Smashing Pumpkins

more info here on the event
Today Landon and I went with Jenny to the 2nd Annual Pumpkin Toss at Elkridge park.  Several teams of USU mechanical engineering students (and others) built enormous catapults and competed in distance and accuracy to see how well they could sling pumpkins (leftover from last weekend's Pumpkin Walk) across the park's field. And it was really fun to watch! They filled a few pumpkins with candy before sending them flying, so of course Landon left happily with his pockets filled to the brim.   I think it must have been the most unique fall activity I've ever been to -  and possibly even more entertaining than the scenes these pumpkins once filled :)
