Pumpkin Patch and Chill | Mommy and Me | 351st ed


Every year since our first daughter was born, it’s been a thing for us to get a picture in the pumpkin patch. We’ve successfully done it every year, with some small cheats. This year, we used our neighbors house that we “boo’d” and made it work. With being out of town and having the craziest October ever (with two birthdays and a trip to Walt Disney World among other things), the pumpkin patches were pretty much all gone. 

I also might have gone a little too hard, so it was Halloween, we had a party, I was frantically cutting out purple spots and sea shell covers, but we made it happen.

The rest of the week was just more craziness. But, I decided I did need at least one day to recover, so that meant skipping a day at the gym, but everything else still had to happen!

After being at Disney, I realized I never saw Wreck it Ralph…and we own the movie. So, we were in for a Saturday movie night. And, I got all of the snuggles. My arm fell asleep and I didn’t even care. It was perfect.

What were you up to this week?

Since the button code stopped working many moons ago, I took it out. But, if you are adding your link to my link list, please, as a courtesy, add a link back to my site so people can explain and link up themselves if they’d like. After all, that’s the point of the link up! It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids.

  1. We never made it to the pumpkin patch this year. We got pumpkins though, but also never got around to carving them or decorating them. So I really didn’t get any great Fall pics this year. A few in the yard with the leaves. I think I’d rather be at Disney instead of a pumpkin patch anyway. lol.

  2. Loved your costumes and hope you have a fantastic time later this week. So exciting! Looking forward to hearing about it. 🙂

  3. Incredibly beautiful pictures! It’s really an absolute delight to watch your clicks. I also appreciated your clearly written and thought-provoking article.
