A Breezy Sunny Autumn Day

Went to the pumpkin patch this weekend…I had the delusions again, delusions that I would get some beautiful photos of the kids in the autumn splendor.  We got to the pumpkin patch and, well, have you ever tried to get four young children to sit still, every hair in place, pretend like it’s not breezy and cold, and all simultaneously look at the camera and smile?  Yeah.  So here’s how it went down…

Arrival at the patch…pumpkins aplenty.

Ella was not interested in pictures, she was interested in seeing exactly how many pumpkins she could fit into our wagon. 



One doesn’t even think about trying to stop her.  Because one’s chances at any good pictures will evaporate at the moment the shrieking begins.

After a quick survey of her work, she seemed satisfied that our wagon was filled to her specifications. 

It was at this point I thought it might be a good time to try to catch a picture or two.  Yeah.

Mmm Hmm.  And it was at this point that I gave up.

And just had fun.

  1. I’m often reminded to just have fun by G and the kids. Sometimes (often) I get caught up in the details and forget. Glad you remembered to enjoy! Looks like fun – maybe you need to grow a pumpkin patch to keep Ella busy.

  2. We’re heading to a pumpkin patch this weekend but something tells me it might be easier to get a picture of one child than four. 🙂 I love that you posted the non-perfect pics. I think it captures the activity of it all. Ella is too cute!
