Favorite Photo Friday - "Picking the Perfect Pumpkin"

October 5, 2012

Heart Jeans Fingers Crossed BLOG
Last Sunday we hit the pumpkin patch.

Pulling my Sister COLLAGE
I pulled the girls up the big hill in the wagon, but someone insisted she was big enough to pull it out into the field.

Pumpkin Searching Collage
Reags stopped the wagon when they saw an area that looked good and they both started to wander through the field.

Pulling the wagon to her sister BLOG
It didn't take too long before Sarah spotted one that she liked.....

Trying to Life COLLAGE
but it was a little bit heavier than she could handle, so she called in the "big guns" to help her hoist it up into the wagon.

It takes teamwork BLOG
A few giggles and a lot of teamwork and they got that pumpkin up off the ground and into our wagon.

Bright Sun Pumpkin Picking COLLAGE
After all that lifting, Reags needed a break, so this time, Sarah pulled the wagon back out of the field.
We were now on a mission to find some baby pumpkins!

Passing with a pumpkin BLOG
Baby pumpkins are more exciting to the girls than the big full sized ones. They go wild over these little ones.

Hand in the wagon with the pumpkin BLOG
They kept putting them in the wagon one at a time.

Reaching in the wagon COLLAGE
And before long, we had an entire wagon full.

Hearts up her leg Sarah in the background BLOG
31 to be exact!!!
I tried to convince the girls to put a few back, but they were not gonna budge, so we made our way to the check out counter.

hay bale corn maze blog
The girls enjoyed a quick run through the maze while I was paying for our pumpkins, we had a little snack, and then called it a day!!

The girls had a blast, but they sure were tired from all of that pulling and lifting!!
We only live a few minutes from this farm, but the girls were both fast asleep by the time we pulled in the driveway!

Hope everyone has had a wonderful week!
It has been sort of rainy and miserable here and I came down with a an upper respiratory thing. It started as a sore throat and now I have a terrible cough and no voice. Good thing it is Friday!!! As always, I am looking forward to a weekend and hoping it will be somewhat restful.

Enjoy your weekend~

the long road

Precious...Reagan is really 3 isn't she:) Love her determination. They remind me so much of Amelia and her cousin Katie...your photos take me back to when they were little.

Oh how darling Lisa!!!! I love places like that. Unfortunately there aren't any around here. So I will just enjoy seeing all your images from your day of fun.

Lisa these are PRECIOUS PICTURES!!! I don't think I ever seen Reagan in jeans!! OMG too cute!!! The "baby pumpkin" are a BIG HIT here as well with Bre. She oooohs and ahhhhs over the "babies" and windup with a wagon full. I can't wait until we make out visit, unfortunately ours is not a fantastic farm like the one above but a huge field on the side of a church who sells the pumpkin as a fundraiser every year. The "patch" if FULLY STOCKED and boast some of the biggest and yet unusual bunch of pumpkins and gourds. They have wooden cutouts for the kids to pose with. We are heading to Dallas to the WORLD FAIR next weekend and will visit the Arboretum. That makes for WONDERFUL PICTURES!! I also SCORED a rustic looking wagon from Hobby Lobby this past spring and can't wait to use it as a prop for the pictures!!
As always I enjoy your pictures IMMENSELY!! Hoping you feel better and have a wonderful and HEALING weekend!!

I am struck how big Reagan is getting. The baby is gone and that beautiful little girl has emerged. Sarah looks so grown up in her boots and leggings running through that field.

I love the story of sisterhood that is always told regardless of the task at hand in your images.

31 pumpkins? I imagine there may be a few headed to the boutique this weekend!

Hope you are feeling better today!

Have a wonderful weekend with your babies!

I just love all of these! The orange pumpkins and your girls' outfits make these photos so beautiful!

Mimi said...

Fabulous photos Lisa! I love how Reagan is minding the big pumpkin when she's being pulled in the wagon.She is getting very grown up; I'm thinking this is her 3rd pumpkin outing?
Both their outfits are adorable; Sarah looks so elegant in her leggings and boots, and she is such a fab big sis!
Sorry you're unwell, hope it doesn't ruin your weekend. Take it easy.

Going to the pumpkin patch is one of our very favorite things to in the fall! It looks like a great place - LOVE the wagons!! Your girls are just to adorable!!

Laurie said...

Lisa, I love these pic and had to laugh out loud when I read that Sarah brought in "The Big Guns."

I was just thinking looking at these pictures how remarkable it is that you and Pat brought these two little ones together. It is so clear that they have a special sister bond.

Feel better soon...

Eva said...

Lisa, you know why I love this series?...because you put the girls in pink to pick pumpkins!!!! Love that!!! These are so fun. I love their teamwork, too! Fun fun times.

Enjoy your weekend. I hope you're feeling better soon!
