We read “It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!” every year; it’s our Autumnal version of “The Night Before Christmas” and since I’ve had a love of Snoopy since I was a toddler, last year we decked Jensen out in a custom embroidered sweater with Linus, Charlie Brown and Snoopy on his belly. Naturally he had a new hat for his patch visit, little did we know how well the tassled style would work with all of his leaping around.
His first year at the patch it was so easy to get beautiful photographs of him as he was only just walking at 8 months. This year our Little Adventurer knew his own mind and had his own agenda. Thankfully it included giggling with Dadda and at some point, choosing his own pumpkin.
We were nearly 7 months pregnant by this time with Baby Dragon. I looked like a pumpkin too…and I loved it.
Eventually we did get to pick our pumpkins ~ after MUCH puddle jumping.
The patch visit was topped off with a shopping spree in the farm shop and a delicious lunch in the cafe. I can’t wait for this year’s trip…only two weeks to go!
See you soon Mr Scarecrow!
