Pumpkin Patch #1

Here in the Willamette Valley (Oregon), we are surrounded by farmland ... and this time of year, you can't go more than a few miles down the road in any direction without finding a pumpkin patch or "Harvest Festival" of some kind!
Good, wholesome, cheap entertainment for the whole family. :-)

We ventured out last week on our first pumpkin patch adventure of the season with our friends Sherry and Cam ... at Willamette Valley Fruit Company.
It was a beautiful (warm and sunny!) afternoon, and we had the place almost all to ourselves!

And because I have been HORRIBLE about posting pics of Lucy lately ... you might not recognize her! (and pardon the photo bomb!:)~

 (She spent much of the time on the barrel train, yelling "This is AWESOME!!!")

 (Thanks for the boost, Sherry!:-)

 This can't be my child ... she looks far too old to be my child.  

 This one's NOT my child, but he's cute, and I love him, too. :-)
Hi, Cam!

Of course, we couldn't leave without some pumpkins to decorate our front porch (I'll show your our Fall front porch soon, I hope), a pumpkin pie for Daddy, and a few other delicious pastries from their bakery.  SOOOOO good!

Stay tuned for Pumpkin Patch #2 ... coming soon! :-)


  1. super cute pix. just love family fall stuff. so fun. just wait, Lucy is going to look like a GIANT next to Max.:)

  2. Love the pics! Looks like a really fun pumpkin patch! Although there weren't any pumpkins in your pictures :) ha! She looks so much bigger now, very sweet. They grow up too fast :)

  3. Lucy is getting SO big and grown up looking! What a doll. She is seriously gorgeous. :)

  4. Still cute as ever but looking oh so big!! Looks like a great pumpkin patch - I love those trips. We have the same barrel train ride at the corn maze that we go to. Looking forward to seeing your porch!
    Jenn :)

  5. she is so so so cute! And what a great day!!! It looks like little L had a wonderful time! :o) hope you are doing really really well sweet friend!

  6. WOW. I honestly didnt recognize her. She is so beautiful and looks so grown up! Love the fall fun and pictures!

  7. Lucy IS getting big!! Something happens in there from age 3-4 and suddenly they are big girls!! I often look at Ally and wonder how in the WORLD I have such a big girl! Totally darling pictures Bec! Loves!

  8. My daughter is about the same age, and I think the exact same thought all the time - this big girl can't possibly be my baby girl!

  9. Such a fun day!! Can't believe Lucy is going to be 4 in a couple weeks. I still remember visiting u at the hospital with her!! And in just a matter of weeks I'll be doing that again but this time to see Max and Lucy!! Can't wait for Thursday's day #2 at the pumpkin patch : )


Thank you for your comments!
I love EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. :-)
