autumn

i absolutely love going to kruger’s farm on sauvie island. we often go in the summer months to wander about, pick (and eat) berries and languish under the giant old oak tree.

our annual trip in the fall to the pumpkin patch has become a tradition our entire family looks forward to. this year was coco’s first time. we rode the hayride out to the patch, picked out our favorite pumpkins, explored the giant corn maze, ate homemade corn dogs, wood fired pizza, roasted ears of corn and delicious caramel apples! micah and i enjoyed some pints by captured by porches too. we were ready for a thunderstorm at any moment, but it waited until later that night. all in all, it was a perfect family day, complete with wild flowers, live bluegrass and sunshine!

a bit late, but here it is…

when we lived in eugene, we always went to the pumpkin patch at thistledown farms with the douglass family. we have a lot of great memories from those days.  here are a few pictures from back in the day.  ethan, violet & noah must be around 3 and 4 years old.

in portland our tradition has been to go with the stephens family to the pumpkin patch at sauvie island.  here is a photo from our first year with them in 2008.

this year was fantastic, eating roasted ears of corn (dipped in butter!), exploring the corn maze and hunting for the perfect pumpkin.  i am only 20 weeks pregnant here, but i look like i might pop.

frankie started out the trip asleep…

and woke up in a bad mood…

and kept crying for the group shot too.  i can’t believe how much the kids have grown in 3 years!

very cool tractor shot.

we jumped on the hay ride and ventured into the fields.  ethan & poppi.

frankie finally stopped crying and started looking for the perfect pumpkin.
