Pumpkin Patch Visit 2015!

If I only blogged once a  year, this would probably be the post I would share every year.  I love the pumpkin patch pictures of the kids (and Tony and I too–when we are captured).  G was especially active this year, most of his pictures are fuzzy, so I apologize in advance for any fuzzy action shots. 😉

DSC_0114  The pumpkin patch we always go to had a couple of fun picture spots. The boys actually enjoyed getting in those shots. DSC_0116  TJ surprised me by his self posing for pictures and partial cooperation in the photo shoot (he normally gets out of photos if he can).DSC_0119DSC_0120 DSC_0121 DSC_0122 DSC_0123The selection was pretty small this year, so we only picked out one to take home and carve.

DSC_0124 I’m not sure why TJ was touching his nose in this picture, I’ll have to ask him. DSC_0126 He’s always trying to show us how strong his is!DSC_0127 We had to stop our fun for a couple minutes and check TJ’s blood sugar level.  He was low when we left, and after a couple of treats he was starting to climb high, but a quick check and bolus and we were back in the fun of things and ready to go on with the photo-shoot. 😉

Daddy came out from behind the camera to help them decide which pumpkin would come home with us.

DSC_0136We had to come up with a new way to take our standard

boys in the wheelbarrow with pumpkins shots. DSC_0139TJ was just too big,

so he got to be the driver. DSC_0141

He felt safer with both feet on the ground. DSC_0161DSC_0148DSC_0134 TJ got to help us wheel the pumpkin over to the scales to get it weighed. DSC_0176  DSC_0182Daddy took over when TJ got tired.DSC_0183

We got our pumpkin weighed DSC_0184but not the two big ones. 😉 DSC_0187We managed to get in and out just in time! The weather turned just as we were getting back in the car and shortly after we got home it started raining.DSC_0117 I sure do love all the smiles with lots of pumpkins!

I almost forgot to add in this picture! It was my way of making up for the photo I expected to take with the boys and the pregnancy belly. It didn’t turn out exactly as I envisioned it, but it is a cute picture and will fill its purpose. It took some time and energy to get the boys to cooperate, which will be a fun memory in itself. 😉


Sweet boys loving their mommy. ❤
