2011 Pumpkin Picking with the Kjars

We certainly had a great time picking out our pumpkins at Rasmussen Farms yesterday...we chose our wagon, and filled it with gorgeous pumpkins :) We got a few that were bright orange, one was deep green, and a couple with "warts" (my favorite). Brooks was constantly on the move, exploring the mounds and mounds of pumpkins, only to sit still for the pictures I did my best to capture. Becca and I laughed about our boys (born just 3 week apart) and how last year we could just plop them down and take loads of pictures...this year was a bit more of a challenge. ;) But we loved every minute with the sweet Kjar family, soaking up the gorgeous fall colors, the gray sky, and our cute kids that love being together.

They even have a swingset out back! Brooks swung on a big-kid-swing for the first time, and did great!! He loooooooooved having Grandma behind him giving him the sweetest, slow pushes as he held onto the chains with all his might :)

Comparing Little B last night to last year's pumpkin picking...quite the change. I love my growing boy.

Oh Haley, please give me some of your beauty and style! You look gorgeous, of course.
Brooks looks like he had a blast! I love these fun pictures of him and the pumpkins. What a fun day! I hope the weather is good tomorrow so we can go! If not, maybe some cinnamon melts will have to do...

That looks like such a fun time! I'm so excited to take Jude--hopefully we can get some awesome pictures like you did (once again) and he's not sleeping the whole time or something. Warty pumpkins?? I vaguely remember those coming out of my parent's garden once or twice, and they're so awesome! It reminds me of a witches face, very Halloween. Oh and Brooks is just the most studly of little guys--love the puff vest and those awesome kicks and that cute, quick smile you get before he takes off! And that cardigan? Yeah, you can just go ahead and drop that off at my house the next time you're up here. <3
