Just like everybody else, we headed out to a pumpkin patch last weekend. One of our Facebook friends (keep up with us HERE) alerted us to the fact that First Evangelical Free Church has a patch where the proceeds go to help human trafficking. Done and done. We love giving our money to something that supports a good cause. HERE's more info on their pumpkin patch hours. We stayed for almost two hours and they have a great little playground about 10 feet from the patch, so Nash was in hog heaven. We packed snacks and made an afternoon of it.
I must say though, we were cracking up about how NOT relaxing it was going to pumpkin patch with a toddler. Or let me rephrase, a toddler boy that loves kicking and throwing objects. Let's just say, all the other patchers heard me say about a million times, 'Nash, pumpkins aren't for throwing. They are not balls. We only throw balls.' Jeez louise, ha! It's funny how you don't even think of these hilarious scenarios until you're already knee deep in it. He was a great patch buddy and had a blast.
We also let Nash pick out four pumpkins. You'll crack up when you see the first one he picked. So typical of my bubs. The one and only albino pumpkin in the bunch. That'a boy...always marching to the beat of his own drum! It was some downright awesome toddler exploration and he's still talking about the 'punkin patch' and how much he's ready to go back for more. Oh boy, I love me some fall!
PS - It's also one of my recent goals to bust out my big camera more often. I'm so glad I did. Only a few of these pics are with my new iPhone 5S but the rest are with my camera. It takes some amazing pictures. None of these have even been edited. I cannot believe how hard it is to lug out a big ol' camera with two kiddos. Do y'all have any tips on that front?
