Hanging around with cousin Aidan...

Cousin Ashton came along too.....by next year he will be running around on the playground....for now, he watched from the stoller. Look at that big smile...and those chubby cheeks!

After some fun at the park...We went with Aidan and Ashton to go pick a pumpkin

After only one visit to the pumpkin patch, Sarah thinks she has this pumpkin picking down to a science!

Sarah and Aidan are like two peas in a pod.....or in this case, two pumpkins in a patch!!

Holding hands for the long walk back to the wagon!

It was a bumpy ride down the hill....both kids were holding on for dear life....we were also being passed my a very large tractor!!

She wasn't leaving without one more to add to her collection!


Sarah had a great time playing with her cousins!! I feel very fortunate that my sister lives only 5 minutes away....this was a last minute get together, we just both happened to have some free time and none of the kids were napping....which usually never happens! One of three is usually fast asleep!

As we were leaving, I saw this great winery directly across the street from the pumpkin patch...I couldn't help but notice how beautiful the vineyards look at this time of year....

Looks like we found our next day trip, but this day trip will be for adults only........I see WINE TASTING in our future!

It looks like you had a fun fall day. The pictures are adorable. Your sister's boys are so stinkin' cute! I love their brown eyes.

Sarah looks soooo cute in her sweater!

Hope you get to the vineyard soon!

Beautiful photos, Lisa! I just love how you edited these. They are really dreamy looking.

Your nephews are too, too cute and Sarah is precious as always. She is styling in her sweater and jeans.

Glad you all had such a nice day!

How cute! I love that sweater..Okay...WHERE do you shop for your kids clothes????

I hope to go to a pumpkin patch when we are gone this weekend up to MI! I love fall in MI...maybe b/c it's my home state but I am excited to go home!

Have a great night!

Wine tasting- now that sounds like great fun! You know how to have fun, Lisa.

So wonderful that you and your sis can make plans even last minute and are so close. Nice that Sarah has cousins to grow up with.

sara said...

Your cousins are so handsome!!! & I LOVE their names!

Sharie said...

Aren't sisters the best! I'm lucky that 2 of my 4 live within 5 minutes of me:)
Those boys are the cutest! What a fun afternoon.

I love the two little pumpkins in a patch! They are so cute together! The photo editing you did with those photos is just beautiful! I wish you lived closer to me so I could hire you to take my daughter's Christmas photo! Seriously! :)

I love how you colorized the sweater, Lisa. It really makes the photo feel like fall.

Colleen said...

I love these pictures!!! Looks like such a wonderful day : ) I wish my family lived close by me. I miss them.

Michelle said...

Oooooo.....the black and white w/the orange pumpkin photos are stunning!

I'm so jealous that your sister lives 5 minutes away! My twin lives 7 hours from me and I wish so much that I could just call her every time I wanted to run to Target! :) I did manage to see her 8 times last year though, so we make it work.

Jennifer said...

Your pictures are beautiful. I love the black and white. You are very lucky to have your sister 5 minutes away. Her boys are beautiful.

Wine tasting sounds fun!

Paula said...

You are so lucky that your sister lives close and you're kids are close in age. That is perfect.
The pics are beautiful. I love the ones of them holding hands and in the wagon.

Jennifer said...

I LOVE your pictures! You do such a great job....The pumpkin patch looks like soo much fun! How wonderful that you are so close to your sister, that is a real blessing!

Michelle said...

awww....such sweet cousins! You had to wait so long for a nice weather day to go to the pumpkin patch and now you were able to have 2 in the same week. yay!!!

Annette said...

So adorable... your kids are so cute!!! Never tire of these fall photos.

Carol VR said...

Wine tasting sounds like fun. About three hours from us is probably the most known wine area around us in the "Niagara Falls" area. Perhaps one year....

Sherri said...

Lisa, these pictures are stunning.

I bet all those kids had a great nights sleep after no naps and fresh air!

Felicia said...

Oh what a blessing for your sisters to live so close. These pictures are great!

Denise said...

Beautiful pics! Can I ask how you get the color to stand out in the black and white pics. Can that be done with Photoshop? I have it, but do not know what I am doing!

Have a great weekend~

Shelly and Family said...

Count me in the the winery too lol!!! Lisa, the photos are amazing and I am so in love with Sarah...(how do you not kiss her 1000xs a day)! Anyway, I too live near my sister and it is so great when we are able to get together and enjoy some sisterhood bonding with the kids!!!

BTW...where did you get Sarah's sweater? OMG...I just love it!

CC said...

These are sooooooo fantastic!! You are great with photoshop (is that what you are using?). I only wish I could be this awesome. Any tutorials????

CC said...

ps: I just tagged you

Kayce said...

So beautiful! I love black and white pictures. It's so wonderful that your sis lives close by. Family is everything.
