Trevor and I love pumpkin patches. We visit at least 3 different patches each October. As soon as we arrive, I pose Trevor amongst the pumpkins, hoping for that perfect picture with gorgeous colors, ideal lighting, and his winning smile. Of course, he'd much rather play than pose for pictures. I usually get one or two acceptable photos before he zips off to enjoy the pumpkin bowling, corn bath, or hay mazes.
During our first pumpkin patch visit of the year, he sat nicely for one obligatory photo, then proceeded to pretend he was a pumpkin in all subsequent photos. It was so funny. Even better was the way he announced, "I'm a pumpkin!" each time.
I used this sketch from Shannon White.
What a fun sketch! I love the way it turned out.
"I'm a Pumpkin!"
