Gosh I love the pumpkin patch. First time I went Zachary was about 20 months old and Lily was less than 2 months old, strapped to me in the little carrier. I'd like to find the photograph that a friend took of me and my tiny clan back then!
It was a cold and windy day, and little Violet wanted to be snuggled the whole time...
(no babies were harmed* in the taking of this 1 second photo)
this day, and this girl (even wearing the same jacket!)
Pumpkin donuts rounded out our trip. Admittedly, it was quite a process to get here this year. There was only one potential day that worked and it still involved picking the kids up early from school, packing soccer practice gear, taking two separate cars, and sticking to a tight schedule. I suppose it is the season we've entered with our family. There is always something to miss about the old days, and yet the new things that have come our way are just as gratifying, and I'm sure I will miss them too once they've passed.
