Obligatory Pictures of My Baby with Pumpkins. Because Fall.

10.28.2016

So I know I said I don't like photo dumps. Buuuuut, it's happening. Because pumpkins. And cute babies. And fall. And did I say cute babies?

Over the weekend, Jordan and I took R to Pumpkinville, which is hosted in the kid's garden in downtown OKC. I happened to come across a sign for Pumpkinville during one of my lunch walks at work, and I told Jordan we were absolutely definitely going.

We honestly weren't too sure how much R would really be into it at 14 months old, but she loved it, and it was so much fun. She's only really started walking pretty much full time within the last two weeks. We just let her take the lead and walk where she wanted, and it was really fun to see her get excited about the hay bales and pumpkins. She also got excited about metal chairs, and once she stopped to play with a sprinkler head, but anyway.
There were all these different paths lined with pumpkins, and even though there were a lot of people, it never felt crowded. There were also a lot of different places to sit with pumpkins and photo ops, and they really did a great job setting it up! It was $6 per person to enter (under 3 was free), and we thought it was totally worth it. I'm already looking forward to next year!
My favorite part of Pumpkinville were all the different types and sizes of pumpkins. They had this giant wall of all the different types lined up, which R liked and I thought was really cool!
R is big on climbing on things right now, and she hopped up on that rock all on her own and Jordan had to race over there and make sure she didn't topple off. And yes, you probably noticed she kept her hairbow on! When she's sufficiently distracted, she forgets about ripping her bows off and eating them, which means people don't mistake her for a boy and I'm a happy mama to be able to put my bow obsession to good use.
There's really no end to my thankfulness for my little family. Jordan and I have had our ups and downs since R was born, but we are continuing to grow and learn together, and I just love it so much when we're all together. Thank you, Jesus, for Saturdays and fall and cute babies with pumpkins. Amen.

  5. How sweet! We're going to try to do something like this tomorrow afternoon when James is off work, and I'm really looking forward to it. The three of us don't get much time together, and like you said, I love it when we're all together. Also--props to R for walking so well! G is still working on it. Facepalm.

  6. This post was great! I, for one, happen to like cute baby photo dump posts ;)

    We haven't made it to a pumpkin patch this year.....or last year....my poor deprived kiddos.

    I think my favorite picture is the one with you two girls peeking your heads through the cut out photo thing. I'm a total sucker for those!

  9. Oh man, this looks awesome! We just went to a pumpkin walk in our community, but it was SO PACKED that there was hardly any chances for slowing down (much less taking pictures!). This looks like the perfect blend of novelty and slowness :)

    Oh, and we're all fine with the photo dumps! :)

  14. I love all the different kinds of pumpkins. Caleb and I were totally lame this year and didn't do anything Fall themed. Any free Saturday we got we basically decided to spend resting, which I'm not mad about either! ;) So fun you let R kind of guide the paths and see what she got so excited about. I love it!

  15. I would also be interested in that pumpkin wall with all the actual names of different pumpkins, but my favorite kind of fall place is anything with an awesome corn maze to get lost in.
