Pumpkin Patch

On Sunday morning I woke up to find that fall had officially started for us too out here in Southern California. So as not to feel left out by all my friends posting pretty photos of their trees changing colors I took a photo of the tree in front of our house. See our LEAF changed too. That afternoon we drove out to Tanaka Farms in Irvine to visit the pumpkin patch. We always take the opportunity to get a family photo if we can. And this was possible because Auntie Kayci came with us. She made sure that Joey was involved in the petting zoo as well. As you can see he was trying to get a look at the animals. Johnnie mostly ran away from the animals when they approached him, but with some coaxing from daddy he was willing to pet a few. Joey's 1st photo with pumpkins. He was basically this excited all day to be here. Johnnie played around with the wheelbarrows full of pumpkins, trying to pick them up with no success but many declarations of "HEAVY". But when it came time to choose one to take home he was happy with this one. Can you see it? And one last photo to give you an update on the littlest baby to be. Here I am. 1/2 way done with my pregnancy. Just slightly bigger than the pumpkin, right? A girl can dream. I'm off to drop Rick off at the airport for his school trip to China for 2 weeks. Hope he has a great time & hope the boys don't tire me out TOO MUCH!

Ditto what J.J. said...that last picture of you is too cute!! I can't believe you're already 20 weeks. And I can't believe Rick is leaving you for 2 weeks. I'd be stressing!! Good luck and can't wait to see some pics from China!
