Picking Pumpkins 2016 | Anchors Aweigh


Picking Pumpkins 2016

Fall is my favorite season of the year. I love the crisp weather, I love the start of the holidays, and I love all things pumpkin! Pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin candles... give me all the pumpkin! Parker and I started going to the pumpkin patch when we got married 5 years ago, and I don't think we have missed a year since. We were actually that couple that dressed our dog up as a pumpkin and took her to the patch. We have no shame, apparently. And by "we", I mean me. I think Parker about died of embarrassment every time I drug Jenny to the pumpkin patch dressed like a big orange pumpkin. 

Seriously though, she made a cute pumpkin. Here's a pumpkin patch throwback circa 2011.

I can't handle the cuteness!

This year Jenny stayed back, but I did drag my little sisters to the patch with me to pick our pumpkins! We oohed and ahhed over the rows and rows of pumpkins and carefully selected our favorite ones! There really is something magical about a pumpkin patch.

Since I didn't have any big strong man arms with me to carry the big pumpkins, I opted for the smaller, more pregnancy-friendly versions. I picked a pumpkin for all my babies- one for Jenny, one for Taylor, and one for baby boy!

I have a tradition of picking a white pumpkin for our angel girl, so I was really excited to pick the prettiest white pumpkin I could find. I picked an orange pumpkin for Jenny and then a very small orange pumpkin for the boy. It will be so fun next year watching him pick his own pumpkin! 

 We picked our pumpkins quickly and off we went (it's still hot in South Texas, yall). It was such a fun way to spend the afternoon, and I have been admiring my little family of pumpkins every day since! So glad my sisters were game to come with me! They saved Jenny the embarrassment of having to accompany me in her pumpkin costume again. She hated it about as much as Parker did. ;)

I love that you are wearing shorts to pick pumpkins! Your baby bump is the CUTEST! Jenny's costume is so silly!

Dogs in costumes get me every single time! I really need to get serious on what Judy & Bill are going to be.
