Yesterday, handsome husband and I trekked to Pasco, Washington for some pumpkin patch fun before partaking in some Endless Shrimp.
Here are the results.
*warning: you'll see my hair looking very strange. there were hurricane force winds.*
We went to a place called "Country Mercantile." They have a cool, not so little store & cafe. Lucky for us, (mainly lucky for Eric) they had free samples out of many of their sauces and dips. We stayed in there for a little bit, but it was pretty overwhelming. Apparently we picked a very popular time to visit.
|We conquered this hay tower.|
|They took us on a tractor ride past the corn maze and down to the "patch." Surprisingly, the tractor and trailer were NOT blown over by the wind.|
|In true male form, Eric picked a 40 pound pumpkin. See his grin? Such pride!|
|These are pumpkins.|
|Strange hair alert.|
|My warty pumpkin, along with the one Eric picked out for baby girl.|
|The three additional pumpkins we got were only 1/4th of The Great Pumpkin of 2011.|
We'd patched up a hunger, so afterward we slipped over to Red Lobster to pretend we were ritzy and eat endless amounts of shrimp. Then we spent money on baby clothes. Our little girl NEEDED a dress, and we found one for 40% off. Plus, we found some clothes for our first nephew, Topper (Travis Otto Petersen). Stan & Elizabeth were in town briefly this weekend for a wedding, so we had to spoil their soon-to-arrive bundle, as well.
(For reference, I'm including some of their wedding photos from March 2011)
|Brothers. Are annoying.|
|Before the cousins were conceived.|
And just for kicks, why don't we revisit our engagement shoot of September 2010.
|Aww, fer cute!|
