Pumpkins Again

Just like last yearand the year before last, we went to our favorite pumpkin patch and set our children on a rickety wagon full of pumpkins to take their pictures.

Only this year, there're 2 of them.

And also, they were wearing matching outfits, but Jack crapped through his moments before we left the house-- that's what he does. Today, we were so freaking on time to leave the house (I even got up at 6 to flat iron my hair and smudge my eyeliner), and when I plucked Jack from the Exersaucer in our way downstairs, I noticed he was covered in prune poop.


Not very many picutres of Harry this time around. He was too busy losing his marbles over a wobbly wheel barrow

to really enjoy himself.

Jack O Lantern, though, was not crying for like 20 minutes in a row-- maybe his record to date.


  1. Poor Harry with the wheelbarrow. It is hard to try and be a big boy when the tools you are using won't cooperate. Glad Jack was in a good mood though!

  2. Yay for a happy Jack! We are going to do the same thing this week or next week sometime, but I am going to force them to wear fall clothes even though it is in the 80s still. Mwahahaha. Too cute.

    This is a GREAT entry! But poor Harry looks so frustrated! Jack looks happy, though. I think he is going to be so much happier as soon as he can move for himself.
    I love fall!

  5. OMG, look at Jack! He's such a big boy! When TF did that happen?

    Love the pumpkin patch pictures; you are on the ball, lady.
