Pumpkin Patch Memories



- This will be a two for one post - a trip down memory lane with SOOC shots -

Every year since Diva was little, we've taken the kids to our local pumpkin patch around Halloween. Frog and I have been using a lot of pumpkins in our home school this week. Last year I took Frog while Diva was at school. I didn't get any pictures because I was too busy holding his hand.

Today we drove past the pumpkin patch and alas, it seems to be no more. There were rumors that last year would be the end. Too much work, not enough volunteers. The farm is still there right along the highway. They have grown some pumpkins that will be available at our local farm stand, but the festival of the pumpkin patch will not take place this year. This got me a little nostalgic and I pulled out all of the old pumpkin patch pictures.

Since these were taken when we didn't have the ability to edit - I thought they'd be fun to share for SOOC. I did set them to music just for fun - Enjoy!

Perfect. It's not about the editing. It's about the memories captured, the love, the holding on to it for as long as you may live.

I loved the pumpkin slide show.

Thanks Melody -

It is fun to go back a put together a catagory of memory like this - I think I'll be doing one for past halloween costumes soon.

Love the photo slide show! You captured some great memories. I miss going to the pumpkin patch...to me it always heralded the true beginning of Autumn.

Funny how it wasn't all that long ago that we couldn't edit our photos :-)

Those are all beautiful, I love how you put them together! So sad about the farm being gone, I hope you can find another one for this year!

I enjoyed the slide show, and the music was a nice touch! I don't know if you've ever seen Little People, Big World on TLC but they have a pumpkin farm and that's what your photos made me think of!

Lovely show. Very sad that your pumpkin patch is no more.

And thank you for the beautiful photo of Frog for my new blog :)
