Pumpkin Patch at Spooner Farms



In the Northwest, if the weather is good on any Saturday in October, you go to the pumpkin patch. You can't hold out for the weekend closest to Halloween as it might be pouring down rain...and no one likes picking out pumpkins in a mud pit. So last Saturday was it...beautiful weather, 65 degrees, and just a little mud. There are dozens of pumpkin patches around here, but we have gone to the same one each year. The kids love the hay maze, the animals, the displays, and goodie shop. Don't you just love little places like this outside of suburbia? We ran into several families from church and probably half the population of Washington too. We had a great time like we do every year and ended up with a haul of pumpkins ...137 pounds to be exact.

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion pictures...it is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?
