I have this thing with my kids....
Every year we go pumpkin picking and when it's time to choose,
I only have one rule -
You have to be able to carry your pumpkin out of the place....
I think he's learned his lesson over the years...
Yes, she has always been borderline with hers.
(This year I ended up carrying it across the parking lot to the car for her-
After she carved it she picked it up and said, "Wow! It's a lot lighter now!")
Where is your favorite place to pick pumpkins?
