Buzzing Around The Pumpkin Patch

This year's trip to the Pumpkin Patch was so much fun. Last year B was only 3 month's old so she really didn't get to excited about the whole day. But this year she had a grand time! Her costume is so perfect - Miss B is a Bee! Her little tulle skirt had a cute little bounce to it when she walked.
Grandpa.....this one is too heavy! She gave it a pretty good try, but soon walked off to find one that was Brooklyn sized.
She had such a nice time picking up pumpkins. We had to find the area that had some littler pumpkins so that she could lift them. And when she would lean down to pick one up her little skirt tilted up and looked adorable.
This pumpkin patch had a horse trough filled with the itty bitty decorative pumpkins. I loved seeing her stand on her tippy toes to be able to reach in and pick out pumpkins - one for each hand please. :)
We sat her on a hay bale for lots of pictures. I do have some nice, pretty ones, but this one just makes me smile so much. Her grandpa was putting two itty bitty pumpkins on her lap and she'd toss them back to him. She got to laughing so hard - big, belly laughs even. Grandpas are really funny!
Last year we saw several families eating picnic lunches, so that's what we did this year. Packed a nice lunch and threw a couple of blankets on the ground. One of the most fun parts of being a grandma is being able to splurge on toddler snacks. I bought some Lunchables Jr.'s and the cutest little apple juice called Tummy Ticklers. There were 11 four ounce containers and a cute little Tigger top that has a no spil straw. Darling! Both of my kids were looking at them and I did explain that when they were Brooklyn's age we couldn't have afforded this sort of thing what with buying the diapers and paying daycare. But as grandparents we can and it's a beautiful thing. :)
Good times.....

Seeing your fun pictures with Brooklyn makes grandparent look like such fun! I do have stepgrandchilren whom I love, but not had the opportunity to be around them in the way your are with B. I don't know if my own two kids are ever going to bless me with grandbabies, so for now, I live vicariously through pictures such as your's. It does look fun!

She looks darling in that costume!

She looks adorable in that costume! What a cute idea to have kids dress up to go to the pumpkin patch. First time that I have heard of that.
