We are having a lovely October [which after our spring/summer and fall, we totally deserve] Ama read something in some paper about a Pumpkin and Scarecrow Festival near Okotoks, so this afternoon, we decided spur of the moment to check it out. [Spur of the moment, because that's kind of how we roll around here]
I've never been to a pumpkin patch. EVER. I've always thought it would be so neat, [besides the obvious great picture-taking opportunities] and so much fun to pick out our very own pumpkins. I'm thrilled to blog, that as of October 9th, 2010 we've seen a real pumpkin patch! A sparse pumpkin patch, because the pumpkins were pretty well picked over, but a pumpkin patch never the less! There were definitely picture taking opportunities. The only thing was the darn sunlight was so harsh and overhead. It cast shadows on every picture I took. But you take what you can get. [Isn't it funny, that I'm complaining about the harsh sun overhead, rather than the rain and dreary skies]
The girl, totally dis-interested, and already tired of looking at the camera.
See what I mean about the sunlight being so harsh? It casts too many darn shadows!
Looking for itty-bitty pumpkins. The girl was in her glory.
The boy very eager to find his own itty-bitty pumpkin after he realized his sister had found one for herself.
It was a fantastic way to spend the Saturday of our Thanksgiving weekend. I think the truck's thermostat ready 25°. We are loving every moment of these above seasonal temperatures.
