Pumpkin Patch #3

Pumpkin Patch #3 was the annual required trip to Apple Hill. We were so busy in October that we barely made it there. We planned for the Tuesday before Halloween to take a little trip up in the morning. Unfortunately - it wasn't nearly as fun as we had hoped. It was FREEZING and windy and pretty much everywhere was closed. Guess we never tried to go up on a Tuesday morning before. We made the best of it and had fun but the trip was very short lived!

Started off with hot chocolate and apple donuts - YUMMY!!:

The kids ran around for a little while by the pond while we tried to stay warm. I was also experimenting with my new 85 mm lens:

James was working on this apple all day:

I think she's done:
