Orange You Glad We Met?: 15 Reasons To Love Kids & Their Pumpkins

By Serge Bielanko |

Orange you glad we met?!

The mornings are getting cooler now.

It’s that time of year when we say goodbye to summer’s memories and turn our attentions to the return of autumn in all her autumnal splendor. And that can mean a lot of things, I guess, but one thing it definitely means is that it’s pumpkin time!

Parents of little kids are quick to return to pumpkins even if they had forgotten about them in all the years that have come and gone since they were young. It’s just a natural progression, really. We have that first baby, fall comes around, we see pumpkins showing up at the grocery store or out in the fields, and we just want to get our kiddo out there in the middle of a bunch of them.

It’s almost like Mother Earth is poking us after a long hiatus, saying,”Hey, don’t forget I’ve got something big and bright and awesome over here, you know??!!”

So it begins. We start a new love affair with the ‘Big Squash’ thanks to our kids, because, let’s face it, kids love pumpkins.

And kids are never wrong.

Picking Them Out

There's nothing better in autumn than picking out a pumpkin or five with your kids. It is almost as if it's the unofficial kickoff to a long season of holidays. And who doesn't love holidays?
