Pumpkin Patch 2008

Last week we made our annual trip to the pumpkin patch. We started doing this a couple of years ago with our good friends the Dahles. Angela Dahle is America Tarpein's little sister, and America is married to my older brother Chris. We have taken pictures of our kids together at the pumpkin patch for the last couple of years, for Tia America. This year our other good friends, the Burgoons, joined us. I've know Ben Burgoon since I was about 6 years old. I also met his wife Faith when we were youngsters, but we never knew each other that great growing up. Faith and I have since become good friends!
The weather was a little rainy and muggy, but it made for great picture lighting!
Mattie and Daddy picked out a pumpkin for them to carve together, another fun family tradition. I don't get involved in the carving business, just the eating of the toasted seeds! This year Matt wanted to do something funny and unique I guess, so he found a favorite picture of ours of Gibbs. The picture was taken when I was pregnant with Mattie, and Matt was goofing around with Gibbs. I think that the pumpkin turned out quite hilarious! And, its a good thing we took pictures of our pumpkin right away, because it was all caved in the next morning. Got to love the FL humidity!
