Back in October ...

So ummm yes ... it's been a little while eh? :) For no reason other than I want to show off my little cuties and their friends from this fall, we'll start off with the Bi-Zi Pumpkin Patch visit. We were lucky enough to have our friends not only recommend the visit, but take us with them on their annual pumpkin patch trek. A confession & realization - not only was this going to be the first pumpkin patch experience for my kids but for me too! I realized before we got there that I had never done anything like this either.

We did the bale pyramid, saw the farm animals, found our inner cowboys (and cowgirls) with some calf roping and yes, launched a few pumpkins with the pumpkin shot launcher. It's as fun (and dangerous and competitive ;) ) as it sounds.

The crew mid-pumpkin-pick ...

I thought we were missing a kid in that first shot ;) .

about 10 minutes before this shot I lost track of the group and was wandering in a different direction. That's when I hear someone talking about stealing pumpkins and you know you can't do that. I look up and around. Still not sure what the heck that person is talking about as they walk toward me & say again, "I think you are trying to hide a pumpkin under there aren't you" ... he repeated it once more and then it dawned on me, ohmygosh he's talking about my belly! So with 2+ months to go, I was apparently as big as a pumpkin - I'm glad I didn't realize that's what he was saying at the time ;) - and no pumpkin tricks there it was all me and baby!

Here's the real pumpkin-whisperer.

Not sure what he was saying but when he looked up & caught my eye I got this second shot.

And yes, this was the pumpkin he took home.
