Pumpkin Patch Paparazzi

October 5, 2008

We have been trying to get to the pumpkin patch for the past three weekends and the weather had not been cooperating with us......until today!! It was a beautiful day....so we packed up and headed out!

I better apologize now for the abundance of photos.....I looked like the "Pumpkin Patch Paparazzi" out there....I took over 100 pictures....OK, I admit, I went a little overboard, but it was so pretty I couldn't help myself! Take a look.....

Mackenzie, Sarah, and Delaney eating fresh picked apples!

Instead of looking at the camera...Sarah was scoping out her next victim...I mean pumpkin!

My creation
Look at those mums....aren't they just beautiful!

Sarah ate an apple with skin for the first time....look at her face...she was not so sure at first, but she did eat it!

This is the aerial shot of the corn maze that we went through....They had 12 questions along the way...every question had two answers to pick from, one right answer and one wrong....if you picked the wrong answer, you moved in the wrong direction and eventually hit a dead end! Let's just say, we didn't get all the answers correct....the maze took as much longer than anticipated....

Our house is less than a mile from this cornmaze and nursery....we are just a little to the right of this corn field..

My creation
More pumpkin picking!

Sarah's prized posession....a gourd!

A baby pumpkin for my baby girl!

I think I can hold this myself....maybe not!

The long road home.....someone didn't want to leave...she was catching one last glimpse as she was pulled away....


I was totally inspired by some of the fall foliage today....I found myself taking pictures of things other than children.....everything around us is changing so I started clicking away....I got some beautiful shots...I will be posting those another day.....I think I already pushed my luck with the amount of photos I included already!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

WOW, how lucky to be so close. I'd be over there every nice day shooting pictures of your adorable kids. What a beautiful back-drop.
I love Sarah's little outfit. She's always stylin'
I also love how you do the color on black and white. What program are you using for that?

Love the expression on Sarah's face when she is holding her prize pumpkin! Such a cutie. You got some beautiful shots- that farm is lovely and I am so glad that you had a nice fall weather day to attend. Looks like you so enjoyed your day.

Forget our dinky little pumpkin patch here... with a few wisps of hay around the pumpkins... I am coming up to your place.. between the two of us we can fill a few memory sticks... hehe

Looks like you guys had a great time! Love Sarah's outfit, isn't so much fun dressing them, till they get old enough to tell you no to what you have picked out.

Sarah is soooooooo adorable!!! What a cutie pie!!!

My stomach has been fine the last few days, which lulls me into that false sense of security, then wham!! it comes back when I least expect it. I'm waiting for the tests results from tuesday and hopefully all is fine!!!!

missy said...

Pushing your luck with too many pictures...HELLO, do you know us bloggers? : ) We live for your photos...especially when they involve your two cutie pies!!!

The farm you visited is just beautiful. I love mums! Sarah looked so cute eating her apple and I love her gourd! What is it with young ones and gourds?

I'm glad you had such a great day with your family. Can't wait to see your other photos.

What gorgeous pictures! Looks like you had a blast! I wish the leaves were changing here in GA - it doesn't happen really until late Oct/early Nov.

I am taking Bri to a pumpkin patch this Sat! I am so excited!

Don't worry about all the pictures you took. Just got back from Chattanooga - 378 pictures. I have a problem...

I LOVE this time of year! Looks like fun was had by all. Sarah looks so sweet and looks like she had fun.

No wonder you took so many pictures....The pumpkin patch and surrounding area are gorgeous, not to mention your yummy baby girl.

Sigh...

I have never seen such an incredible corn maze either...My boys would love that!

Have a great day!
God Bless,
Amy:)

We just went through a corn maze on Saturday, what a blast, we were so lost(never will I admit this to Superman)almost needed our GPS to navigate our way to the end.
What a great day you had, the pics are great. :)

Carol VR said...

How cool to find a blogger so close to home. One thing for sure, if I lived closer I'd be borrowing your hairdresser.

I'm thinking of going short and love that style... just how much work is it???

Annette said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm glad you did 'cuz it lead me to yours! What great photos from the pumpkin patch. I know what you mean, I can get carried away with the pictures too... especially of fall scenery.

Michelle said...

BEAUTIFUL!!! I'm so glad to hear you finally got to go. I know you had been looking forward to it. You have an adorable little pumpkin picker. I love your use of spot color, and those mums are gorgeous!

Heather said...

Gorgeous!!! Love the pictures and - they are each one magnificent for lots of reasons. We did the pumpkin patch on Sunday and though I didn't get quite as many as you did;), I did get some really cute ones, I haven't even uploaded them yet - bad blogger mommy:)

Thank you for sharing your beautiful girl with us!

Hugs,
Heather
