One of the luckiest men alive

We went pumpkin picking last weekend, as did William, over at Poop & Boogies. Although we took the video camera with extra tapes to capture the anticipated overflow of cuteness, we didn’t take the video camera battery, so you get these photos instead. At least we remembered the diaper bag, unlike last year, when 3B screamed all the way to the patch–not that we remember that drive like we’d remember toothpicks being jabbed into our eyes.

3B looks for a pumpkin

This year, not only did 3B enjoy the drive, we had our friend D. along for the ride. However, although we thought we were going to the same patch we went to last year, with the goats, and the historic buildings, and all of that, it turns out we printed directions to the patch one turnoff before that. But, we were glad for the mistake, since this patch was a much more sincere patch than the one we meant to go to turned out to be this year.

You don't scare me, Scarecrow.

This year, the patch we meant to go to was nothing more than pumpkins trucked in to sit on a lawn, rather than the patch we went to this year, which still had about half the pumpkins still on the vine. However, the patch we meant to go to did have funnel cakes and cider–before we got there.

Almost as pretty as the Popeye's chicken place out our window at home.

Oh well, there’s always next year for videos and the funnel cakes. At least this year we had a shot at seeing the Great Pumpkin and there was plenty of cuteness, which should be the case every year.

Don't look back, you can never look back...unless you're really cute

As long as we don’t forget to bring 3B.

What is a perfect pumpkin, anyway?

  • I loved those pictures you posted on Flickr. The epitome of fall punkin’ pickin’. Glad you had a great day.

    It’s sick how excited I am to take our kid to the pumpkin patch. S/he will be around 6 months old, so there MAY be a silly outfit involved for picture taking 🙂

  • SJC: Oh, there were many silly outfits at this pumpkin patch, just none on our baby. Plenty on the other babies, though.

  • I like stills and memories better than the video camera (of which I have none) because I can remember what I want rather than what the camera thinks happened. It makes for better discussions of the trip in later years too.

  • Great pictures! That sounds like a lot of fun!

  • “…a much more sincere patch…”

    Ha, I just got that. Sadly, we picked our pumpkins at the A&P; this year.

    (Side note: being a California native, writing things like “the A&P;” makes me want to bust out some Springsteen lyrics or something. I don’t think anybody wrote any songs about Ralphs or Vons.)

  • very cute!

    …and my goodness, look at the trees…we don’t have such wonderful color change down here in the Fall….
