J's family made our becoming-annual Fall family visit to Apple Annie's Orchard in Wilcox the weekend before Halloween. At Apple Annie's we reveled in Fall by eating pumpkin pancakes with apple cider syrup (which sadly was not available to purchase - I was ready to buy a gallon of it to last until next year so this was deeply disappointing), and we picked pumpkins in the pumpkin patch, and we watched the boys play in the giant bins of corn kernels. I was in Amateur Photographer Heaven (thanks to J's sis who had an extra camera card since I forgot mine!!!). And thus, here are way too many photos of our Fall family fun.
E'rybody on the Tractor
BB just wanted to drive drive drive the tractor
BB spent a lot of special time with Papa this visit - he loved riding in the wheelbarrow around the orchard
My handsome little man
My lil punkins
SS just wanted to touch the pumpkins - Nacky pointed out that they look like balls, which he loves to play with, so maybe that's why? You can see him cutely reaching for the pumpkins in the next couple pictures:
And of course, a family pic
Aren't Auntie Shawna and Mr. Jeff fun?
(I am so bummed about the glare in the pic on the right)
More Punkin Poses
Corn field on the way to the pumpkin patch
Pumpkin soil between his toes
In this next series of pictures, you can watch SS figure out how to slide down the pumpkin.
Mr. Jeff fashioned BB a belt out of some pumpkin stalk after BB's pants were slipping down
This photo is such a classic BB photo, so very him right now. Not sure if it's a ninja or what - he is such a playful little boy.
And here's SS playing "Throw-it-down-someone-pick-it-up-throw-it-back-down"
I want to preface these pictures by saying that this would definitely be a punishable offense, however apparently it is a "game" that BB and Nacky play that Nacky encourages in Nacky and Papa's backyard. Yes, that is my son throwing dirt clods at his grandmother. Mama is totally out of the loop on this one. So I just took some pictures.
Here are some sweet Nacky-SS pictures to make up for the above photos.
I love this Papa-BB picture. They have such a special bond.
Mr. Jeff pushed BB all over the orchard in that wheelbarrow
Another classic BB pic - such a goofball
