Festive fall fun!

Today the boys and I visited the pumpkin patch with our preschool friends. Lucky for us, the weather was gorgeous.

BB picking a pumpkin
Big Bear pretty much picked the first pumpkin he saw. I swear, it is becoming impossible to catch this boy a.) looking at the camera and b.) smiling. It's like he has a sixth sense to look away and/or frown whenever the camera is pointed in his direction.

The pumpkin patch was a lot of fun-- there was a petting area with farm animals, a hay maze (with a big slide at the end), tractors, a hay ride, ice cream, a playground, and (of course) a fabulous pumpkin patch. After just a couple hours, we were beat!

And there's even a picture of me and Little Bear-- a rare event! (Thank you, Danielle!)

Meanwhile, in crafting land, I've been busy working on costumes.

The cutting is complete (yay!), so now I can start doing the fun stuff-- the actual sewing!


  1. How fun to see such adorable picturess of you and your boys! I can't wait to see pictures of their Halloween costumes. Here in Alabama, our pumpkin patches also include big "pools" of cotton bolls that kids can jump in like snow because cotton harvesting is going on now.

  2. Great pictures! The boys are getting so big.

  3. Love the picture of you! You look great and I never would have guessed you have some sleepless nights :)

  4. Fun! Isn't the weather treating us well?
    We visited the arboretum and Japanese garden this week and it was stunning!
    Love Fall in Seattle (when it's not raining).
    Love rain too, though...
    (the photo of you and the little one is lovely)

  5. Oh, I remember those days. We have a farm around here that lets school children come pick out pumpkins. They always had so much fun.
    Little bear is getting to be big. A very cute picture of you two.

  6. Looks like a great day! I'm just catching up on my blog reading, so I hope the costumes are going well!
