Pumpkin Patchin'

Fall in Seattle is my absolute favorite. Trees turn at their own pace (always just a little too soon). The air gets this delicious crisp to it. The rapid pace of life comes to a screeching halt after the short Seattle summer. Really - it's the time that our beautiful outdoors just beg you to go explore.

On one of these perfect fall Sundays, we met up with Walt's sisters and wandered through the Carpinito Brother's pumpkin patch down in Kent. It was Walt and my first time there, which is pretty surprising considering we grew up within 15 miles from the location. At any rate, it was a class act and we got a steal of a deal on some gourds, fresh produce and hot apple cider. Mmm. 

All attention was on the most adorable little 7 month old baby I know, Alexander, as he experienced pumpkins (and bark) for the first time. My husband also stole my attention, as he easily picked up only the LARGEST pumpkins in the patch. No big deal - he's a stud.

Here are a few photos of our afternoon, since this rain is already beginning to wash away those crisp, fall memories.
