Pumpkin Patch

This morning we headed over to Huber's Orchard and Winery to pick out a pumpkin. You take a tractor ride out to a huge field of pumpkins. This is the second year we have done this. Last year, Jonathan was a relatively new walker and took all of two steps before he insisted on being carried for the rest of the day. Here's a blast from the past:



Jonathan's favorite part this year was definitely the tractors, much like when we visited the Pumpkin Festival in West Virginia earlier this month. After having delicious freshly baked cinnamon rolls for breakfast, we hopped on the tractor and headed out to the patch.



The requisite family self portrait:



Jonathan is, of course, a seasoned walker now but he was still hesitant to walk around amongst the pumpkins. This required he and Daddy to have a little talk as I was not about to carry him around the whole time. Both Jonathan and Daddy were in costume for this outing, Jonathan in a pumpkin shirt and Daddy in his denim overalls:



Although there were pumpkins as far as the eye could see...



...we only found one pumpkin that we really liked. After we made our selection, we rode the tractor back to the farmer's market. Jonathan was thrilled with the fact that they had several tractors set up on display. He wanted to sit on each one:





I was happy that he would stick his head through one of the cutouts--I LOVE those things:



We had a great time and I am happy to continue what I hope will become a family tradition!
