Sunday Snapshot "A visit to the Pumpkin Patch"

Pumpkin Patch 2012 027 wm
Once again, the time arrived for our annual Pumpkin Patch visit. We were later than usual this year so there were not many left on the ground but it was still fun to watch the girls running through the field in search of the perfect pumpkin.

Each year when I look back, I'm a bit blown away by just how much the girls grow and change. This was last year's visit to the same spot.

I visited my friend Helen's flower shop this week where she had some beautiful and unusual arrangements made. This was one of my favorites. I'm not an "orange" lover but this flower is so amazing to me.

Hi! It's me......I'm back.....from the land of "too much to do, think I'm on over-load, need some time-out and where did I go?" (Ever been there? Yeah...I thought felt kind crowded there....) 

'K....nough said.

So.....I thought I'd post some recent pictures. We were driving home from school and grocery shopping and passed the park where I spotted a sun flare. (And just happened to have my equipment with me as I'd had a shoot on location that day.)

And it didn't take long before my two nut-balls were hamming it up.

I mentioned the last time I blogged that I'd post some pictures of the kids fooling around on same stage where Steven Tyler had performed this summer. I didn't get back here till today. And I hate strongly dislike saying I'll do something and not doing it (I said I dislike doing it....didn't say I didn't do......catch the difference?)

blog 2 are those pictures from August. Dahlia acting like Miss Diva and Milana (aka Miss Wild Thang) doing an amazing impression of Elaine 
(circa: Seinfeld).

It's definitely fall around here and I feel like I'm finally coming up for air. I've spent way too much time with my nose in this screen (building my website: and trying to finish my photo blog attached to that site as well as tweaking my branding and marketing.....puff,puff. Almost done and beginning to feel human again). (How's that for a run-on sentence?)

Have a wonderful week!
