Over the weekend, Marty and I headed to Lynd’s Fruit Farm and crossed off one of the activities on my fall bucket list: the pumpkin patch. My sister and brother-in-law met us out there to join in the fall fun!

Truth be told – the weather felt more like summer than fall (but that didn’t keep me from rocking out the flannel and boots!) C’mon fall!

I’m looking forward to carving and baking the seeds some time this week.

Happy Autumn everyone!

Also, now that the news has gone public,  I can officially announce that I’m going to be an aunt! My sister is pregnant! 🙂 Here are a few photos from the mini ‘photo-shoot’ I did for my sister and brother-in-law.

A little pumpkin is on the way…

Have you taken a trip to the pumpkin patch yet?

  1. Congrats on being an (almost) aunt!! My first niece was born in June, and I have to say, being an aunt is such an awesome experience! I dont really have any young cousins or anything, so this was the first baby born in my family (well my husband’s technically) in a LONG time, which made it even more exciting!

  2. I’ve never been to a pumpkin patch, I’m not sure that we have them in the UK? Either way it looks like fun!

    Congratulations to your sister, being an Aunt must be such a wonderful thing 🙂 I think I have a long time to wait till my sister has babies (she’s 17!). I hope you’re okay!

    1. Thank you! 🙂 I can’t believe they don’t have them in the UK – though, you also have some things I’d LOVE to have here in the US. I told my husband that if I could live anywhere it’d be in the UK. It appears to be so beautiful and picturesque. I’m sure it doesn’t always feel that way but I just love the history of the country. All of the old architecture and such 🙂

  3. I passed the pumpkin patch when I went apple picking. Does that count? Congrats to your sis!!! The photos are beautiful! I’m surprised your not trying to be a professional photog.

    1. I’ve considered but I don’t want to be one of those people who tries to be one and doesn’t have the greatest pictures- you know? Not trying to be offensive but too many housewives take okay pictures and then start asking you to pay them in Facebook statuses! Ha. Wow that sounds terrible!

  4. You always take the best pictures! Congrats to your sister!! 🙂 I haven’t gone to a Pumpkin Patch yet, but I hope to real soon….I think that I might be running out of time though…:p
    On a side “Ohio” note….I think that I was close to you! I was about 30 minutes from Cleveland and when my friend was taking me to the airport Tuesday I saw a sign that said Columbus! 🙂

    1. Thank you 🙂 I think you still have some time! Pumpkins are fun even in November for Thanksgiving!! Also, you were quite close to me! I hope you had a nice trip to Ohio – can you believe I’ve never been to Cleveland??

  5. Congratulations to your sister and brother-in-law! I love the maternity photos!

    On another note, before I even read Jessie’s comment, I was thinking the same thing. As an oldest child myself, I can kind of relate to how that would feel, and I know you’ve alluded to the fact that some other things are going on in your own life. I know that I don’t know the details, but just want to let you know that I’m thinking about you <3.

    1. Thank you Jessie 🙂 I’ll be honest – it was pretty hard to take the news at first. I have been struggling with the emotions of what I’ve discussed with you plus having that selfish thought of, ‘Shouldn’t the first born have the first grandchild?’ Definitely a mix of emotions but I am really happy for her. I’ll email you when I get to work this morning with more details.

  6. Ahh, congrats to your sister! I love babies. Your pumpkin patch looks so much funner than ours. Since I love in a overpopulated city, we have a literal “patch” on the side of a busy intersection. Not so much of a holiday feeling.

    1. One of the (very) few downsides of living in the city. I am just dying to live in San Fransisco one day (or New York but I don’t think I will ever be able to get my husband on board with that city. Boo.) It makes me sad that there is only a little ‘patch’ in the city but that also sounds somewhat charming to me since I grew up going to the large fields every year. I think it would present a problem once I had children (I’d want them to experience the large open field); however, maybe there are places just outside of San Fran where you could go?
