The Perfect Pumpkin

Good evening!  What a fall like weekend it has been here in Georgia.  I am even more excited because fall officially starts tomorrow!  Woohoo!  They are also predicting much cooler temps for us.  Even some 50's!  Bring it on.  This girl is ready.

To kick off fall Mama, Darbee and I headed to the North Georgia Mountains on Friday for a girls day trip.  We were on a mission to visit Burt's Pumpkin Patch.  Somewhere we had not been before.  I had read rave reviews on it and couldn't wait to check it out myself.  I brought my good camera along hoping to take some fall pictures of Darbee.  Nothing disappointed.  We had a GREAT time and the pumpkin patch was perfect.  A million pumpkins in any shape size and even color you could imagine. 

Some of these larger ones were priced up to $100.  They were HUGE!

 I had not ever seen blue pumpkins...have you? 

 We enjoyed apple cider and a slice of a delicious pumpkin roll.  It was such a fun time.

I will go ahead and warn will probably have an overload of pictures!  I took a TON!

I just love this one.  It shows the true Darbee personality.  
I think she was a little tired of pictures.  Haha...

After taking A LOT of pictures, we had to find the perfect pumpkin.  
Ms. Darbee set out to find her the one she wanted.

She ended up finding one just the right size for her.
She was so happy to bring it home.

We even picked out some tiny ones to bring home too!

Thinking I would take a lot of pictures, we even took a change of clothes.  
We found another perfect picture spot right at the pumpkin farm.  A covered bridge.
Darbee loved watching the fish swim below and had a blast feeding them.

She could see the fish below through the cracks.  
So funny.

On the road back home, there was a field with acres and acres of sunflowers.  You could pay by the car and drive down to them and take all the pictures you wanted.
Of course we had to take that opportunity for another wonderful natural backdrop for some photos.
It was fun walking through the sunflowers.  They were so tall!

We had such a fun day and even topped it off with a stop at Ikea on the way home.  I love that place.

I hope you have had a great weekend.  
Thanks for visiting and Happy Fall!

Until next time...
