It’s the great pumpkin patch!

October 21, 2012

“Gurrrrl…I’ve got this pumpkin.”

A weekend of fall activities and camping was exactly what our family needed this weekend. It felt so good to break out from my usual stay-at-home routine of, well, staying home all the time. Lately I’ve been getting so hung up in the insignificant details of parenthood and somewhere along the line I’ve become a mixed bag of boring and stress (never know what you’re gonna get!). But the kids’ excitement over corn mazes, pumpkins and anything Halloween has been so infectious and uncontainable, there has been plenty of enthusiasm (to put it lightly) to go around. Speaking of excitement, the boys deviated from conventional orange and picked out white pumpkins this year. Rebels.


Update: Congrats to Erin and Kelli for winning the Tad Carpenter giveaway!

    I think that’s why I love holidays so much – it breaks that regular routine and the kids get so excited about them

    I totally understand what you mean…it can be easy to become overwhelmed and stagnant by the monotony of chores and wiping noses. How do you find time to complete your beautiful design work? You are very talented.
