Farewell Harvest

       Before the harvest is forgotten and snow officially takes over, I wanted to share pictures of our trip to the pumpkin patch (of sorts). We wanted to take Nolan to pumpkin patch heaven, which is about 2 hours from us, but we've decided that our guy doesn't do so well on any drive over an hour so we stayed local. Our town hosted a pumpkin patch and harvest festival at the local community center and the ten minute drive suited us much better.
I really didn't want to buy our pumpkins at the grocery store, 
so we came home with two. 
There was lots of fall goodness to enjoy.
Like two boys in plaid shirts.
We ran in to so many people that we knew
(and so many people that knew Nolan- from daycare).
It made us feel old, and settled.

We have really been hitting the family photo jackpot lately. 
A friend that we ran into volunteered to take one for us.
It's a cold snowy November weekend here
and our pumpkins now have a coat of white. 
Now, holiday season anxiety is setting in. 
The other day I asked the clerk at the grocery store 
if she would kindly remove all of the Christmas goodies on the seasonal aisle. 
It makes my heart beat a little faster when 
I think of all of the things that need to get done for the holiday season.
Ready or not.


  1. Ha! That's funny... I really wanted to join a bunch of my momma friends for a trip down to a huge pumpkin patch + train ride + petting zoo + funextravaganza down in Wheatland. Thought it would be awesome for H. Then common sense got the best of me, and I realized it wouldn't be worth the 2-hr drive for 1 hr of fun followed by meltdown and a 2 hr drive back. She's too young. We settled for the local stuff, too. Good choice. I just can't wait to get out there and have some FUN with her!! Maybe next year.

  2. I feel the same way Danielle! 1 hour is about as long as bubba lasts so at this point I think I would enjoy it more then he would! Next year...hopefully!
