We took last weekend to go to the pumpkin patch. It was supposed to be the last of the sunny days before a week long stretch of rain came. Said rain is here along with flood warnings, but enough of the rain, and on to the pumpkin patch!
Upon arrival, I was thankful for the suggestion to wear my rainboots because it was quite muddy. But the tractor was no worse for wear.
Auntie shared some James love as we took turns carting him through the field...making stops to pick up rocks, and other treasures at his request.
We were given a wagon and told to pick out whatever we'd like, so we tromped through the field searching for the perfect pumpkins.
The guys had matching romeos on and I couldn't resist a picture.
Grandad and Grandma showed up to pick out some for their front porch, and for snuggles with their favorite (only) grandson.
We were able to snag a family photo too! And I think this one deserves a frame.
There is no hope for any of our kiddos to have their eyes show when smiling.
Have you gone to the pumpkin patch yet? Any fall traditions you especially look forward to?
Because I'm sure you'd love to see pictures from someone else's vacation, here is part II of this summer's roadtrip! A major reason or driving force behind this trip was Yosemite...John Muir's wilderness. Here we have the view coming from the Southern entrance of Half Dome, and El Capitan.
The California oaks were absolutely gorgeous!
This girl was another reason to visit Central California. We wandered through the very dry grass looking for acorn caps, and it was wonderful.
Around the park, with Brad and baby, El Capitan was peeking through the trees.
We ended up doing a majority of the day in the car because the heat was pretty unbearable.
James wasn't too thrilled to be out in the heat either, but the car wasn't his favorite that day either...So we'll see if he turns out to be a roadtripper or not. This is one of the top 25 things Brad and I wanted to do when we first met. Check that one off!
