We visited the Bush-N-Vine Farm in York, SC to pick out our pumpkins to carve for Halloween. As I am only a few weeks away from my due date, I definitely feel like the biggest pumpkin in the patch! Ugh!
We did have a great time though. The day was overcast, but fairly warm (or maybe that was just my hormones). In addition to the "pick your own pumpkins," they have flower fields you can pick from, a huge variety of delicious looking fresh produce, a corn maze, sandbox complete with large Tonka trucks, a fun hayride tour of the farm and a few other neat little things for the kids. If you are in the York, SC area and looking for something to do, I highly recommend the Bush-N-Vine farm!
After we got home with our orange beauties, it was carving time! I mentioned to my husband that I had seen some examples where people used drill bits to carve their jack o' lanterns and he was all about busting out the power tools! Our son thought it was a pretty good idea, too! I went "old school" and carved a regular face in mine. I outlined the cuts with a black marker as this is something my dad has always done, so I carry on the tradition.
