A couple of weekends ago we took advantage of the fantastic fall weather (it was sunny!) and went out to the pumpkin patch on Sauvie Island. Chris had bought groupons for the Oregon-heart shaped corn “maize” (get it???) so we invited my brother and his family, and Chris’ brother’s family. We got there around 9:30 and the crowds started to quickly gather…we checked out the animal barn, the kids took a tractor ride out to the pumpkin patch to pick a few pumpkins, and then we did the short half of the maize. By noon there were a ton of people there – cars were lined up for about a mile just waiting to get on the bridge to Sauvie Island. I’m glad we got there early and got to hang out in relative low crowd-chaos! Considering my busy month, I’m just happy that I got to experience some sort of autumn-related festivities…ah, why can’t Halloween be year-round?
Nothing says autumn romance like rusty farm equipment. And porta-potties.
Chris’ brother, nephew, niece, and sister-in-law.
The newest member of the Koski family, Nora Paige. Just over a week old! She’s hard core.
What a handsome family of four! And they’re all smiling – oh wait, I think Nora just has gas…
