The Obligatory Pre-Halloween Visit to the Pumpkin Patch

We unintentionally visited the pumpkin patch at our local garden store when we went to get vegetables for our winter garden on Saturday. Today, a couple of my friends invited me along and this time I came prepared with my camera.

Neither of the kids were much in the mood to cooperate for photos. I had to laugh because on Saturday (when I did not have my camera) I was observing other parents trying to get their yearly pumpkin patch photos. Before the picture perfect moments, there were a lot of threats being doled out by moms trying to get their kids to cooperate. I have to admit, I fell into this camp as well. "Jude, NO, you may NOT put your hand over your sister's mouth. Just please cooperate! Now SMILE!!!!!" Here's what I got:


  1. Ohhhhhhhhhh, what sweet pumpkins!! (and the kids are cute too! Ha ha!) Sarah =)

  2. who needs smiles? They are adorable!


  3. So very cute! Cute story too! :)
    I have resorted to brides before and desperate pleas...LOL...
    Your kiddos are darling...Love Indi's shoes!
    Lisa C.

  4. that is so funny that you resorted to the "mom language." i know i've said this before but indi is GORGEOUS!!!!!!!

  5. THOSE ARE ADORABLE!! And I had to laugh - we had a nightmare at the pumpkin patch - and I think half the other moms there looked as tired as I was!!! :)

    The things we do for a the obligatory photos... haha. :)


    PS Thank you for posting the site button for us!!!! We appreciate it so much. :)

  6. Oh Rachel, I'm SO with you! It's impossssssible to get great pics-i've thought of a few sneaky tricks such as hiding a toy in my shirt and poking it up over the collar peeking out at them before taking the picture-they laugh and laugh! HEY, we'll do anything right!?!?
