Pumpkin picking

We enjoyed another beautiful fall day with nice temperatures and sunny skies.  It was a perfect morning for a visit to Szalay's Farm to choose our pumpkins.  We each have a different idea of what the "perfect" pumpkin looks like.

Grace and I seem to like the rounder ones, but I always want mine with bumps or a long, curvy stem. Kyle chose a tall one.  He says he has an idea of how he wants to carve it.

We also went in the 3-acre corn maze and the spinning barn. And Grace did a little target practice trying to knock down the crows.

The "spinning" barn had an optical illusion where you walk on a metal bridge through a lit tube that spins around you.  It makes it seem like the walkway is moving when it really isn't!

This photo is from Szalay's website.  It gives you an idea of the size of the 3-acre maze, but I don't think this is the design we walked through.  They give you a map and you go on a hunt for 8 decorated "dead ends" with skeletons, ghosts, pumpkins, and other Halloween-themed items.
