We decided to make it up to Ellie by going to the local nursery just a few blocks away from us. They tend to have a nice selection of pumpkins. When we got to Red Barn, there was no parking. For blocks. There was a line to get into the nursery. As it turns out, we managed to go on their Fall Festival day. It was crowded. Note: Andrew and I don't do crowds. It is our "old" age showing.
Ellie was enthralled with the pumpkins. So much so that she didn't see the bouncy house. . . with the rather large line. She wanted to climb into the pumpkin displays and filled her enter bag with pumpkins.
She liked the large pumpkins, but it was the Ellie-sized ones that she really wanted. I managed to corral her and keep her pumpkin numbers down to four.
As with our year tradition, we sat outside and painted out pumpkins. I held one back for later this week to put stickers on it.
