...the pumpkin tradition...


I wouldn't say that either Dave or I grew up with traditions.  There may have been things that we did every year, but nothing like a "trumps all else" type of tradition that we knew that we can count on every single year.

In the past 8 years, Dave and I have been a part of 2 yearly traditions.  One we started on our own, and one that we stumbled upon in 2006 when we made a trip to the pumpkin patch with some of our best friends and Merrick's best friend.

I think the pictures tell the story better than I could.  So here is our tradition, in pictures...

FALL 2006- Pumpkins and Pines

FALL 2007 - Pumpkins Galore

FALL 2008 - Pumpkins Galore

FALL 2009 - Aholt Farms

FALL 2010 - Valley Farms

FALL 2011- Valley Farms

FALL 2012 - Pumpkins Galore

So, that's the story.  And if I have any say so, we will still be telling the same story, albeit a little longer, for 15 or 20 more years.  Who knows, maybe our kids will eventually tell the same story.  :)


  1. I love longstanding family traditions. Some of my favorite childhood memories are traditions that my family has, and I can't wait to continue those and start new ones with Zuzu.

  2. Love this! I wish my photos were as organized! :)
