pumpkin pickin'

It was a very chilly day in the Midwest yesterday (there were snow flurries! ick!), but we bundled up and headed out to a local pumpkin patch. The sun was shining and there were pumpkins needing to be picked!

Three years ago Josh and I spent an afternoon at this same farm. I clearly remember getting teary-eyed as I wondered when we'd have our own little one to share such a special Fall day with. Yesterday was finally it....what a blessing!

When we arrived, we checked out the goats...

The hay piles were fun to sit in and definitely helped to keep Josiah warm!

Our little family of 3 took a fun hayride out to the fields where we picked our 3 pumpkins. Josiah, snuggled in the carrier, just kept looking everywhere taking everything in.

We had to get a few classic "baby sitting with all the pumpkins" pictures of course! Even though it was cold and windy, Josiah sat SO well and hammed it up for the camera.

Doesn't this little boy just melt your heart?!

We warmed up for a bit with some apple cider inside the shop. Josiah needed to have just a little taste...

He definitely liked it!

It was a perfect day of pumpkin pickin'! We are incredibly blessed to have our sweet little peanut here to enjoy days like this with. He is a joy.

So we've got our pumpkins to carve and now this new mama needs to decide what her little boy should be for his first Halloween! I'm thinking a bear or a candy corn, this is quite an important and exciting decision! Any suggestions?!

Enjoy the rest of this Fall weekend, friends!
