We went to a local produce stand - one that we only discovered after moving, even though I haven't lived more than 10 minutes from it for the past 20+ years. The prices were great and Charlotte picked out six pumpkins. We got a big one for Mark, a medium one for me, a small one for Charlotte and three tiny ones for her nanny (my friend Christine), her husband and her little boy Oliver. Charlotte asks to get Oliver something almost everywhere we go. So sweet!
My dad was able to spare about an hour to join us on our trip. Charlotte loved riding in the car next to "Ampa" and showing him her picks. Even if she did try to ram him with the cart. Considering she could only move it a few inches (there was probably about 30 pounds of pumpkin in that cart) he didn't have much to worry about. Besides, I think he quite enjoyed their outing!
