We started off the event with our must-have How Tall This Fall pictures. Unfortunately, I cropped off the top of the sign that says How Tall This Fall...but trust me, that's what it's called. promise.
Georgia Marie, almost 5.5
It's so nice to see a smiling, happy Gee. She's had a rough couple of months.
Scarlett Caroline, 4 in a couple of weeks
Scarlett was just a baby the first time we took her here and had to be held up to have her picture taken. Now she's posing like a pro. craziness.
Oh look, there's the sign. proof.
Ezra Emil, 7 next week
Gah! He's looking so old! It's especially crazy to see him standing in the same spot year after year...he's just so much older now.
Oak Gideon, 16 mo
Poor little man was tired and grumpy. He was not pleased at all. Luckily he had cheered up by the time we hit the actual pumpkin patch.
Ezra and Georgia celebrating at the top of the slide in the middle of the hay maze
Scarlett's attempt at smiling with wet panties. Poor girl had an accident when she got stuck in the middle of the maze. Luckily Daddy had a hand warmer that we put it down her tights. (I know, I know, it sounds all sorts of odd, but it kept the cold away)
(ps-if that hat looks familiar...it's because it is. It's a 6-12 mo hat that she's worn pretty much her entire life. true story.)
Dad and Oak on on the hay ride down to the pumpkin patch
Oakie was so proud that he managed to pick up this teeny-tiny pumpkin
Ezra with his choice. He picked it because it's "so dark that it's almost black...like a bat."
Scarlett couldn't resist the temptation to pick out a bright yellow pumpkin, her very favorite color
Georgie showing off her perfect, round, wart-less orange pumpkin. She was adamant that she wanted to go classic. None of those new-fangled, fashionably colored gourds for this girl.
Posing with the loot
Cherish it, folks, 'cause it's the only smiley picture of Oak we got all day
After picking our pumpkins we hit up the playground for one last hurrah.
Oh look, two homeless children we found on the tire swing.
Ezra took Oak on his first big kid slide. I was worried it'd scare him to death but the boy, in true Lifferth fashion, loved every exhilarating second of it.
Well, that's a wrap, folks! I do so love the pumpkin patch yearly post. It makes me happy.
