Blue eyes in a field of orange

Open my eyes, that I may behold wonderful things…” ~Psalm 119:18
I have many, many blog posts worth to say about Peru, but that's a different blog for a different day....I have to wrap my mind around everything. So for now, a mindless blog about pumpkin picking.
Peru was a wonderful, inspiring, life-changing trip. I am still chewing on and processing all that happened and all the emotions that go along with mission travel.
Pumpkin picking 2011~ It is one of our favorite events of the year. Part of it is the long drive through the country out to the farm. It's become one of our cool weather annual family traditions. Everyone in the family gets to pick one pumpkin. This was year #4 out at the farm.
Evelyn is my budding photographer. Not because she takes the best shots, but that she adores it so much. When she gets ahold of the camera...watch out. She takes 13 million shots in 2 minutes. Mostly of the exact same thing without moving an inch.
Ever wonder what you look like from your little one's perspective?
Evelyn took this one of me when we got to the farm. I don't have to wonder anymore. When you are 4 years old and your Mommy is super tall, here's what you see.






Ah, the wonder of those little eyes.

It was a clumsy day for our sweet, little toddler.
This picture was taken right after she toppled backward, did a hilarious little flip and landed strangely on her right cheek. That bottom lip poked out and she thought about crying, but decided better of it.




Another little fall.
Then back to the store for ice cream. Angel Baby thinks she is big stuff.
Passing by cotton fields on the way home. They beckoned us to stop. The girls dig stuff like this. Nature. Family. All together. It was a great day.
