Hall’s Pumpkin Farm 2011

The weekend before last, we took the girls on their annual trip to the pumpkin farm.

It’s not really a farm. It’s set up more as a cash cow a store, and entertainment area.

It is a GREAT place for pictures, if there weren’t a million gillion people there.

BUT, I did the best I could and I did get a few nice shots. They have some great props; a corn field, pumpkins, hay stacks, tractors, and an old truck.

My oldest daughter had to work, so we just had the two little ones – my stepdaughters.

The day was a HOT one – 94 degrees. The sun shined bright, bright, bright.

I, myself, was miserable and sweating buckets. I did not take near as many photos as last year, due to the fact, I was about to pass out from heat stroke.

I’m not sure if I have mentioned lately that I am in early menopause, and I have a thyroid disorder. Both grant me a nice summer body temp year around. Yippee!

I, also, had a sunburn from going to the State Fair the day before. 🙂

Still, it was fun. The girls got to wear their costumes (these are for play since we don’t get to do trick or treat with them). And we had fresh kettle corn (along with several bottles of water).

These were on the old truck. I LOVE THIS TRUCK.

We moved to the tractors.

Jason took Molly into the corn maze. I was way too hot for that – absolutely NO WIND. Instead, I took Bridget to the playground. She had a ball – jumping, sliding, and climbing big tires.

We left, and had many cold bottles of water (at least I did).

Maybe, next year, It won’t be as hot (ha!).

If you are local, do check out this great place, Hall’s Pumpkin Farm.

    love the backward shot in the truck. the pink against the blue is gorgeous. I think the only ones where my granddaughter was still enough to get a good shot were inside that truck. haha

  2. Those are great, Angelia! I am so excited today, because on my photo walk yesterday I got what I consider my very best photograph (not quite perfect) to date, of a rose on it’s “last legs.” In other words, it is a bit frazzled around the edges. I had all the settings almost perfect, and no “blinkies” on my info screen! The no blinkies part is really an achievement for me, because I have been having a hard time getting the ISO, f/stop, and aperture correct enough to keep the light and/or white parts in close-up shots from being way overexposed!. I’m going to post it on my photos page – so check it out when you have time!

    Your (step)daughters are beautiful! I remember fun days like that with our boys! I wish that I had had the camera bug back then – there would be a lot more photos to prove that we did those fun sorts of things! 😆

  3. Absolutely stunning. The colours are so crisp. Love.
    It’s cold here in Canada…are you surprised?…so I’d take the 95 degrees any day 😉
    We couldn’t find any pumpkin patches in our area so we ended up going to a grocery store and picking one out there. So we don’t have any photos boo.

  4. I puffy heart that old truck and the pics of your kiddos on it. Super cute! I cannot believe it was 94 degrees — so glad I’m not there! Good for you for making it through this day — your photos are so good!

  6. WOW talk about hot!! We went to a local cash cow that same weekend and it was in the 60’s but with a strong, cold wind, so it felt more like 50’s… you should come up here next year!! 😉 Love the photos of the girls on the tractor

  7. What a bummer it was that hot! Pics are perfect. The oldest one is becoming quite a young lady, isn’t she? Take care and I hope the pre memo pause will disappear soon.
