Pumpkin Picking

This is one of my favorite traditions in our family. You can tell from how many photos you are about to see.

pumppick13m Going to the pumpkin patch!

pumppick11m I am always amazed at how much thought goes into choosing something we will ultimately cut up.

pumppickm Seriously.

pumppick3m This year they were pretty picked over, but our girls managed to find a few to take home.

pumppickcornm That didn’t stop us from staying for about an hour.

pumppick12m It is the experience we love.

pumppickstackm You can’t tell from these photos, but I was actually surprised at how many people had the same idea on the same day!

pumppickoooohm This guy was fantastic!

pumppickpumm Do you have any Autumn traditions?

pumppick8mbw What is one of your favorite things about Fall?

I love the introspection.

And the colors.

  1. What a beauty of a post. Both introspection- and season-wise. 🙂 What is it about pumpkins that makes them so perfectly photogenic? Whatever it is, I’m a little jealous…(Imagine being jealous of a pumpkin!)

  2. We always, always go to the apple orchard and we almost always go to the pumpkin patch. Sigh – we didn’t make the pumpkin patch this year we’ve been so crazy busy I did pumpkin patch at the apple orchard.

    I love your photos – I love going to the same patch every year because it is neat to the continuity and change in the photos.
