The Great Pumpkin Race

My cousin and his family live up near Portland. I feel bad, because I am not used to having family close, and so I never remember to hang with them.
They really aren't siamese twins, just to let you know... hehe.

Well, they called this weekend, and wanted to hang at this great pumpkin race.
We jumped at the chance and drove 40 minutes away to the site of the race.

This race is pretty amazing. They have the HUGE pumpkins, carve out the innards, and then dump them in the lake to canoe in. It is a pretty funny race with people in full Halloween costumes.

We really enjoyed ourselves!

Are you kidding me?! Those are the biggest pumpkins I have ever seen, and this is the most random race I have ever seen! I wish I could have gone! :)
