Pumpkin Picking

Fall is by far my favourite time of year – pumpkins, apples, falling leaves, mums, hayrides, the crisp smell in the air on those cooler nights... This year I couldn't wait to share some of those fall delights with our son, so we headed out today to our local farm for a few pumpkins to decorate the house. It was so much fun! All the pleasures of the season are so much more magical being able to share them with our little baby boy. We had the entire patch to ourselves – it was wonderful! Totally silent, except for the crunching of dried vines underfoot and a few baby giggles here and there. He was mostly all business taking in the sights and sounds, investigating the smoothness of a bright orange pumpkin and the slightly prickly feeling of drying blooms in the field. I love watching him take in the world around him! Something tells me the older he gets, the more fun it's going to be.

Welcome, October. We're happy to see you.
