a "few" pics at the patch!

the Autumn chill and dampness has officially arrived in the 

Pacific Northwest! 

it was a foggy, foggy day at Spooner Farms!

...perhaps she should have been flying under instrument flight rules!

the "pumpkin heads" were ready to roll! Jason's grandmother 

made their hats

the hat cuteness has caught on!  a patch near grandma's house 

wanted to sell them. requests for newborn to adult sizes flew in!  

she has knit over 100 "pumpkin head beanies" this year.  

way to go Grandma Becky!  

we had three cameras on board with our group.

there were over 200 images captured on this occasion.

i kept thinking how careful we were with our family event photography 

before the days of digital!  there was much more "video taping" going on.  

...remembering the early days when the video cam rested

on daddy's left shoulder! 

the tradition rolls on...

...a new generation of pics from the patch! 

i picked up a flat of late season raspberries!

like late season grapes...sooooo sweet!

since the HAWKS have already played, i'll be jammin' in the 

kitchen this afternoon! 



  1. OH LOOK AT THOSE RASPBERRIES! And the kids look so happy my dear! We have a damp day too, but so much fun to be had. I just took out my pumpkin pie from the oven and the house smells heavenly! Enjoy! Anita

  2. What fabulous photos! I remember when the video cam was on my husbands shoulder!! Heavy beasts that they were. Those raspberries look outstanding. Have a great day "jamming".

  3. Looks like you all had a wonderful time Lynne, and you all look fabulous. Enjoy your day and your very autumnal weather... XOXO Mary

  4. Great photos. I love the little hats....adorable. xoxo,Susie

  5. Hi Lynne, hope your toe is better. What a beautiful autumn day, picture perfect. Those are the cutest pumpkin heads I've ever seen. :)
    It's all about the 'Fins at our house today. My husband's ALL TIME FAVORITE football team...poor guy, they've put him through hell and back. ;) BUT even more special to us are the Red Sox, a passion passed down from my dad to me to our children now...and it's looking like one very good October. Go Boston!!!
    PS-Limoncello in tea...MUST try soon...along with that heavenly cupcake recipe you shared a while back. Thanks for reminding me, I'm going to look for it on your page now to save.
    Have a beautiful Sunday, friend.

  6. Your pictures are so lovely and bright. The raspberries are to die for. Yes, didn't we all carry around some form of video recorder? You have a lovely blog! Have a grand week!

  7. I love how you signed off at the end 'With Love!" With LOTS and LOTS of LOVE!!! Great pics and beautiful family! My favorite was the one of YOU!
    Louis Dean always says to take LOTS of pics because you never know which one will turn out! I delete nearly half of all my pics.....
    Happy Sunday night. Have a blessed week! those pumpkin head hats!!

  8. Looks like a fun family day, I enjoyed it so much!

  9. Gorgeous photos Lynne! Digital vs the old cam recorder.. so funny. Things have changed and the new way is much different but it works;) The fog has been so dense and the moisture in the air is making it feel cold. I had some fairly thing layers on this weekend! Glad you got to spend some time with the family and looks like a wonderful day. xxL

  10. those hats are adorable + love all your photos.

  11. Loved the pumpkin patch pictures today, Lynne. We also go every year, even though the kids are all grown haha. It's kind of a tradition in our house. The pumpkin hats are adorable and how nice of Grandma to make them.

    Have a happy week.
