pumpkins!

Pumpkin time is here! Last week AK and I spent a rainy day carving a pumpkin. She had fun scraping the pumpkin "guts" out with me, although she was terrified of them when I first pulled the top of the pumpkin off. :) I did not get to take many pictures, as my hand were covered in the before mentioned "guts."Saturday we went to Mayfield farms in Athens, TN. They have a great farm, corn maze, and pumpkin patch! We definitely plan to visit again with all her little friends! We knew a cold front was coming through this weekend, but did not know it was going to be quite so chilly! Good thing I made the last minute decision to bring Anna Kate's heavier jacket. It did not get out of the 40's! Crazy for Chattanooga area in October!

I thought this giant corn was so cute! It is made from Mayfield's famous yellow milk jugs!

little pigs! They were freezing!
she loved this little white "pun-keen"
feeding the donkey... I was amazed at the sunflowers in the background!

it was strange to see them all so vibrant in cold weather!
silly goats!
a freezing hay ride!
picking the perfect pumpkin with daddy
she kept telling us she wanted a baby pumpkin
she found one and was so excited!
