Hay Rides, Apples and Pumpkins- Oh My!

Some of my favorite picture from this weekend:
Kyra being so serious. Because you never know about those hay rides, something might just jump right out and get 'cha!
After a few minutes she got into it. Peering over the side, pointing to all the different things in the orchard. Apples over here. Pumpkins over there and acres and acres of Christmas trees!

And the scenery was absolutely beautiful! The best thing about New England has to be the fall colors.

Apples were next on the list. Kyra pulled and pulled so hard on some of the more stubborn apples she needed her tongue to stick out for a little reinforcement.

And when the apple finally pulled free, she was just beside herself with excitement!

Then it was off to find the perfect pumpkin.

Where she tried to score the biggest one she could find.

But finally settled on one that was more her size.

This last one is my favorite. I think she was quietly telling her final pumpkin pick "I will love you with all my heart."


  1. adorable ... looks like fun was had by all!

  2. I have to stick out my tongue sometimes too -- it does help!

  3. I am glad to see that my little man is not the only one with a serious face. Looks like you all had a blast!

  4. Love the pics! Looks like y'all had fun. I wish the leaves were changing here. At the rate it's going, we'll be waiting until January for the leaves to change.

  5. Good god - cutest thing ever!!! LOVE the bottom picture.

    Also I am loving how she keeps her hair tidy and up! If I even *try* and put a band in Kira's hair she rips it out (along with half her head) and won't let me put it back in again. (She's so trying) Perhaps I shall fly you out here to wrangle some sense into my child.

  6. VERY cute. I, too, enjoyed the last photo. Ughh, I wish our leaves changed color- fat chance here though.


  7. I LOVE LOVE the pic of you and her!! you should have that one in your house!! very cute!!!
    And the last one ... makes your heart melt!!! hope your good!!!
