Pumpkins, Pumpkins Everywhere!

One of my favorite fall events is our annual trip to the pumpkin patch.  I'm not sure why I enjoy it so much with the exorbitant prices, large crowds, a child that refuses to partake in any of the activities, but I do.  I guess I keep hoping Colin will one day enjoy it as much as I do.  There's just something about the crisp fall air, ample bright orange pumpkins, and kids running free that puts a smile on my face.  This was Sawyer's first experience and he shared in Colin's sentiments - he slept the entire time.

Initially, Colin refused to pose with the pumpkins (just as he refused to slide down the slide, play on the playground,  and ride the hayride) but he eventually warmed up a bit and posed with the scarecrow and rode the train.  All was not lost after all.

And someone had to ride the train with him.

Please notice the gut in this next picture.

The chosen pumpkin.

And Sawyer was there too (:


  1. Pierce has the same belly as Colin!! Too cute. Love Sawyer's hair! We are going to the pumpkin patch this year with my Mom - too bad she isn't coming until the weekend before Halloween! I wish it was earlier but I know she's going to love it!

  2. I LOVE going to the pumpkin patch, too! No idea why it's so fun, but it just is :) Your guys are adorable. I'm sure Colin will grow to love the fall fun like his mama! So fun to see Sawyer getting bigger... keep the pics coming!!
