Pumpkin Patch, Part One

Get ready for lots of pix of pumpkins! Something I'm totally sure you have not seen AT ALL the past week all over the internets. Not only am I going to inflict our Pumpkin Patch Pix upon you, I'm going to do it twice, because I have too much pumpkin to fit into one post.

We drove far far out into the country to go find pumpkins that looked.....just the same as any other pumpkin! (only some of them were green, which was cool.) Our friends who had the most beautiful summer wedding came with us. It was sunny, and grey, and cloudy, and then shooting beams of sunlight came out at the end of the day.

I pretended I was in Ireland.

Julia rode a pony, drank cider, ate corn, and found tiny little mini gourds.

Come back next week to see if my cow pictures turned out. We also saw Very Noisy Cows.

  1. LOL at your Ireland mention. Julia looks so happy on her pony! A pony ride is what I always hear kids want but my boy didn't even want to try the last time we saw one! Thanks for the pictures, they are really lovely! I think I'll take my kids to a pumpkin patch when the baby gets older. Like next year when she can walk.

    1. Julia is not crazed for horses, but she seemed happy to ride on the pony. In general, she said she had the best time at a pumpkin patch ever :)

      And what fun you'll have as your baby grows!

  2. These are my favorite kinds of days... really, is there anything better than a day in the country?

    Melissa, you've done such a masterful job capturing Julia's sparkle in these photos. Someday you should consider doing a post with tips for photographing kids. I find myself happy if everyone is just *looking* at the camera these days. Everyone smiling? Hahahaha! Yeah, that's a good one! ;)

    1. That's a lovely idea Michelle! I'll either do one here, or on my photo site, when I get it up. I just did a session the other day and 2/3 of the kids were smiling, while the baby was bawling. Personally, I think that's awesome. I'm lucky that my kid lives to emote for my pix, (these days her favorite thing is to "look mystical"), but I have had a few kids lately where I was crawling on the ground working for it, trying to even see their eyes!

  3. I love pumpkin patch pictures. I'm still so upset about missing Little Sis's pumpkin patch field trip. I'm hoping I can fit a patch trip in this weekend. Are those samples of acorn squash I see? Love the ponies.

    1. I think they had every kind of squash, gourd and/or pumpkin known to man. Guess what, speaking of squash. A friend recently made me roasted delicata squash. it's one of the best things I've ever had!!

  5. Oh! These pictures are just so fabulous!!! (and underneath Julia's fingernails is so clean- I'm totally impressed.) You're pictures are really to die for (and the ones on FB today of that little girl, SO GREAT!) This totally looks like the very very perfect fall day, no questions asked. Beautiful.

    1. oh man, I saw that her nails needed trimming and was like, yay me for immortalizing my lack on-the-ball nail cutting on the blog! But at least they're clean! tee hee
