It's pumpkin time!

This year we went nuts and decided to visit two pumpkin patches instead of one.

We spent a lot of time looking for a weird shaped pumpkin to carve. This patch happened to have a lot of good looking pumpkins. We finally found one that we thought was strange enough and loaded it into the wagon. Here's Shelby at pumpkin patch 1, waiting while Steven pays.

In line to pay

Time for a little wagon ride back to the van.

And on the way home, we came across a second pumpkin patch. This one had more unique pumpkins, and a petting zoo and pony rides!

and scarecrows of course.

Shelby is here meeting the bossy little pig that took over the pen. Apparently this little piggy took over the big goats bed, and started running the place the day it arrived.

The goat seemed to take an interest in Shelby.

And there were bunnies!

Pretty nice haul, don't you think Shelby?

Well she doesn't look all that impressed. As usual, the most exicitng part of pumpkin day is smelling the hay.

Great Work, Shelby! That's all in a pug's work, keeping track of the pumpkins! Nice centerpiece, but how come they're all on the table?

Shelby is so lucky to be out and exploring the sites like a pumpkin patch and petting zoo. She is so cute and well-mannered. Well done, Shelby's parents!

Shelby looks so happy to be riding in the wagon!! Why walk when you can ride.

I continue to be so impressed by how well mannered and behaved Shelby is. Her parents should get the "Pug Parents of the Year Award" for helping her to delvelope into a well rounded (ha ha) Pug.

Dear Winnie-I imagine you are sewing or creating something beyond Yoda or The Poochador for this year's unveiling of
Miss Shelby's Halloween Costume, or will be
have to wait till next year? We are so spoiled by the fashions you have created!

Yes, I'm trying, though time is running short, and I hope I finish in time. Steven and I had a hard time figuring out what she should dress up as this year. After all, it's hard to beat Yoda and Poochador.

I'm crossing my fingers that nothing goes wrong with the construction of the costume and we get a good photo this year.
