Favorite Photo(s) Friday - "The Pumpkin Patch"

October 7, 2011

Pumpkin Carts Collage
I should have picked just one or two photos from the pumpkin patch to post as my favs and left it at that, but I can never choose....... so I am posting all of them!

Get Your Arm Off of Me BLOG
We have been going to the same pumpkin patch for as long as I can remember and we love everything about it, especially the fun wagons they let you use to go up into the field to haul your pumpkins...... or your standing children:)

Which way to the pumkin patch BLOG
Sarah was a little bewildered because usually there are many more pumpkins out in the field. Unfortunately, the ridiculous amount of rain we have had this season has really hurt the farmers. We saw the affects of it when we went to the apple orchard and we saw it again when we arrived at the pumpkin patch. It was slim pickins.

I've picked the winner BLOG
Sarah did find one that she thought was perfect, although she needed a little help hoisting it into our wagon.

Caught in the vines BLOG
I think our girl Reags enjoyed apple picking more than pumpkin picking. She kept getting tangled up in the vines and decided she would rather stay put in the wagon.

In the wagon coming down the path BLOG
We didn't last long up there in the "patch", it was bitterly cold, so we made our way back down the big hill to check out all of the other stands.

Baby Pumpkin Pickin BLOG
Sarah went running up to the big table of baby pumpkins.....

Orange Mini Pumpkin in Hand BLOG
and started picking.

Picking Mini Pumpkins BLOG
Then she had some company:)

Pick a good one reags BLOG
I am almost embarrassed to say how many bags of baby pumpkins they picked and we purchased......(good thing they were very inexpensive) but they sure had fun and no one was tripping and getting tangled in vines, so all was good in our world!!

Striped Pumpkin BLOG
While the girls were picking their teeny tiny pumpkins, there were a few things that caught my eye. I really thought these striped ones were so pretty, so I added these to our wagon.

Orange Mum BLOG
and the mum obsession continues. I am printing the photo I posted two weeks ago, but I needed another photo to hang with it, so I captured a few more!!

Reddish Mum BLOG

Mums about to bloom BLOG
These are about to bloom and I thought the color was so bold and vibrant....so beautiful!

Yellow Delicious BLOG
Our wagon was overflowing at this point, so we went into the little country store to check out.....

Strawberry Jam BLOG
and found ourselves surrounded by more goodies!

Helping Reagan Climb the Hay Bales BLOG
It was an all around fun fall morning.......
and if I really had to choose my favorite photo, I would say this would be the one!
I never tire of watching these two in action together.
When they are together it's as if nothing could stand in their way and they can conquer the world.
The bonds of sisterhood..... they are strong and beautiful!
Happy Friday Everyone.
Enjoy your weekend!

What a pleasure on a Friday evening (time difference!) to look through your photos - they truly are all so lovely. The last one is the most precious - how wonderful that they relate so beautifully to one another, must make your heart melt constantly.

I feel like I say this so often to you but it's sincere...I love them ALL, but the last one is just precious, Lisa.
The shot of them standing in the wagon made me giggle.

We're hoping to get to our local pumpkin patch this weekend, will see if that happens. It's Indian Summer here now.

What a delightful time- I absolutely adore that black & white of the girls in the wagon. You have inspired me to find some pumpkins - somewhere :) Also- those flowers- I have been wanting to get some captures similar to these for some large canvases on some particularly large walls I have been wanting to fill with just the right pic. I'm inspired!

Misty said...
