pumpkin patch

We celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend and for the whole it was glorious - warm and sunny during the day with crisp autumn nights. It's become a bit of a tradition to head out to a pumpkin patch. My favourite spot is a place near Kitchener-Waterloo close to St. Jacob's Market. We didn't have pumpkins farms like these growing up in Alberta so it's a treat for me to take my kids to such a place. pumpkinfarm-3It has the most stunning array of pumpkins, squashes and gourds I have ever seen.

I love the celadon green and pale blue squashes and pumpkins. Definitely my favourite.

pumpkinfarm-4Orla quickly chose her favourite and wouldn't let go! A big traditional orange pumpkin.

pumpkinfarm-6In terms of getting a shot of both kids together this was about the best we could do. Orla doesn't really understand the words "stand still" right now!

Pretty thankful to have these sweet little ones in my life and to get to spend some precious time with them.  How was your long weekend?
