4th annual pumpkin patch visit

I finally feel like Fall has arrived!! Yay! I love this time of year, even though my allergies go crazy. Cool air has started to creep in and the leaves are starting to change! Love it!

I took the kids to the Townsend House to have the kids pictures made by a fabulous photographer. This is our second year in a row (but 4th year since Landon was born) to have her do these and they are amazing!! I am a big fan of Crystal Garcia and the work that she does. She recently moved to Texas, but still comes to Ruston quite often to continue to shoot clients in this area. Check out her work on her website at I really appreciate her making the trip over to do this again!

I also want to mention Kim Birch, the owner of the Townsend house. I love her! Not only does she do a great job for her customers (and has bailed me out several times when I have to entertain last minute!!), but every year at this time, she brings in all of these pumpkins to sell and lets anyone come take pictures on her premises. All proceeds from the sell of pumpkins go to DART. She also invites local schools and preschools to come visit for a field trip and even reads books to them and lets them walk away with little pumpkins.

Here are the pictures from this visit. Let me say, I was surprised that Kennedy let me put her first hat (ever) on and she actually kept it on for a while! Not something she will wear a lot, but it was fun to have her picture taken with it! She was also fighting a cold and ear infections so I was glad we managed to squeeze out a couple of good shots especially when it was pretty difficult to get her to smile! Thanks for looking!

He looks so big in these pictures (sniff sniff)

And this one is my favorite!
