Usher turned 32 years old yesterday (Thurs. Oct 14), and the R&B singer celebrated his birthday by taking both of his young sons (2-year-old Usher Raymond V aka “Cinco” and 1-year-old Naviyd) out for an afternoon of pumpkin picking at at the Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch in West Hollywood.

“Life can weigh you down, but children pump blood back into your heart. Their innocence gives you a reason to be open-minded, and they reignite your love for life,” Usher recently told USA Today of his sons. “My life isn’t the typical one, but that doesn’t mean I can’t be a traditional father, in my own way. My tradition is loving, being available for my kids. I didn’t have that from my father, so having it will give them greater potential.”
