I love fall in Idaho. The weather is awesome and the scenery is gorgeous.
Late Monday afternoon was no exception. The girls and I found ourselves home by 5:00 and nothing was on the agenda for the evening, so we headed over to a local pumpkin patch to select our pumpkins for the year.
We hadn't been to the pumpkin patch since I went back to work, so this was a big treat for us.
The only thing I could have asked for was two girls to not be acting like total dorks.
They make it very difficult for me to get frame worthy pictures.
The light was perfect for fall pictures. Too bad it wouldn't last long.
The pumpkins were four for $20, so we picked the biggest ones we could find.
And there were a lot to choose from.
I took this picture of Stinkerbell four years ago at the pumpkin patch.
And this one of Zoe Bug.
I was crossing-my-fingers-hoping to get some similar shots this year, but they just weren't feelin' it.
Stinkerbell liked this pumpkin with the warts on it, so I told her she should kiss it. She wasn't interested.
I love that the pumpkin patch has wagons for us to borrow, because there was no way we were going to be able to carry our behemoth pumpkins to the car.
Just pulling the wagon was a chore in itself.
I'm afraid to see the quantity of pumpkin guts inside these babies. We're saving that chore for next weekend.
This here is our little Bunnery Sergeant. The girls have buried him in leaves.
I'd like to say that he was a good sport about it, but if you look closely you can see that they've tied him to the tree to keep him from running.
I'd scold them, but it's totally something I would do myself.
Poor little Bunny Man.
Don't worry, he didn't stay there long. As soon as I snapped these pictures he stood up and gave us all a leaf bath.
It was pretty impressive the way he scattered the leaves hither and tither.
