In honor of October, I will be counting down my top 5 favorite pumpkin patch photos of all time (or at least the 4 1/2 years that I have had kids.) I love taking pictures of my children. I especially love pictures of my kids with pumpkins. I am crazy about those big round orange symbols of Autumn. I have to force myself to walk away and not buy a pumpkin every single time I see one. I want them all over my house during this time of year. Naturally, kids and pumpkins together, in the same photo, is just about as good as it gets in my opinion.
So, here is my Number 5 in my Pumpkin Pictures Countdown
This is from October 2006. I love Ava's sweet expression. I also love the way the light makes the pumpkins look almost as if they are glowing. I can also see the sunlight in her tousled hair. It was a cool crisp sunny day in a field of big beautiful pumpkins. And Ava looked so cute in her funky striped tights. Yes, this is one I look back on fondly.
