Pickin' Pumpkins

While Aunt Christine was here we went to the pumpkin patch!! This year's experience was a little different than last year. Oh, my heart. How can it already be a year since we spent a month living in Pennsylvania? You may remember the picture of Ian lying on top of the baby pumpkins last year in his pumpkin hat. 
No sir! This year he was not relaxing at all. This year he made himself busy! There was no time to waste. He lifted every pumpkin he could, even trying to dead-lift the one in the following pictures...

 Then he walked all of the way to the pumpkin patch. Aunt Christine & Jim graciously indulged me by taking our Christmas pictures in the Christmas trees on the way there. Those pictures will be posted in a few months (sorry!). Of course, Ian proceeded to fall straight in the mud, covering one whole leg with mud. I responded perfectly by blaming Jim. Not my finest moment. And, in the end, you can't even tell in the pictures.

The fall leaves were so beautiful. The pumpkin patch, at Joe's Trees, is nestled in the mountains with a 360 degree view just like the one seen in the background of this picture. Breathtaking. Have I ever mentioned how much I love this area?
Pointing at Papa

Ian kept picking at the tire treds. 

Not quite as good as apples, eh?
Our pumpkins.

Fun on the hay bales...

Papa was giving Ian raspberries. Ian kept leaning in with a smile for more.
Christine picked a few squash blossoms and fried them up later. So good!
Pumpkins in tow, we boarded the hay ride.
Ian's first hay ride! (The woman in pink was actually one of the nurses in the midwife practice!)
Until next year, pumpkin patch. We'll certainly be returning.
