{Pumpkin Patch #1 --- Spooner Farms}

It's a family tradition ... blogged many times on our little blog.  We wouldn't miss it!  We love Spooner Farms and even though we picked the busiest Saturday ever, we loved being in the sunshine!  I would take a busy, over-crowded pumpkin patch in the sun any day over an empty, muddy one.  I love how we really have roots here in Washington now and these annual adventures are so looked forward to by the fam.

It's mostly about the pictures, right?

I would never attempt the corn maze by myself.  Trevor is the best maze guide...I don't think we took one wrong turn!

I just realized that Ry wore this same jacket last year.  I guess he hasn't grown much.  Except in attitude.  But he sure was excited about the corn maze...walking most of the 2 mile trek.  He was so tired that night!

We left with 100 pounds of pumpkins for carving, several smaller pumpkins and gourds for decorating, my favorite caramel apples, and a half-flat of freshly picked raspberries.  This is the first year that Spooner Farms still had raspberries on in October.  We have our late spring to thank for that...not sure if that was worth it, but the raspberries were sure good!

How Fun! I love all your pictures. I bought a bunch of raspberries a couple of weeks ago on sale and I made Pioneer Woman's raspberry cream pie it was amazing, just in case you are looking for ways to use your raspberries.

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 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?

More about me here.
