{Pumpkin Patch x3}

I visited the pumpkin patch three times in October.  We went to our two local favorites + an additional trip with Ry's preschool.  We've been going to these places for years and the kids would declare mutiny if didn't fit it in each year.  
First up was Maris Farms.  We always go mid-week to avoid the crowds. There is SO much for the kids to do!  

 Miles loved feeding the goats!

And the picturesque spot close to home: Spooner Farms.  They also have the best pumpkin selection!

I braved the corn maze with these 4 by myself. Major miracle right there. We got about 3/4 through and finally went out the entrance.  It was a Monster's inc theme with various punch card station. Rylan just ate that up and all the "doorways" throughout the maze.  

And then with Rylan's preschool class we went back to Maris Farms.  
 Love when I get one on one time with this kiddo!

Very successful pumpkin patch season!  We feel so blessed to live near these fantastic local spots!

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?

More about me here.
