Pumpkin Patch

Matt and I started talking about wanting to take Lorelai to a pumpkin patch as soon as it started getting close to fall.  The problem was, I didn't want to take LL to the pumpkin patch when it was warm enough for her to just wear a little onesie.  I actually wanted to have her pictures from the pumpking patch LOOK like it was fall.  We kept talking about it, but then putting it off because it had been so warm.  Finally, last Saturday it cooled down and it was actually pretty cold outside.  We decided that this was our opportunity!  We got her dressed up all cute, and headed out to a little patch in Lakeland.  Even though we live pretty close, we NEVER go to Lakeland.  We always go to Valdosta for everything.  We decided to go here because it was literally 5 minutes from our house.  We don't get to drive only 5 minutes anywhere anymore, so this was a nice treat.  The patch was at the Lakeland United Methodist Church.  I think that's probably a "methodist" thing, because Park Ave UMC in Valdosta has one every year, too.

We lucked out, because when we got there, we were the only ones there!  We had the whole place to ourselves and didn't feel weird about taking our time and taking lots of pictures.  LL was fascinated by all of the orange!  It's funny because in all of our pictures, we hardly have any of her looking at the camera because she couldn't stop looking at the pumpkins! 

We ended up getting a small sized pumpking for her and a medium one for us - both for only $3.75!  That was so crazy to us!  We were used to getting pupkins from the little stands in Valdosta for $20 a piece!  We will for sure be going back there next year!  Here are a few lot of my favorites!

One of my all time favorites!
