Eliza couldn't be tricked, though. After reading several books on how pumpkins grow, she immediately asked, "But where is the green vine?' We decided it wasn't too much fun walking on corn stalks and picked out a pumpkin pretty quickly.
After posing for pictures, we measured Eliza's height (she is 3 pumpkins tall) and headed to Walmart (which you can clearly see in the background) to buy pink paint.
Eliza is pretty determined to have a pink pumpkin that looks like Foofa (from Yo Gabba Gabba). I am the least crafty person around, so we'll see how it turns out. Maybe I can get it to look something like the below picture if I am lucky.
