Ever since we moved to Manotick, one of our favourite family traditions has been our autumn trip to Miller’s Farm to pick our Halloween pumpkins. I don’t know whether it’s the October light or the fact that the boys genuinely love the excursion, but there are always fun photos to be found.
I particularly like this one: which one is the jack-o-lantern with the gap-toothed smile?
He’s almost as tall as his dad, and can carry his own (ridiculously large) pumpkin.
They’re still pretty patient about posing for me. And cute, to boot!
We interrupt this post for a flashback to 2011:
Oh my goodness! Just a few changes in four years, right? Sigh. Some things don’t change, though. The boys went to play parkour on the hay bales while I entertained myself taking photos of not-them with my fish-eye lens.
And since I’m searching the archives, here’s another pumpkin trio — from 2009!
I am grateful to have such sweet boys to indulge me, for family traditions, and for this blog to archive my memories and share them with you. 🙂
