the pumpkin patch

Can't you feel the warm family togetherness?

Oh my stars, do I love pumpkin! Pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin soup, all of it. So it was with great pleasure that we took the fam to a large pumpkin patch yesterday. We went with Felix (who just turned six!) and his dad Dan, and Keira and Samara and their dad Scott. The kids romped in the muddy fields and we all selected several mamoth pumpkins to bring home. It was the perfect place for a family shot, so of course Unity was super grumpy about the camera. Chris said that it was like a harvest ritual for people with fancy cameras, and it's true. We did just get a fancy camera that I have been dreaming about for a while, and everyone there was pointing crazy lenses at their kids in the pumpkin patch. Oh well. I guess there are worse types to be.

Looks like a great outing. Mr. B. looks like he is riding that pumpkin like a horse! Chris is wearing a lovely hat. And the family photo looks nice, no matter what. That's life.
