Pumpkin Picking

The weather was beautiful on Sunday so we took a ride to our familiar stomping grounds Muscoot Farm to pick up our pumpkin.
We took a quick spin through the Farmer's Market. Then Ish heard music and insisted we check out what was going on.
There was a country band playing as part of the Autumn Festival that was going on at the farm.
Ish was intrigued.
And he immediately started to bust a move to the country rhythm.
After some dancing, we headed out the the pumpkin patch to look for the perfect pumpkin.
Ish decided the best way to determine which pumpkin to get was to give each one a "sit test"
That's when Dada had to intervene. I was not in the mood to have to explain a pumpkin-butt injury to Dr. Huang.
Ish cooperated for a nano-second and we got a pretty decent picture of the 2 of us.
After pumpkins, we said hello to a few friends. The ducks.
And the turkeys. Made me look forward to Thanksgiving....
We explored the horse barn and learned that Ish is 8 hands tall. Good to know.
Then it was snack time. Because really, when is it not??!!
Before heading out we made a quick run to the PB vendor at the Farmer's Market and picked up a few yummy things (on the left is banana flavored peanut butter with raisins - YUM!)
Then we picked up a pickle for the road. Doesn't everyone?
