Pumpkin Patch 2009

We made our annual trek to a pumpkin patch to get some pumpkins for Halloween. They even had a petting zoo. We had lots of fun and the weather was absolutely beautiful! We look forward to this trip every year. Grandma Marks was in town so she was able to go with us.
A great photo opportunity to get the kids by the sign
While everyone else was still petting the animals, Xavier and Mommy went to go take a picture by the sign. I was a few feet away from him and overheard a group walking by commenting on how cute of set-up they had. They thought Xavier was just part of the props, after he moved they figured out he was a real live baby. I had a hard time not laughing out loud.

Let's go find a pumpkin! This one is short and chubby just like me (and darn cute too)
This one is tall like me, but that sun is bright!

We think we found the winners!

Having fun with Grandma
Madelyn's pumpkin was too hard to sit on so this one worked well.

The End. Michael thought it was too funny that the pumpkin had a crack so we couldn't resist taking this shot. Madelyn didn't want to sit in the dirt because she might get dirty. Good thing you can't completely tell she's crying and very unhappy that mommy sat her down in the dirt.
