Fun at the Pumpkin Patch

Eliza's toddler class met at the pumpkin patch this morning for a fun little field trip. Because I was feeling pretty well and knew it wouldn't be a long adventure, I decided to tag along. One of Eliza's favorite Portuguese words is "ab√≥bora," which means pumpkin, so she knew exactly where we were going when Nathan told her. As soon as we let her out of the car, she ran straight to the field of pumpkins and surveyed her options.
She enjoyed running through the pumpkin patch and finally picked her pumpkin. The preschool received an amazing deal and the children were able to pick any pumpkin for just a dollar! We got a huge, beautiful pumpkin that we are excited to carve tonight for our family home evening.
I decided to wear an orange shirt, which maybe wasn't the best idea. More than one person commented that I should have put a jack-o-lantern face on my stomach, as it looked like a giant pumpkin. Awesome!!
Eliza slowed down for a few seconds and (somewhat) posed for pictures with Mom and Dad.

She then joined the rest of her classmates for a group picture:
They weren't too excited about staying still.
We also managed to get a family photo and a couple of cute shots of Eliza.

Eliza in a daze induced by too many pictures being taken.
On the way out, Eliza made sure to say bye-bye to the scarecrow.
She also made sure we took our pumpkin home.
It was a wonderful outing. I hope she enjoys carving the pumpkin tonight!


  1. Really though, you are beautiful. And toddler Nike's? A-freaking-dorable.

    I just miss you so much.

  2. Oooo! I so need to get a pumpkin soon! I love how excited she is about the pumpkins. You look awesome by the way. And I'm pretty sure that a jack-o-latern on your stomach would be cute, but sooooo not what a prego lady wants to hear.
