Sunday morning dawned bright and beautiful.
I have been wishing all month for the perfect day to get some fall family pictures at our church’s pumpkin patch.
So I came before the Lord with a simple request -
That we would all be dressed in time, fed in time (with no barfs), pumped in time, and make it to church (a 30-minute drive) on time so that we could go to the Pumpkin Patch after for our fun family photo experience.
Well, my prayers of getting there dressed and on time were answered (which is a miracle in itself).
But the fun family experience?
Not so much.
My fairy-tale photo shoot ended up being a bit of a battle with the sun, wind, toddler moodiness, tired baby, and other comedy of errors.
And I didn’t even tell you how in the family photos I am shamelessly whispering bribes to the Happy Buddy of iPad time in exchange for smiles!
We did have a few enchanting moments, though…
Although I’m thinkin’ that sweet smile is more a reaction to the wind blowing in his face than anything else! ¬†Ha!
Hoping your pumpkin patch photos were a bit more successful than ours!
Happy Pumpkin Patch-ing!
