LOVE with this song. She knows all of the gestures and runs around the house singing this lovely tune. Anyway, you would have thought that we were the best parents EVER! Q was SO excited to have her very own Mista Pah-kin. We planned on keeping them all outside but she has to visit hers every few minutes so he is in the kitchen on her play kitchen. Isn't that where all pumpkins go?!?! :) Anyway, we probably picked up 57,000 different pumpkins at one time or another. Finally we settled for 3 very cute and little (and short, round and fat) pumpkins. Then we ended our trip with an attempt through the corn maze.
