Be prepared for an overdose of pumpkins, produce, and
You've been warned.
I wish I could say that all things went according to plan...somehow I thought I told Mackenzie that even though we couldn't go to the Roloff's, we could still go to Lone Pine Farms on Thursday. We waited for her to come home from work for an hour and a half...she saw a picture of Lily dressed and ready "for our day at the pumpkin patch" on Instagram and immediately called me, heartbroken. She had a nanny interview and couldn't go with us- thankfully she got the job, so I think she's forgiven me. If not, I'll make it up to her by doing all her laundry for a week.
Oh wait, I do that anyway.
We missed Mackenzie greatly, but appreciated the use of her camera.
Welcome to Gourd Heaven....
FOR THE LOVE OF GOURDS !!!!
Maybe it's the raging pregnancy hormones, but I wanted to take three of these bad boys and sink my teeth into them right then and there. Don't they look DIVINE???
And this next picture just begs the question --
WHY can't my pantry look like this every day, WHY ??
Because I would weigh 400 pounds if it did, that's why. Because I could not resist spreading multiple pieces of toast with insane amounts of homemade preserves each morning, and poor Sam would have to roll me away from the breakfast table when I was done.
See that sign above? The one that says Carmel Apples $5.00 ? If you saw that thing you would know why. I have never seen such a gigantic apple in all my life. It would have fed our whole family. I'm going back to get one next week. To share, promise !
I could have stayed in the market at the pumpkin patch the entire afternoon and been as happy as a clam.
|me, getting high on Indian corn. I shoulda been a pilgrim, dangit !|
My kids however, wanted to experience the rest of the wonders of Lone Pine Farms.
|Jack. no further explanation neededed.|
|Jonathan and his tractor.|
A note about the above picture. Josiah laughed so hard at Caleb and his "trick photography" I thought he was gonna pee his pants. We had to tell Caleb that this pose only works when you're facing forward.
What can I say, he's homeschooled.
Lily's favorite part of the day - the petting zoo !!!
Oh wait, that was two years ago.
There we go.
Talk about deja vu!
Noah so wanted to take this kid home with him.
Get it? Kid??
She needs one !!!
Only when I edited this photo did I notice his pants. But I'm going to pretend we meant to send Caleb in holey pants. Because they look just like what real farmer's kids look like. Just wanted him to fit right in with y'all.
Dang that guy is cute. I think I need to have his babies !
(This may or may not have been the first thing I said when I met him 28 years ago this month !!)
Jack. Again, no further explanation needed.
Josiah and his lovely bride. Aren't they cuuuuuuuuuuute????
Even their shoes are cute !!!
And speaking of cuteness overload.....
