Baby Visits the Pumpkin Farm

My grand daughter enjoyed a day at a country pumpkin farm recently.

She is now 15 months old.

It was a perfect coolish downcast day
 which made for some wonderful pics that
my eldest daughter took.

Vivian seemed fascinated by all these colorful orbs!

She took a real shine to that little heirloom one -
she picked it out herself and carried it around with her
the entire visit....along with that stick she found.

She didn't set it down often, but did here.

(But not that stick, haha.)

I love this shot
with her wee gourd in the forefront.

Here Vivi's auntie and momma
 are making her laugh in this shot.

That's her momma's arm - she just finished
"hugging" the giant pumpkin to ease Vivi's reservations
about such a huge weird scary thing taller than she!

Funny how hugs make everything alright.

Notice the wee playhouse on the right
and the two black cows in the background.

And Vivi still holding that stick.

Perhaps she will one day be a conductor
since she's comfortable holding a wand.

Because we really don't want a wizard in the family.

We're Muggles.


She's getting so big so fast; but not quite big enough
 to pick up that huge green heirloom pumpkin by herself!

Can't blame a girl for trying!

I adore her little black chucks shoes-
they're just like the ones her momma wears.

We called those "fish-head sneaks" when I was young.

Our darling grand daughter is growing so fast!

Seems like just a moment ago
 that I blogged about
 her first visit to a pumpkin patch!

Thanks so much for your visit today.

Smiles, hugs and prayers to each one of you!




  1. what a sweet lil lady!
    she's adorable ..

  2. Oh my word, she is so precious. What a perfect little smile and she looks like she is having such a great time. We are still hoping someday for a girl. We have 12 grands and all boys. We need a girl.

    1. You have TWELVE grand sons and not a single grand daughter? LOL that's unbelievable, Marty! WOW! LOL! Well you need to fly here when Vivi gets to be tea party age and enjoy her with me, then! ♥

  3. Your granddaughter is the same age as my granddaughter. Vivi is absolutely adorable. How fun to have this day at the pumpkin farm. We are hoping to go this weekend with our little Charlotte and also my older granddaughter Abby that is 7. They love going to these places. Have a great Friday and wonderful weekend.

  4. Michele,

    Thanks so much for your visit and the comment that had me laughing. We GET each other!

    Oh, that Vivian is just beautiful. That soft baby hair. I love holding Madelyn, and just stroking her fine hair-what a natural blessing that we never have again!!! But back to Vivian, she clearly loves her surroundings. It's wonderful when babies love to explore and their curiosity outweighs their fears. Gorgeous pics-I know you are a proud grandma, just like me. BTW, what does she call you? Everything is different these days.

    Madelyn's 1st birthday party is Saturday at our house. A festive, fall, fun, outdoor party. She actually turns 1 on November 11, but we didn't want to push it with the weather. We are having a forecast of 75 degrees and sunny.

    Keep up the posts and pics!!!
