Pumpkins in June?????

Last week we went to visit my cousins kiddos (Cole, Rita, and baby Justin) at my parents house. They were in Gulfport for the week so we went to go play. Nana and Pop had a suprise that had grown out of their compost pile...PUMPKINS! Yep in the middle of June... So Nana and Pop had been waiting for the girls to come over and harvest them. They all had so much fun!

Following pop to see what the suprise is....


(yes I made these dresses too!)

Pop, Cole and Abigail

Amelia doing a little song and dance as always....

Rita, Cole, Abigail and Amelia Counting the pumpkins. It's HEAVY! Cole has his. Rita carrying hers back to the house.
No idea what she was laughing about..but I love her face! Look at all the pumpkins! Amelia and Rita. Too bad I couldn't use the pumpkins for pumpkin patch pics in Oct..... I think these actually grew from some of pumpkins last year that were thrown in the compost pile. I have no idea what Nana and Pop did with the pumpkins but the kids sure did have fun with them!

How funny! Pumpkins in June, who would have thought. It looks like they had a blast with them. (You can boil the pumpkin and then peel and puree then put in the freezer to use for pumpkin bread or pumpkin pie recipes. That is what we do every fall!)
