The Pumpkin Patch

The rain stayed away, the temperature was perfect, and the sun even poked it's head out of the clouds. We had so much fun at the pumpkin patch this weekend.

And by we, I mean, me, Mike, Drew, Jackson, Grandma Debbie, and Lightning McQueen. Notice the little red car in Jackson's hand.

Jackson refuses to go anywhere without a car in his hand, and most of the time it has to be Lightning McQueen. This made it a little difficult for Jackson to pick up pumpkins and eventually he figured out that it would be a lot easier without McQueen in his hand. I was surprised he handed him over and spent the rest of the day without a his usual car companion.

Drew's threw us for a loop this year and was actually really excited to go pick out a pumpkin.  

Usually he's is so eager to do all the other activities at the patch that he's a little hesitant to do the pumpkin part. This year he told us, "I'm going to find the best pumpkin in the whole patch!" I think the expression on his face in the picture above tells me he found it.

Reminder: Today is the last day to enter the November guest designer call. I've been so surprised with how many entries I've gotten. You guys aren't making this one easy on me at all! 

Happy Monday!

Jackson is so big and cute. I remember him small and chubby with tons of hair. Glad all was fun at the pumpkin patch. Drew is happy for sure. Thanks for sharing with us.

Love the photos....anxiously awaiting the layouts with the photos.

I think I need photography lessons from you. I have a nice Nikon but my photos aren't this good.

Jackson is growing up! Love the car story. I can so relate to that. My "baby" is turning 9 next week and I miss those days. :(

Such cute photos! My little one always wants to pick "1" toy to take with him but he had gone through a phase where it was a little bus every time. :)
