Pumpkins, carvings, friends... oh my!

Friday night, John and I went pumpkin picking with our good friends Mark and Katie. Now I don't remember the last time I went and picked a pumpkin, not to mention carved a pumpkin. So when J came home from lunch last Sunday with Mark and asked if I would be up for a pumpkin date, I about jumped out of my socks.

Seriously??? You would go pick pumpkins and carve them??!!
Yep!! Do you want to?!

Needless to say, we don't do this kind of thing that often. :) This was our first time picking and carving pumpkins together. I just had never thought of it. I thought, We'll do it with kids. And I was never disappointed by that. But now that we did it together, I don't think we'll be able to go back to not doing it. What a fun night! This is definitely an up-and-coming tradition.
Katie was so cute asking Mark for the biggest pumpkin.
I feel I made a good selection!
My amazing husband who took me.
J was pretty proud of himself. And the last to find his :)
Our love pumpkins.
We have the best friends.
Back at home, Emma and Frankie welcomed us.
And we dove right in! (well, Katie and J did. Mark planned his face and I took pictures :)
The guts :)
