The Great Pumpkin

It is an annual tradition for our family to go to the pumpkin patch. Four of the five years we have gone we go to a small, family owned farm not too far from where we live and I love to bring them our business. They are so friendly, they remember us year after year, and they have a good selection of gourds. Below are a few photos of our trips to the pumpkin patch since 2004:

2004: Cornelius Family Farm

Our daughter was just 5 months old, and a bit grumpy in this photo.

2005: Davis Family Farm
Our daughter was 17 months old. It was a lot cooler and greener at this patch.

2006: Cornelius Family Farm

Our daughter was almost 2 1/2 and was really getting into pumpkin hunting.

2006: Our family portrait. You can't tell in this photo, but we had a little pumpkin of our own on his way.

2007: Cornelius Family Farm

Our daughter was almost 3 1/2 and our son was 7 months old. I love how sweet they are here.

2007: Our family portrait. I love this shot; we used it in our Christmas cards last year.

2008: Cornelius Family Farm

Our daughter is almost 4 1/2 and our son is 19 months. Silly kids!

2008: Our family portrait. Toward the end of the day the kids got tired and crabby and the sun was intense. We don't plan to use this photo for our Christmas card this year!

Year after year we have good memories of our pumpkin hunts, and it is so fun to look back and see how our family has changed over time. I can hardly wait until next year ...

Fun memories! I still cannot believe how round a certain little girl used to be!

Yup, she used too look like one of those pumpkins, she was so round!

Very cool photos. I live way up North in BC and I grew up in Manitoba and have never had the opportunity to go to the "pumpkin patch" and feel a little bit deprived and like I need to live it vicariously through others.
