Pumpkin Patch

***Warning...lots of pics!***

Last year my mom and I took Emily to the DRI Pumpkin Patch in Abilene. We had planned to do this again a couple weeks ago, but timing just hadn't worked out. Finally, yesterday, we were able to make the trip. A willing subject was a little harder to find this year, but we still got some good pictures. Here are a few of my favorite pictures (out of the 89 that we took!).

Ready, set, go...

Emily loved picking up the little pumpkins and carrying them around. We had to remind her to put them back where she got them!
The itty, bitty pumpkins weren't quite where Emily wanted them, so she kept giving them to me and Pearlie!
Okay, everyone's watching!
One of the few times Emily was still. Okay, she wasn't still, but I snapped the picture at just the right time!
One of my favorite pictures!!
She really liked this pumpkin, for a few minutes at least. Then, she rolled it to the ground.
She found grass on the ground that she wanted to share.
I don't remember seeing these sunflowers last year, but they sure were cute for Emily this year!
Emily played in the sand and tasted it for the first time...like a whole handful!
One of the few shots of me and Emily that actually turned out good!
Toward the end of our time there, one of the DRI residents brought Emily this pumpkin. I had planned to buy a small one because she was loving them so much, but they just gave us one!
Emily couldn't quite figure out the corn. She was intrigued by it.
If you're still reading by now, you deserve a prize. That was a lot of pictures!

Great pictures. Now, can you really delete the other 70 or so pictures?

Are you kidding?!? Of course not. Most of them are actually decent, but somehow we got one that had no people in it, just one of the photo op setups!
