Pickin' Pumpkins

This past weekend Collin and I had lots of fall fun! We picked out a pumpkin from a local farmer's roadside stand. And then on Sunday we went to an actual farm to do the corn maze and hay ride and all the other fun things that come with being at a farm! It was a delightful fall weekend with the perfect fall temperatures. I loved being able to spend time with my sweet husband. And I love that he is as into things like this as I am. He really enjoyed picking out our pumpkin and spending time at the farm on Sunday. I definitely got very blessed to have him as my husband! Plus he is extremely supportive (and patient) of my new-found photography habit. Anyway, I took A LOT of photos over the weekend, around 150 actually! So today I'm just gonna share with you some of the ones I took at the pumpkin stand!

It's such a cute, lumpy pumpkin!

This pumpkin probably weighed about 20lbs.  It was ridiculously heavy and huge.

The winning pumpkin!  I love it so much.  It has the perfect stem and it's a good oval shape, too.

We thought that one pumpkin was huge until we saw this.  I had to make Collin stand next to it so we had a good gauge for just how large it really is!

There were so many gourds!  They are such funny looking vegetables but I LOVE that they are eccentric.

I just love our pumpkin and it makes me so happy to see it sitting on our front porch. It's the little things. =)

I hope you had a glorious fall weekend! Enjoy this beautiful Tuesday and may it be full of blessings for you!
