The GIANT Pumpkins!

Watch out, Charlie Brown!  I know where the Great Pumpkin grows.  The kids go to our church.  The two girls were adopted from Brazil, where their new Mom grew up.  The boy with the curly hair is her son.  They were so intrigued with the pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns on display for Halloween.

One of our neighbors grows these giant pumpkins for competitions he goes to.  This particular one weighs approximately 800 pounds.  The kids were amazed at the size of the pumpkins and that there were 5 or 6 all about the same size.  Their mom had never seen a pumpkin plant.  Everyone had a great time looking at and touching the huge pumpkins, although they could not sit on them!

Thanks for stopping by and looking at the giant pumpkins.  Wouldn't Charlie Brown love this!?!
