The pumpkin patch.....

Liam,
This week Daddy and I got you all dressed up in your "my first Halloween" outfit and took you on an adventure.
Near our house, there is a magical place called Hodges Dairy Farm. Everyday that mommy goes to work she gets to drive by this place and anxiously await each season change as they always have the most wonderful events depending on the time of year. The farm is HUGE....acres after acres of sunflower fields, a big red barn, an old farm house, horses, cows, chickens, pigs, goats, fresh vegetables. This is mommy's favorite time of year there because they have a pumpkin patch that is available to visit 7 days a week during the entire month of October. They have pony rides, a petting zoo and fresh mums the size of bushes. It was the perfect fall day....crisp air, bright blue skies without a cloud in sight so we set out on an adventure to introduce you to the world of pumpkins and all things fall.....You were amazed!

You wanted to touch everything in sight...you squealed in delight as you saw your first pumpkin....your laughter was infectious...Daddy and I just marveled over watching your mind working a mile a minute. We captured the moments in photos but I will never forget your first fall...that first vision you had of a holiday and what it means to celebrate something with family. I love you my little punkin.....I have a feeling fall is going to be your season!
