pumpkin patching


To make a long story short, yesterday was a long day. I thought "teething" behavior in babies was all a myth, but I have been very sadly mistaken these last couple weeks. We had been planning since the weekend to go to a pumpkin patch on Wednesday (yesterday), but after the long day Wyatt & I had, I just didn't think it would be in the cards for us. But I am beyond grateful we made it happen, because getting outside, taking some photographs with my real camera, picking out a pumpkin, enjoying the golden hour away from the hustle & bustle, was—without sounding too cheesy—exactly what I needed!! It's amazing what a little fresh air can do for my spirits. We got there a little after 5pm and they closed at 6pm, but I could have easily stayed there for a couple more hours.


  1. I am always amazed how restorative fresh air is. Your words and pictures are really lovely. Enjoy your fall.

  2. looks like a gorgeous outing! fresh air is the best for teething babies...and their moms! haha

  3. i am LOVING your hair, lady. what a beautiful time to be at the pumpkin patch. lovely captures. we ought to get together sometime.

  4. aww poor little mite, teething is Not Nice ! I used to freeze watermelon rind (with a bit of left over flesh on it) and give it to my daughter to chew on when she was teething. Looks like you had a lovely day. I've never been to a pumpkin patch in my life and always love seeing pictures of them
