Pumpkin Patch #1

If you recall, our pumpkin patch extravaganza of 2009 was a total bust. If you don't remember, you can refresh your memory by clicking here.
So this year, I'm determined to find the perfect patch.
Here is attempt number #1.
While they sold white pumpkins (hard to find!) and a large variety of those pumpkins you always see on Martha Steward but can never find, it was still not the perfect patch.
We are checking out patch #2 next week - if Charlotte sleeps and the weather holds out that is!

Grace - a little overwhelmed by the 'selection'. Charlotte joined us on this adventure. She was exactly one week old and slept peacefully in her sling. Me being the wonderful mother that I am, forgot to snap a picture of her at her first pumpkin patch. Bad mommy! BAD!!

Hmmmm....the perfect pumpkin?

There it is!

Yes, the perfect pumpkin is green and shaped like an apple. You can tell by her facial expression that she is THRILLED to have finally found it!

A kiss for the pumpkin! 
(Kiss = bumping her forehead against loved object!)

We'll see what happens next week!

does this mean she is loving the sling?

I wouldn't say she's loving it but she's definitely tolerating it...for the moment!
