It's the great pumpkin...patch

One thing that I HAD to do with Parker this year was take him to a pumpkin patch to pick out his first pumpkin. Although last year was his "official" first Halloween, he was only 2 months old and didn't really get to experience the fun of Halloween. At the last minute I even made Parker a diaper and shirt for the occasion.

I was excited when I found that we had a farm with a pumpkin patch just a few minutes away. We arrived at the pumpkin patch just before the sun went down, it made for such beautiful photos. I love the desert at sunset.

We enjoyed a fun hay ride to the pumpkin patch. I was excited to score the front row seats so I could get some good pictures of our view.

Parker was getting some advice from the locals on which pumpkin to choose. "If I stick my tongue out and raise my right foot in the air, the right pumpkin will come to me."
