To the pumpkin patch!

11.04.2013

We did it!  We managed to make it to the pumpkin patch before Halloween!  We just squeezed in our visit the day before.  So the pickings were slim.  Very slim.  There were basically very teeny tiny pumpkins, large pumpkins, and rotted pumpkins. 
Havi carried this one around with her for a long time, but I finally convinced her it was rotten in places.
Then wouldn't you know, but we happened to run into one of the girls from Madeline's dance class.  So the girls looked about together while big brothers went searching on their own.
The dumplings finally settled on their not-yet-rotted-from-the-Florida-heat-pumpkins.  So I snapped a photo or two.  
Don't you love their pumpkin patch attire?  I know everyone dresses their kiddos up in all sorts of cute fall clothes.  Not us.  We go with what we have on at the end of the school day.  And thankfully, Havi was wearing clothes. lol And isn't she funny sitting on her pumpkin?! 

After returning from the pumpkin patch, Caleb wanted to hit tennis balls against the house....what.....a.....surprise.  And then he asked me to take some photos of him serving since I had my camera out.  
And you know Havi....never wants to be left out.
Well, we just got back from another weekend of camping and tennis.  It was quite a weekend.  I was sick with a cold the whole time, so not much fun for me.  I did manage to snap a few photos despite being sick and all the rain that fell.  So I'll share those adventures soon.  

Have a great Monday!

Oh, how I love little Havi toting around her pumpkin. Then to finally settle on one, literally! It looks like they had a blast looking for the perfect pumpkin.

We were able to get pumpkins before Halloween too though it's freezing here ;). Havi is very cute sitting on top of her tiny pumpkin. It's wonderful to see your family bonding together!
