The Great Pumpkin

One of my favorite things to do with the kids in the Fall is go to the pumpkin patch.  This was the first year I actually felt comfortable letting them trot around and it was so nice!  We ended up going a couple of times because Herrick Farm's is so close to us.  When we went for our friend Ellice's birthday it was the most perfect weather!  I am a huge fan of summer, but its days like these that make me love fall even more. 

The kids had a blast.  It was also the first year that we implemented the "you have to carry your own pumpkin" rule.  We have been going to the pumpkin patch with this group of friends since Jamon was four months old!  What a great tradition. Each year, there are more kids on the hay bails and it gets more difficult to take a "nice" family or group picture.  Nonetheless, it is still a highlight every year. 

These three boys' dads have all been best friends since early elementary school.  What a blessing! 

Jamon at 5.  It didn't take him long to choose a pumpkin. 

Josie at 3 years old.  She really wanted a huge pumpkin but settled for this more reasonable one.
