Rowen at the Pumpkin Patch

This week, we took a trip to the pumpkin patch.  
(I'm pretty sure the "Baby and Pumpkin" photo op is one of those Top 10 Must Have Photographs with Baby, right?  )
I think it is safe to say that Rowen had a pretty good time and we definitely got a couple of "Baby and Pumpkin" shots!

I have very fond memories of going to choose pumpkins every October with my Mom, so it was fun going to the very same farm with Rowen.  Since we live in a condo, we decided not to bring home any biggie pumpkins, but we did pick out a little pie pumpkin. 

Rowen didn't really understand what the pumpkins were...but she seemed very amused by the abundance of strange, orange guys everywhere.


Standing up on her own!  Or well, propped up against a pumpkin technically.

Farm made jam was on sale since open season is coming to an end.   We picked out a raspberry jelly (my pick), strawberry rhubarb (Lowell's pick) and took a gamble on pumpkin jam.  OHMAHGAWD, pumpkin jam turned out to be the most delicious stuff ever.  I don't want to ever stop eating it. 

Along with the jam and little pumpkin, we picked up some veggies and a box of butter tarts.  We tried a tart and had some hot apple cider when we were at the farm...and as we were pulling out of the parking lot, we decided to run back in to grab a box of tarts.

Yay Farm!  It's pretty awesome that we can take our little urban Baby to the country in just over half an hour's drive.  I'm looking forward to taking her berry picking and back to the pumpkin patch again next year!
