If this weren't the method by which I record all of our family's pics, this post would seem incredibly obnoxious

And maybe it still is, but that's my disclaimer. All that you'll find here is an absurd amount of family pictures, which I am incredibly grateful to have, thanks to the combined efforts of good friends.

These are the type of moments I hope to remember when looking back on London and Noble's childhood, a big thanks to those who helped us capture them on film.

Year Four at the Pumpkin Patch

Yep, we have been to Walter's pumpkin patch every fall since London was two years old.
And I look forward to it every year.

This year, they had a face painting station-and none of that 'flower on you cheek' business-oh no-there was some serious face art goin' on; and since Nana was with us, both children were indulged.
London was in heaven. The girl could not stop looking at herself in any reflective surface we passed by. I wish we had a picture of the moment she saw her completed face for the first time.
Sheer. Delight.
Since this was the final stop on our pumpkin patch outing Noble was beat. He nearly fell asleep while his face was being painted.
I mean he was completely relaxed. He didn't want to get off the chair when his bat was completed. That boy loves to be fiddled with in any way. This is why he also gets excited to go to: the doctor, the barber and the dentist (in the near future).
I'm already looking forward to our trip out here next fall.

I regret telling Taylor to move his hand because it looked 'awkward'.
This is what I got in response.
A new nomination for awkward family photos-so sorry Elizabeth, my sincerest apologies.

Off to the Pumpkin Patch-CCA style

One of the many reasons I love preschool; it encourages us (me) to go experience fun, new places that left up to my own devices (and energy level (or sometimes lack thereof)) we probably would never discover.
Apple Jack Pumpkin patch doesn't look like much from the view from K-54, but it had a lot to offer, and the rug rats (or rat babies as London says it) LOVED it.

I love the discussion going on here about which pumpkin London and Noble can agree on as the 'perfect' one.
"This one looks just about my size."
"Stop everything! I've found it!"
I also love how Noble is completely oblivious to the fact that he chose the one neon pink tricycle. If it has big wheels and he can pedal it color is of no concern.
