pumpkin patch revisited

ok, so we had to go back to the pumpkin patch last night for family home evening so that everyone else in the family could pick out a pumpkin! beacuse lala had already gotten one last week at her school field trip, she designated herself to be kawena's little pumpkin picker outer!

i will spare you the details because, well, we pretty much did the same thing as we did at lala's field trip, minus the corn maze. oh, and add about a gazillion mosquitos, poor mitch! he is my mosquito repellent! whenever he is around i NEVER get bit because they all like his blood better! he's just tastier!! good for me, bad for mitch!

the weather was ideal! we arrived just before the sun began to go down and i was able to get some pretty cool pictures as we enjoyed the beautiful sunset!

so, if you will endulge me, i wanted to share some pictures:

I love the sunset one and how you can see Lala's hair that has come undone on the sides of her head. It's little details like that, that I love.

Such great pictures. I LOVE the close up of Kawena. Such a cutie. And, what a beautiful sunset shot. A clear day in October in Oregon?! Is that for real?!

After reading these comments, I'm going to be bold and speak for us all in asking how you edit your photos? Do you use a certain program? I did some reasearching, and your first posts didn't have the cute text and soft edges. I just think it adds so much to the pictures. I especially love the ones of Nani looking and then finding the perfect pumpkin. I sure am lucky to know your beautiful girls. I just love them!
