Pumpkin Patch Mania

Off to the Pumpkin Patch!

So much to see!
(Pumpkin hunting is best done in pumpkin camouflage, y'know.)

Look at all the pretty pump'ins!

We got to ride the hay ride out to the pumpkin patch! Siennalee was overwhelmed with the people watching opportunities (there were several little babies there - she loves little babies)!

Our family.
(Siennalee is too busy checking out the picture taker to remember to smile.)

Whoa, pumpkins! I got it...

Daddy's such a big helper. :)

We ended our trip in the farm's little market area. Sienna enjoyed seeing all the pretty produce. Everything was an apple.

She got to pick out several little gourds. I mean, apples.

Then we took our produce to the car!

I love this picture. Apparently I was lingering too long to get some pictures of the farm's pretty fall decorations.

Once she was satisfied that Mommie was coming, she was back to helping Daddy! (Yes, her cute little sweater is too small - it's time for Mommie to get a new fall sweater, in 4T no less! Yikes!)

Oh, she's spied the hay bales with little kids playing on them.
She's really in to "playing wif yiddle kids."

So we all got to play on the hay bales.

Siennalee always has to have her hand on us when we're close by. What a sweetie.

Time to head home! Daddy makes the departure a little more palatable by jumping down (no, not from the very top).

Then it's flying to the car!

They flew all the way to the car!

And sadly, yes, all good things must come to an end.
Of course, it's a worse end when you're late for both nap and lunch...

Here's a little slideshow of pictures I just couldn't fit in to this already long post. There are quite a few sequences which are just priceless:
