The Pumpkin Patch

We have a Pumpkin Patch right outside of town, so Marcia and I took the girls today to pick out their pumpkins.

It was a little windy, so I didn't get any stellar pictures, but with our weather, we just have to seize any opportunity we can to get our pumpkins early.  Some years it's too wet, and I'm not a fan of mucking around in the mud.

I have dirt issues.  

Thing 1 is in a tries too hard picture face phase.  She can't relax and smile naturally to save her life.

The wind isn't helping her any.

Thing 2 gave up waiting for me to help her with her pumpkin.

Hey, I was trying to catch the Kodak moment.  Somebody has to do it.

Whew, all that work.  They must be tired.

"Okay, put 'em all back.  I got my pictures, let's go."

Ha, ha, ha.  I let them keep two.

Thing 1 is being a goofball and Thing 2 was all about the business of getting the job done.

Ready to go.

Aunt Marcia finally relented and let me snap a picture of her with the girls.  She thinks I'm going to post her picture on my blog or something.  Geesh.

The maze of hay bales was the most fun.  Except my monsters are little cheaters.  Do you see them climbing over the walls?

These are my pictures from last year.  It was a gorgeous, windless day, so I got much better pictures.
