We went pumpkin picking today!

The boys got to ride in a big trailer pulled by a tractor.

And then each of the children picked out their own pumpkin (although Lavella couldn't seem to hold on to hers).

My favorite shot from the whole day:

She looks sad, but she was actually just unsure.  (The boys were in the tractor, and she wasn't sure how to feel about it.)

Now we're wondering if these are actually the kind that are edible, or are they just ornamental?  I forgot to ask.

The boys are very excited about cooking them and turning them into pie and bread, so if they're not the eating kind, we'll have to get some of the proper kind (or just canned) at the commissary.

So does anyone know how one might tell the difference?
