Pumpkin Patch

Nothing says fall quite like the pumpkin patch.  I just LOVE it.  And when it comes to pictures, the colors at a pumpkin patch are just divine.  By that, I mean the sky colors and air...well, the little faces just photograph so well in the great outdoors during fall...might as well mix in some orange and green with it, right?! 

We went out to Applejack Pumpkin Patch again.  Maybe we will mix it up a little next year, but you can't beat a good deal.  Once again, Living Socials gave us another good one!  They really do a great job of making it worth your time.  I've decided we need to pack a lunch and go during lunchtime in the future!  It was CRAZY busy when we got there, but after an hour, lunch came and all the schools left!  Perfect opportunity to have the place to ourselves!  They have swingsets, trains, tricycles, jumping pillow, hill slides, and of course the pumpkin patch itself ;)

Her are my "angels."  They certainly looked the part here!

Doesn't this picture look so Kansas-esque?!  Almost like a tornado could be photoshopped into the background!  Not that I would wish that upon the moment at all, but the colors feel like Kansas...
This is about as good as it got.  You should have seen the previous shots!  I can't remember what bribe I used to finally stop Evelynn's meltdown.  I had such high hopes, before I became a parent, that I wouldn't succomb to bribes...that lasted about two seconds after I became a mom.  Is it possible not to?  Really?! 

Our beloved neighbors...

This is how much Lydia enjoyed her first trip to the pumpkin patch!

I hate that we lose track of time and oftentimes do not give subsequent children the same amount of attention.  That being said, it is what it is, and all we can do it try harder.  Here are some of Lydia.  What a sweet soul.  Truly...

Do you feel your heart melting looking into those precious eyes?

I wish I had so much more time to do just this.  I think I have decided I need to be a baby rocking volunteer at a hospital when I grow up :)

Look at those rolls!  That much more to love.

Her smiles are just too much.  And she loves to smile.

I could look at her all day...
