Pumpkin Patch 2009: Part 1

It just isn't fall without a trip (or two) to the pumpkin patch. Oh, how I love pumpkins and mums on my porch. Though it seems as if I kill just about every mum I come in contact with. Grr. Doesn't matter as long as I keep growing my lil garden of girls.... I will be just fine.

You can obviously see her excitement as Daddy is bringing her own to hold. Oh yes. Unfortunately, we did not leave with any today. We got there right before closing yet it was closed. I guess they thought who would Really want to get out in the rain to get pumpkins?
This is Ay's third year at the pumpkin patch. She loves it. Actually, when we come in the spring for flowers she asks where the pun-kins are. Today was much different than I remember last year. Actually last year at this time it was warm enough to still be in short sleeves- and distinctively remember dressing her in a long sleeve shirt because it was more fall-ish. We didn't have to worry about that today. It was cold & drizzley. If she wasn't so cute we probably would have put it off. But, as soon as Jeff walked in the door she ran into his arms exclaiming "Punkins Daddy!"
