I look forward to the pumpkin patch all year.
I don't know what it is, but it always feels like magic to me (even in dreary, not-so-magical-for-pictures-weather like yesterday).
And even with a 16 year old who doesn't really feel the 'magic' anymore but goes anyhow just to make his mom happy.
And I have zero issues with the fact that I totally planned the girl's outfits...I left the boys alone though.
Our pumpkin picking motto is 'If you can carry it, you can have it' which is the only reason Courtney Lee didn't end up bringing this one home with her.
Coley found his pumpkin.
And Courtney settled for a smaller (but still lovely) pumpkin.
And Annie found one too (she picked the warty looking pumpkin).
And I know it's rare to see one of Annie's babies with clothes on (it's a knee pad and it's the only thing she will dress her babies in).
The tall one is mine, the one on top of it is Josh's and the one in front is Coley's.
That tree is 140 years old.
A game of tag in the flower garden.
Face-painting (Courtney got a flower and Coley got a bat).
Checking things out.
Avoiding the camera.
Pony rides (which Annie was excited to do until she actually got on the pony).
A miniature horse-drawn carriage ride.
I swear I stopped her as soon as I realized she was trying to poke the pony's eye out.
Some more horseback riding.
Some pouting. (Because what trip would be complete without a little pouting?)
And some goofing off.
That's Ross hiding upside-down in a tire.
And Josh Downs on top of the tire while Coley was hiding inside it.
And then some lunch at Bella Union before heading home.
Annie wielding a butter knife.
And Coley getting ready for his pizza.
