Well... It was a blast! We literally spent hours outside playing with pumpkin goo and seeds and making designs on pumpkins and we didn't get bored. Here are some pictures from our adventure:
These are the first 3 pumpkins we did out of a total of 7 I believe we ended up doing over the month of OctoberTaking off the top of the pumpkin is very exciting. I dont know why but I expected it to be full all the way to the top off pumpkin goo. And major confession: I dont know how Pumpkin pies are made but I kept thinking you must need a bunch just to make one pie. I guess I need to go investigate on that.
The seeds are huge! And man is everything sticky
After all that cleaning and scraping of the pumpkin our bowls were full!
