We began a new tradition for our family last year, we call it Family Pumpkin Day. But … it comes with one requirement, you must bring something made with pumpkin!!
The day begins with everyone meeting at one of the local farms nearby. After all of the hellos, kisses and chest bumps, the girls — Paige, Cayla and Ashley (remember now, they are in their 20’s) — run straight to the small, perfectly shaped pumpkins while Nick and Austin immediately start a pumpkin-lifting contest with the biggest ones they can find. Judy, myself and Jackie walk away quietly, dying from embarrassment and worried that they will drop them, break off a stem or if the farm will ask us to leave!
