Little ghosties in the pumpkin patch
Darin had me dress the girls in vintage shifts the other day when we took them to the pumpkin patch, so he could capture some old-fashioned looking photographs.
I love these haunting little portraits.
Toot's a blur, but that's normal for her.
I really can't express what joy it brings me to sit in a pumpkin patch and hold in my arms my very own two babies. It's a sweet sweet life this October, no matter how high up into the 90s our temps are getting again ;)
Lucy did the hay maze too. It was more fun than I expected. There were little two-year-old sized tunnels sprinkled throughout that she could crawl through for a short cut, and pretend to get stuck like Winnie the Pooh. I wondered if she would be nervous running through the maze, coming to dead ends, not knowing which way was out, but she absolutely loved it.
And in fact, she never wanted to leave. I had to tell her about the petting zoo to get her to leave the hay maze area.
That was the first day of October and I have about 500 more photos but I wanted to show Darin's ghostly ones separately. I love this month so much. I've made pumpkin chocolate chip cookies already, soup and pie. My yard is full of pumpkins and hay bales (more pics of that to come.) I don't even care that it's still hot; so much fun stuff is happening and I am trusting that the rains are coming in abundance to save our withering ghostly Californian souls.
How's your October so far?
