Gourds a plenty.

So, my absolute favorite time of the year is now. Yes, fall. It’s glorious. It’s orange. It’s leafy and vibrant. Plus, it’s the beginning of all things cool – Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and the all important Guy Fawkes Night. How many of us look forward to this night all year long? I know I do.

In Celebration of the season, the husband and I took Anna to her first pumpkin patch. Last year she was a little wee one, and mom was not feeling up to a trek in the pumpkin patch. This year it was ON. Pumpkin time. The best time! Below are a few pics from our fun day! Enjoy.

Here is Anna on the way to the pumpkin patch. She’s holding her “cell phone” since she’s nearly broken mine 2,000 times.

Here’s one part of the pumpkin patch. Notice that horse – he stood stiff like that all day long. I was impressed.

Anna was not too fond of this hat. It stayed on for 1.2 seconds.

I love the fall even though it was about 100 degrees that day!

Doesn’t Anna look thrilled?

Here I am cheesing it up. Anna is unsure.

Here’s Anna taking her hat off again.

On again.

Off again.

In the pumpkins. Notice the hat is off. I guess we know who won this battle.

Where’s Anna?

Anna likes the filthy pumpkins best.

Yo, mom, what’s that?

Here I am trying to teach Anna to be gentle with the animals.

And here she is hitting the baby donkey. We still have some work to do on this.

The donkey decided to move at that point. Wise choice.

Some big jumpy thing.

Of course I had to try it out. Oh, it was like being on a gas grill on the 4th of July. That lasted all of 2 seconds before I melted into a puddle.

Anna found a pumpkin she liked.

Daddy found a pretty pumpkin, too. One that was less infested with fleas and ticks.

Look at the fleas and ticks, Anna.

Let me see, dad.


Ok, I like your pumpkin better then.

Ok, I’m pooped. Time to go!

Dude- Anna is too cute. And I love that you love Guy Fawkes Day!! He is a distant relative of mine- ha! And was hanged on my birthday- go figure! I just had to add that. We're not exactly PROUD to have him as a limb on the tree, but it is pretty cool :)
