Spring is my favorite time of year, followed closely by fall. This is odd when I take a moment to think about it, because they're the two transition seasons. Ushering in the warm, or ushering the cold.
Transition is hard. But I can do hard things; even embrace them sometimes---like two little ladies I know. And, the fall too. Mostly, because fall = pumpkins.
I love all things pumpkin.
Last Saturday we took our girlies for our annual trip to the pumpkin patch. I'm such a sucker for comparison shots. We were taking the girls to "pick out their pumpkins" when they were tiny. Sometimes I build up these experiences in my mind, knowing that really, really they're too young to get it, but there will be pictures that we did it every. single. year.
Last year, the girls had a whole lot more input in their pumpkin choosing experience.
And this year was a whole lot of fun! The girls went tromping through the pumpkin fields like experts.
But first, I just have to show you one thing. The girls were so excited to be sporting their new owl leg warmers:
Now, on to pumpkins.
This year the girls really liked big pumpkins:
So, our rule was that they needed to be able to lift the pumpkin (at least a little bit).
The girls had a great time running around the pumpkin fields. It was so fun to watch their strong legs carry them all the way to the end of the pumpkin fields.
The girls rested briefly in the wagon with their pumpkins:
But, our strong healthy girls preferred to help their papa secure their pumpkin loot:
We ended our pumpkin patch experience dancing to some bluegrass music. Brynne and Hadley had such a great time! Their carefree delight in pumpkins and music and dancing makes me smile till my face hurts.
Can't wait to see them!
