Pumpkin Patch Fun!

You haven't really lived till you've visited a Pumpkin Patch with grandchildren!
What a bunch of fun...even though photographing the event is about as
easy as trying to herd cats!
Some Princesses cooperate fully...
 while others would rather play in the dirt!
 Sometimes, a little boy, who can't read, can have the best time
before his parent suddenly realizes why no other kids are doing the same thing....
And if he thinks that girls have cooties (cousins included), 
offering a disguise might help in the picture taking ....
either that, or just hang on to his hand!
Watching a cannon shoot pumpkins is a big attraction....
 as is the Pumpkin Chomping Dragon!
Everyone wants to watch that...even if it's a little bit scary!
The simple things in life truly are the best!
A merry heart doeth good like medicine, 
even when not everyone will look at the camera and smile!

I hope that you, too, are enjoying the blessings of autumn!
P.S. Ollie, we missed you, and hope that you feel better soon!


  1. What a great fun family day out! Since Halloween is not a celebrated holiday in Australia, we have nothing like that here (that I'm aware of).

  2. How fun! Thank you for sharing your pictures with us! I taught Pre-K after my elementary school years and we always took a field trip to the pumpkin patch. That is an experience too! Your post brings back such good memories.

  3. What a great way to spend your day! The grown-ups looked like they were having as much fun as the kiddos!

  4. What a beautiful family you have! Thanks for sharing your pictures with us! We are taking our two little ones to the pumpkin patch for the first time this year, and we can't wait!

  5. These are precious memories! The kids look like they had a ball.

  6. It looks like it was a lot of fun. Perfect weather, yes? Your pictures are great! No one expects to see a precise line-up of happy children's faces. Well, happy faces, yes. A line-up, impossible. You did well.

  7. I want to see a pumpkin chomping dragon!!! This looks like tons of fun!!! I loved going to the pumpkin patch when my girls were little :)

  8. I love the picture of them sitting on the pumpkins, too cute!

  9. what fun! I think Charlotte gets to go to the pumpkin patch on her first field trip--she is SO excited. So I might take Levi and a friend on our own personal field trip.
