Pumpkin Patch Fun 2014


Each year since Lydia was born (2009), we’ve taken pumpkin patch pictures. We go to a few different local nurseries and farms to get the perfect photos. This year we visited Flamingo Road Nursery.

The nursery has a cute set up with hay, pumpkins, and scarecrows. It sets the perfect stage for fun fall photos.

We purchased small pumpkins for the kids to paint. As you can see, they had a lot of fun painting their pumpkins! I’m just not quite sure if they got more paint on the pumpkins or themselves.

We may have to visit another place this weekend to get some more pictures! I really do loves this time of year.
