Charlotte's First Visit to the Pumpkin Patch

To say I've been looking forward to visiting a pumpkin patch with would be the understatement of the year. I have been dying to have this moment with Charlotte. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and her first birthday all in the next 3 months is almost too much for my little heart to handle! Our first stop on this three part journey was the pumpkin patch at Burnside Farms.

Look how cute and pretty everything is? I love the mini market and all the scenes with the pumpkins. We chose to Burnside Farms over the other big fall festivals and pumpkin patches in the area mainly because they didn't charge admission. Since this was Charlotte's first visit, we knew we didn't need to spend money on activities and games she couldn't partake in. Plus, how can you resist this cute and quaint little farm?!

Charlotte was not at all a fan of posing next to this pumpkin. I don't know if it was the coarse grass or the foreign object next to her, but about 3 seconds after putting her down she completely lost it and demanded to be picked up.

We tried again by the smaller pumpkins to see if that was less intimidating, but no such luck. The only way she would cooperate would be if I was holding her. I did give her a mini pumpkin to play with so she would be less afraid of the larger ones.

Charlotte still wasn't overly thrilled, but had warmed up to the pumpkins once she had one of her own to play with. The two mini pumpkins we ended up with cost us a whopping $1.87 (man, I wish more things in life were that cheap). Even though they had some good looking full sized pumpkins, we decided we would save the real pumpkin and carving for next year when Charlotte can help a little more.Without the added pressure of having to pick the perfect pumpkin, we directed our attention to Charlotte and capturing memories of her visit to the pumpkin patch. Here are some of my favorite shots from the day:

Even though the pumpkin experience was a little stressful for Charlotte, at the end of the day, all that mattered was that she had her Daddy to protect her from the scary pumpkins and hoist her up on his shoulders to carry her home.
