Our Little Pumpkin

It was a chilly Autumn morning...

No, that's not it.

As we left the house, bundled in our sweaters and sipping hot chocolate...

No, that's not it either.

It was six days before Halloween, and it was 86 degrees and sunny in Texas.

Yes, that's the introduction I was looking for.

I'm savvy with Mommy Blogging 101. Have cute child? Must take pictures in October at a pumpkin patch.

 I confess that one of the main reasons we went to Homestead Farms was because I wanted adorable pictures of Denver. Yes, I got my pictures, but more importabtly Denver LOVED our time at the farm.  He wandered around the pumpkin patch for quite a while, just staring at everything, throwing gourds, moving pumpkins and squash from one pile to another, and climbing on hay barrels.

 Homestead Farms is also much more than a pumpkin patch. It is a farm with goats...

chickens (and roosters)...

and of course, pumpkins...

Can you tell it was a bit windy? :)

Denver had such a good time that he grabbed a power nap on the way home. 

So was it the perfect chilly Fall day I was hoping for? Not Quite. But was it a great day at the farm anyway? Absolutely.
